Our primary goal is to save and strengthen your natural teeth, but occasionally, tooth loss occurs. In decades past, extraction of diseased teeth was much more common, but the effects of it were found to be far worse.

Some options include rebuilding the root for a fully independent permanent structure using dental implants. We will present your options and create a treatment plan that is right for you.

Restoring Missing Teeth
We can restore missing teeth with a dental prosthetic. Prosthetics include a dental crown, bridge, partial denture, or full denture. The devices today come with a variety of options that can help them look more natural, feel more natural, and even stay permanently in place. Using a dental implant to rebuild the base of the missing tooth, we can even restore missing teeth in such a way that you will forget that you were ever even missing a tooth. This will help you resume chewing your normal diet, restore sounds in your speech, and provide you a beautiful smile.
