How can I replace my missing teeth?

You have three options for replacing your missing tooth or teeth.

Dental implants are an excellent solution for missing teeth because dental implants function, feel, and look just like a natural tooth.  Additionally, they have the potential of lasting a lifetime, so they are quickly becoming the solution of choice for both patients and dentists.

Bridges are the historic "go to" treatment for replacing a missing tooth. A bridge is a replacement tooth suspended between two dental crowns to the left and right of your missing tooth. Bridges can also be supported by dental implants. A bridge will blend seamlessly with your natural teeth.

Partial dentures are arches or plates with replacement teeth added to fill in the gaps in your smile. The arch or plate relies on healthy surrounding teeth to keep it in place with custom clasps that work with your oral structure. Unlike dental implants or bridges, partial dentures are completely removable.

Replacing your missing teeth will allow you to smile, eat, and speak again with confidence. Give us a call to set up an appointment to determine which of the above solutions will work best for your tooth replacement.
