In this video Dr. Nalin Patel dentist in Langhorne, PA and member of Advanced Dental Care discusses the options available to replace missing teeth. The first and most efficient option to replace missing teeth is by dental implants. Dental implants are long lasting tooth root replacements that oral surgeons implant into the jawbone to simulate the root of a pre-existing tooth. Unlike dentures or bridges, dental implants don't move or shift and they can last a lifetime. Dental crowns are the second option available to replace missing teeth. A dental crown is a tooth shaped cap that is placed over a tooth covering the tooth to restore its shape and size, strength, and improve its appearance. Dental bridge is the third option available to replace missing teeth. A dental bridge is a type of crown that is used to fill an empty space between two teeth, which usually occurs after a tooth has been extracted.
