Are you looking for a tooth replacement service to enjoy your smile again? If so, you have come to the right place! If you have lost a tooth, or are scheduled for a tooth extraction in the near future, it is imperative to have a replacement set in your mouth as soon as possible. Leaving an empty void in your mouth can cause various oral health issues including bacteria buildup and potential movement of other teeth changing your alignment. Replacing your missing teeth doesn’t have to be a stressful event, but there are a few options you need to consider.

Dentures are popular because they are easily removable. Not only can they be removed easily, but they can be replaced and inserted with little service necessary to the rest of your smile. They are normally held in place by a strong bonding material.

Dental implants are not removable but are extremely durable and strong which can last for an entire lifetime. They are directly inserted into the jawbone for a lasting hold that won’t give way. They most effectively reflect the natural function of teeth with their ability to hold the tightest.

Dental bridges can be used when a patient’s jaw is not strong enough to hold dental implants. In that case, a dental bridge can be inserted into the void left by a missing tooth and connected directly to other teeth in their smile. With the gap between teeth “bridged” by the assistance of a dental bridge, your mouth can return to its fullest once more.
