Tooth Replacement

The loss of a tooth, especially a front tooth, can be an emotionally devastating experience. Gaps left when teeth are lost can cause drifting and tilting of adjacent teeth, which in turn can lead to decay, gum disease, and jaw problems.

What are the methods for replacing missing teeth?

The methods of replacing teeth are determined by the position of the gap, its size and the presence or absence of adjoining teeth. Missing teeth can be replaced with bridges, dental implants, partial or complete dentures.
