If you have lost an adult tooth due to accident or neglect, there are solutions to help you restore that missing tooth. It is important to do so in order to maintain full function of your smile. One solution is to use a dental bridge. This means attaching a row of dental crowns (also known as a bridge) to the healthy teeth on either side of the missing one. While a great solution, bridges will cause healthy tooth enamel to be lost.
Another option is to use a dental implant. The implant will actually replace your missing tooth root in the jaw bone. We will attach a beautiful dental crown to the top of your implant to complete the restoration. The result will look and feel so natural that you might forget exactly which tooth was replaced!
