What options do you offer to replace missing teeth?

Modern dentistry gives us several options to help patients who want to replace missing teeth and improve their smiles. We offer dental bridges, dental implants, and implant dentures at our Moorhead dental office, and Dr. Andrew Atchison would be happy to meet with you to determine which is best.

Fixed Dental Bridges

We commonly recommend a dental bridge for patients with one or two teeth missing from the same spot in their mouths. Bridges are designed as a unit, with an artificial tooth that sits in the gap and dental crowns secured to adjacent teeth. This means that the anchor teeth on either side must be strong and healthy enough to support crowns. 

Dental Implants

A dental implant is unique because it is a standalone tooth replacement. A tiny titanium post is surgically implanted in your jaw and replaces the lost tooth root. As the implant heals, it forms a secure bond with bone and tissue and becomes stable enough to place a crown, bridge, or denture on top of it. 

Implant-Supported Dentures

Removable dentures are a popular tooth replacement but come with drawbacks, including unpredictable movement and embarrassing moments with friends. At our Moorhead dental office, we take the best of implants and dentures and merge them to deliver stable implant dentures.

Held firmly in place with dental implants, these dentures will never move, slip, or fall out because they are secured in your jawbone.
