Do you have missing teeth? If so, our dentist, Dr. Wilford Samson, encourages you to replace them. This is because having gaps in the smile can cause alignment and dental issues. It’s best to fill the gaps quickly so you don’t suffer the consequences. When you schedule an appointment with our team and come into our office, we will be happy to see if one of these treatments is right for you:

-A dental bridge (A dental bridge is a long-lasting restoration that is made of a false tooth and two dental crowns. The bridge is anchored into place by the crowns because they cover the natural teeth on both sides of the missing tooth. The false tooth fills the space in the smile.)

-A dental implant (A dental implant is both a replacement tooth and its root. It is made of a titanium post (that is inserted into the jawbone), an attachment piece (that holds the replacement tooth), and a dental crown (that fills the gap between the teeth).)

-Dentures (There are two different types of dentures: Complete and partial dentures. Complete dentures replace all your teeth while partial dentures replace a few missing teeth in a row.)
