Tooth Replacement

Dental Bridge

One very popular tooth replacement solution is a dental bridge, which replaces a missing tooth by "bridging" the space. Typically, it consists of two crowns that are attached to existing teeth with a pontic (false tooth) in the middle. Porcelain and porcelain fused to high noble metals are the two major types of materials used.

Dentures and Partials

Another tooth replacement option is using a removable appliance such as dentures or partial dentures. We can fabricate dentures in three to five appointments, depending upon the type of denture recommended. We take impressions of your dentition and measure your jaw function prior to fabrication so the fit is as close to natural as possible.

If your dentures become loose, we can reline them either on the same day you call or within 24 hours. Remember: just as your teeth need regular checkups for optimum functioning, so do your dentures.

Dental Implants

With dental implants you can again have a naturally beautiful, confident smile. A dental implant is a small titanium pin or cylinder, which is surgically placed in the upper or lower jawbone. The dental implant replaces the root of the missing tooth, providing an anchor for your new tooth/teeth. When people need a tooth replacement, they often choose dental implants over other procedures because the result is a natural appearance with more permanent function.

In addition to looking and feeling like real teeth, dental implants allow you to:

  • Improve your smile
  • Eat the foods you enjoy
  • Speak with greater ease
  • Preserve dental bone
  • Restore your facial structure
  • Enjoy an active lifestyle

Recent innovations in dental implant technology have greatly improved dental implant procedures and dramatically improved the success rate of dental implants to more than 98 percent.

We perform a complete exam using x-rays to determine if dental implants are right for you. Once your specific needs are assessed, you can schedule an appointment for a consultation where we'll discuss your options and decide which treatment plan is best for you.

Regardless of whether you have tooth replacement for one or several teeth, caring for your dental implants is critical. Regular cleaning—by brushing, flossing and rinsing—is essential. Dental implants require routine visits with us just as your natural teeth do.
