Tooth replacement offers more than aesthetic benefits:

  • Add strength and stability to weak teeth

  • Replace missing and or severely decayed teeth

  • Prevent further tooth los

  • Alleviate tooth pain

  • Improving the ability to eat healthy foods

  • Improved speech and overall function

Tooth replacement options may include the following:

Dental Implants

If missing teeth are leaving you feeling self-conscious or you're wearing dentures that are uncomfortable, dental implants can be a very effective solution.

Dental implants are designed to look perfectly natural alongside your other teeth. And they are a long lasting option for restoring your smile. The implant post is made up of titanium and other materials that are compatible with the human body. They are placed in the upper or lower jaw, where they function as a sturdy anchor for a replacement crown. Patients often rave about how their implants feel as secure, stable and natural as their original tooth.  Dental implants can also be used in conjunction with dentures (implanted-supported dentures) providing a more reliable fit that will give you confidence in your dentures.

Dentures & Partial Dentures

Two types of dentures are available for the replacement of missing teeth. Full or complete dentures are used to replace full sets of teeth. When some natural teeth are still present, partials can be used. Partials help keep the remaining teeth from shifting.

Porcelain Bridges

Fixed bridges are a non-removable option to replace missing teeth. They are comprised of two crowns affixed to neighboring – or anchoring teeth. The artificial teeth then sit in between, replacing the missing teeth. They are strong and durable, but will need to be replaced after many years.
