What are alternatives to dental implants?

Mount Waverley Smiles offers various tooth replacement options for patients of all ages. Our modern dentures and dental bridges are great solutions to tooth loss if a patient doesn’t want or need dental implants.

Dentures and Dental Bridges

Dentures and dental bridges stand the test of time when it comes to restoring a person’s natural bite. Unlike dental implants, dentures and bridges are removable and do not require placement surgery.

Removable complete and partial dentures restore your teeth, appearance and ability to bite, chew and speak. Whether you have complete tooth loss, or you have a few teeth missing, dentures or dental bridges are a viable option. 

For patients who want the best of both dentures and implants, we offer implant-retained dentures. This type of denture clips onto the dental implants placed in the jaw.  

Dentures can replace a whole row of teeth or a partial row. Likewise, dental bridges close the gap between teeth, completing the patient’s smile. Dentures rest against the gums, while bridges rely upon surrounding natural teeth to remain secure.
