The preferred method of replacing a missing tooth is with an implant. Replacing a missing tooth is essential to avoid over-eruption, where by the tooth on the opposing side loses its natural structure needed to hold it in place. This leaves room for the opposing tooth to slide into the void created from the missing tooth, thereby altering your bite and exposing the healthy tooth’s root. An implant is recommended over a bridge when possible because it integrates into jaw and does not disturb the surrounding teeth. Full restoration typically requires 3 months of healing time, and can last last a lifetime.

Dentures provide a solution to replace missing teeth. They are aesthetically pleasing and improve your ability to eat and speak. Dentures are formed by creating a custom fit gum-colored resin that sits on your gums and holds the replacement teeth creating a natural bite and restoring natural function. Creating a proper and comfortable fit is a process by which we will adjust the dentures to ensure they function similar to natural teeth and are aesthetically pleasing to regain a healthy smile.

A complete replacement tooth is known as an implant crown, and is attached to an implant with a connector called an abutment. We will design a custom fitting tooth that matches the color of your teeth. The crown retains structural integrity by keeping opposing teeth in alignment and cosmetically helping restore confidence with a healthy and full smile.
Dental reconstruction likely requires collaboration with a team of health professionals outside of dentistry. We work hand in hand on your treatment and recovery to ensure you are cared for properly with your well being and overall satisfaction as a priority. Reconstruction is comprised of many facets, and we will work with you to identify the options available and communicating the plan step by step.
The alignment of your teeth is important for a proper bite. The way your upper and lower teeth rest when closed is known as occlusion. Malocclusion occurs when there is a misalignment of the bite and can be caused from a flaw in your mouth.

Common symptoms of malocclusion include:

Crowded teeth
overbite/underbite
Touching front teeth biting
Jaw muscle
Jaw joints
It is important to fix malocclusion before developing more serious dental and health issues. If we find cause for concern, we will work with you to find the right course of action. If you suspect malocclusion, come in as soon as possible so we can prevent further damage and properly restore your bite.

Implant supported dentures provide a more natural and comfortable solution for endentulous patients (those missing multiple teeth).  The dental implants will anchor the dentures into place allowing a secure fit. Dental implants allow the jaw bone to remain rather than slowly wane over time. Keeping a full and almost natural smile will rebuild your confidence and help you smile again.
