    Tooth Replacements

    Losing a tooth or teeth can adversely affect your self-confidence and your general health. When someone has one or more missing teeth it can affect their bite, cause surrounding teeth to shift, change their smile, cause symptoms of TMJ and even speech impediments. If this goes on over a period of time the wear and tear on your remaining teeth can cause severe discomfort in the mouth as well as a greater potential for dental decay and bone loss around the area. We have multiple options for replacing teeth, and we are here to help you choose the best fit for your smile.

    Dentures and Partials

    Depending on how many teeth are missing, a complete denture or a partial denture could be an option for you. A partial denture can keep existing teeth from moving after a tooth loss, aid in chewing food, and talking comfortably.

  • Bridges

    Dental bridges are another option for replacing missing teeth. Bridges consist of a series of connected crowns, one or more crowns in the middle to take the place of the missing teeth, and two crowns attached to existing teeth on each end to act as anchors. There are different kinds of bridges available depending on how many teeth need to be replaced and what area of the mouth the missing tooth is located. Bridges are great options when the surrounding gums and teeth are strong and healthy.


  • Dental Implants

    If you are missing teeth and are tired of having loose dentures dental implants may be a great option for you. To many dentists, implants are considered the gold standard of tooth replacement options. Implants are the most similar to a tooth in both form and function as they mimic the entire structure of your natural teeth. The implant is placed in a patient’s jaw bone, recreating the root portion of a tooth. Once the implant is healed, a crown is attached to the implant to restore the look and function of the missing tooth. Implants generally last longer than bridges or partials and eliminate the hassle of unsecured dentures.
