Are you having a hard time chewing due to missing teeth or problem teeth that need to be removed?  We can help. We offer a few different tooth replacement options that can restore your function and improve your quality of life. Let’s talk about how dental implants and dental bridges can change the way you eat, talk, and smile. Let the team at Sunrise Dental help you get the beautiful, functional, healthy smile you deserve!

What are dental implants?

Dental implants are replacement teeth designed to seamlessly mimic natural teeth. We use titanium implants and place them directly into your gums. Once healed, this offers the strong foundation needed for the replacement crowns. Once a crown is loaded into the implant, you will be able to talk, eat, and smile with ease.

Dental implants replace almost 100 percent of your natural chewing power. If you are looking for the most reliable tooth replacement option, dental implants may be for you. However, they do require that you possess a certain amount of available jawbone to be successfully placed. In the case that you are not eligible for dental implants, we offer other replacement options. Learn more about this particular option by visiting our page on dental implants.

What are dental bridges?

Dental bridges are a less invasive way to replace missing teeth. Bridges are made up of three or more beautifully crafted crowns. The end crowns are permanently cemented onto the natural teeth surrounding the gap to provide support for the restoration. The middle crown then replaces the missing tooth. This method of replacement has been tested over time and proves to be a reliable solution for someone who is looking for a noninvasive tooth replacement option.

However, we also offer implant-supported bridges. These are bridges (usually used to replace more than one tooth) that are anchored into the mouth using dental implants. This gives the restoration all the strength of a dental implant while also being versatile in the amount of teeth it replaces. To learn more about dental bridges, please visit our page here.
