Missing teeth can be more than a source for self-consciousness. They can also create more dental health concerns, such as receding gums, bone loss and further tooth loss. As the gum tissue and bone recede from lack of use where the tooth had been, it weakens the support structure for the surrounding teeth, putting them at risk. No matter what your circumstances are, we have tooth replacement options available to meet your specific needs and budget.

Traditional dentures replace a full arch of teeth with an acrylic prosthesis that sits on top of the gums. Dentures are a removable solution that rely on pastes to hold them in place in the mouth while being worn. They closely resemble the look of natural teeth and gum tissues.Implant Supported Dentures
Implant supported dentures anchor a full-arch denture to dental implants that are strategically implanted into the gums. Unlike traditional dentures, implant supported dentures promote natural bone stimulation to maintain healthy bone levels, and are a non-removable full-arch replacement solution.Dental Implants
Dental implants are a permanent tooth replacement solution for one to all of your teeth. They use a titanium post that implants into the bone to provide a supporting structure for a dental crown that connects via an abutment above the gum line.Dental Bridges
A dental bridge is a combination of dental crowns that are cemented onto surrounding teeth to hold a pontic, or artificial tooth, in the gap between them. This solution may be used to replace one or a group of missing teeth.
