Our team is here to answer any questions you have and wants to help you choose a method that will fit your lifestyle and budget.
Tooth Replacement Options
We offer a variety of tooth replacement options that can help any patient restore their mouth to optimum oral health. Whether you are missing one tooth or multiple teeth, we can find a tooth replacement option to fit your needs.
One of the biggest concerns when a tooth is missing is that the adjacent teeth may start to shift. A dental bridge can prevent teeth from shifting and restore the full function of your mouth. This procedure uses existing teeth to help support artificial teeth that are fabricated, fitted, and permanently cemented into place. A bridge will look and function just like your natural teeth.
A denture is composed of artificial teeth that are set into a supportive base. With state-of-the-art technology and advancements in modern dentistry, dentures have come a long way and may not be what you are expecting. Dentures can be designed to replace a small number of teeth, a full upper or lower arch, or all of your teeth. Dentures can also be used in conjunction with implants to offer a sturdy and stable replacement solution.
This option creates a beautiful, natural result that blends in seamlessly with your existing teeth. An artificial tooth root is surgically implanted in the jawbone and finished with a prosthetic tooth, such as a crown. This option not only restores the function of your mouth, but also helps to protect the surrounding jawbone.
