If you have lost a tooth, you know it can take a toll on your comfort, appearance, and self-esteem. Depending on the location of the lost tooth, you may have to shift food around in your mouth to find a comfortable way to eat. Worse yet, you’ve lost your ability to interact confidently when you’re around others.
As challenging as tooth loss can be, it’s good to know that you have options when it comes to replacement. Today we use state-of-the-art dental implants and high-quality dentures and partials to restore your comfort, your appearance, and your confidence.
Dentures – A Time-Tested Solution
Millions have benefitted from full and partial dentures because they work so well for so many people. And the design and fit of modern dentures have done away with many of the problems that people tend to associate with wearing dentures.
Full dentures are used when all your teeth are missing. But if you only have one or two missing teeth, a removable partial denture can be customized to fit in and around existing teeth. Dentures today benefit from advances in technology and materials that allow us to create a prosthetic that looks, fits, and functions as much like natural teeth as possible.
State-of-the-Art Dental Implants
If you are interested in a more permanent solution, you might want to consider a dental implant. Implants are unique because they are rooted in your jaw bone and become part of your dental anatomy. The implant is the foundation to which we attach a restoration (the visible, functioning part of your tooth) such as a ceramic crown, bridge, or partial denture.
