Have you suffered catastrophic tooth loss and are left with missing teeth? Are there gaping holes in between your teeth that must be filled? If missing teeth go unreplaced, the holes left behind can destabilize gums and cause nearby teeth to move and change position. Protect your mouth with a variety of tooth replacement options.

If you are looking for a tooth replacement therapy that is removable, dentures are a suitable choice. Partial dentures can be used for a few missing teeth whereas complete dentures can be used to replace entire rows of teeth. Dentures can mimic the look and function of natural teeth and be easily removed for cleaning every night.

If you are looking for a tooth replacement therapy that is permanent, dental implants are a suitable choice. Dental implants are extremely durable and designed to be connected directly to the jawbone. Thus, a person must have a strong jawbone for dental implants to be installed. With the proper care, dental implants can last a lifetime.

If you are looking for a tooth replacement therapy that is permanent, dental bridges are also a suitable choice. Although dental bridges are not connected to your jawbone, they still can have an incredible durability as they are connected to nearby and neighboring teeth. Even dental implants can be used for dental bridges to latch onto.
