ALTERNATIVES TO DENTAL IMPLANT

Fixed Partial Bridge:

This is a traditional proceture that has been done for more than 50 years. The problem is that dentist end up grinding two other teeth to support the bridge. A lot of times grinmding of teeth leads to sensetive teeth and possibe need for root canals.

Removable partial Denture:

This is a procedure that could cause bone resorption in the areas of the extraction. It is also not very comfortible and somtimes causes social issues.
