Implant crowns are self-supporting, non-removable structures that most closely replaces a missing tooth or multiple teeth for the best strength and longevity. Inside the jaw bone, an implant replaces the root portion of the missing tooth and the visible, above the gum portion of the tooth is replaced by a crown that is attached to the implant. The implant crown is not attached to and does not compromise the adjacent teeth so if the adjacent teeth are in good condition an implant crown may be the best tooth replacement.

Bridges are used to replace one or more missing teeth but are non-removable and have to be attached to adjacent teeth on both sides of the missing tooth (teeth). Sometimes bridges are recommended because the adjacent teeth are damaged or crooked and can be made to look or bite properly when the bridge is completed. The surfaces of the adjacent, supporting teeth are carefully shaped in preparation for making the bridge. Bridges are a reasonable tooth replacement restoring moderate strength. They should last many years.

Removable partial dentures are generally less expensive, provide less strength and do not look, feel or work as naturally as real teeth, implant crowns or bridges. One or more denture teeth are attached to a metal frame that is held in place by the remaining teeth. The partial denture must be removed from the mouth for cleaning and during sleep.

Adhesive Bridges are similar to regular bridges but generally can only replace a single tooth because they have limited strength. The replacement tooth is attached to a small metal frame that is adhesively attached onto the back side of the adjacent teeth. They are mostly used to replace a front tooth that does not have too much force on it and when there is not enough space for an implant crown. Although adhesive bridges are intended to be non-removable, they can nonetheless become loose and may need reattaching or replacement.

Some types of dental implants, if proper procedures are followed, have demonstrated a success rate of over 95%* in documented studies.
