Patients have several more options than they used to when it comes to tooth replacement. At Greater Connecticut Oral & Dental Implant Surgery, Dr. Kurtz and Dr. Lee specialize in dental implant-based tooth restorations like dental implants and the All-on-4 procedure. We also recognize that dental implants may not be the right solution for you—whatever you decide, we want you to feel confident and informed about your tooth replacement solution of choice.
We have provided a general overview of the most common tooth replacement options and their features.
Dental implants are a durable and permanent tooth replacement solution. Their unique design is composed of three parts: the implant post, abutment, and crown. The implant post is surgically placed into the jaw bone, which will fuse with the bone over time. Once healed, a custom-made crown and connecting abutment are placed for a natural and secure look.
Dr. Kurtz and Dr. Lee at Greater Connecticut Oral & Dental Implant Surgery offer dental implant-based solutions at their practice in Danbury, CT, and New Milford, CT.

All-on-4 replaces an entire upper or lower arch of teeth in as little as one procedure. The All-on-4 treatment concept utilizes the strength and durability of dental implants to create a brand-new smile for patients experiencing severe tooth loss and decay.

A dental bridge is a common tooth replacement solution for patients who are missing one or more teeth in between healthy teeth and do not wish to undergo a surgical dental implant procedure. A dentist will place a fixed or removable dental bridge. For patients considering a dental bridge, it is important to note that some healthy teeth may need to be ground down to place the bridge, and the bridge may need to be replaced from time to time.
Traditional dentures are a popular solution for many patients. They are convenient because they are removable at will and offer improvement to oral function without resorting to surgical treatment.
Dentures may require periodic adjustments from your dentist. If your dentures do not fit like they used to, and adjustments fail to make them comfortable, surgical correction may be the solution. Pre-prosthetic surgery is performed by an experienced oral surgeon, such as Dr. Kurtz and Dr. Lee, that prepares the mouth to wear dentures in a comfortable and secure way. You can learn more about pre-prosthetic surgery by visiting our Pre-Prosthetic Surgery page.
