Missing teeth are more than just a cosmetic concern. Missing teeth can pose a threat to your oral health and may even affect the function of your teeth and jaw. Finding the appropriate solution to restore your missing teeth can improve your oral health and reduce the risk of developing more complex dental problems.
Missing teeth can lead to other complications if they are not addressed if they are not appropriately addressed. If left untreated, missing teeth can lead to bone deterioration which may result in facial sagging. Patients who don’t replace their missing teeth are also at greater risk for additional tooth loss and sitting teeth. In some cases, missing teeth may even lead to gum recession and gum disease. Replacing missing teeth can help restore your confidence and your smile.

- Dental Bridge: A dental bridge can be used to replace one or more missing. Traditionally a dental bridge is supported by two adjacent teeth. For a more secure solution, a dental bridge can be secured using dental implants.
- Dentures and Partials: Dentures can be used to replace a full arch of missing teeth. Partials can be used to replace either the top or bottom full arch of missing teeth. Traditionally, dentures and partials are removable appliances; however, patients have the option of securing their dentures or partials with dental implants.
- Dental Implants: Dental implants are one of the most natural looking, effective tooth replacement options of the market. Dental implants are a replica of your natural tooth root that is surgically implanted into the jaw bone. Dental implants also encourage natural bone growth and help stabilize the bite.
