ALTERNATIVES TO DENTAL IMPLANT
Fixed Partial Bridge:
This is a traditional procedure 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 grinding of teeth leads to sensitive teeth and possible 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 comfortable and sometimes causes social issues.
