Do you need dentures, dental implants, or a dental bridge? If you have any lost or missing teeth or are scheduled for a tooth extraction in the near future, it is important to have a replacement pair on standby. Leaving an empty void in your mouth can cause many oral health issues including bacteria buildup and potential movement and slippage of other teeth.

Replacing your missing teeth doesn’t have to be a chore, but there are a few possibilities you need to consider:

– Dental bridges are wonderful artificial tooth replacements that are permanent and can fill the gap left behind by missing teeth, with various materials, often consisting of porcelain, to mimic the look and functionality of normal teeth. Bridges are held in place by linking onto nearby teeth and implants and are an excellent tooth replacement procedure if your jaw is not strong enough to support dental implants.

– Dentures are wonderful artificial tooth replacements that are both removable and temporary and can help replace the lost functionality of teeth. Dentures come be constructed as either partial dentures, which are used to replace a few missing teeth at a time, and complete dentures, which can be crafted to replace entire rows of teeth.

– Dental implants are wonderful artificial tooth replacements that are permanent and are drilled directly into the jawbone and are often regarded as the most effective treatment method for replacing teeth. Dental implants are extremely durable and can be constructed to an almost identical look and functionality of any teeth that have been lost.
