If you suffer discomfort from ill-fitting dentures or have several missing teeth, The Tooth Doc offers the ultimate solution to replicate the form and function of your healthy, natural smile: dental implants. This technology has several advantages when compared to traditional dentures and provides you the opportunity to live your life to the fullest.
Implants work so well because they replicate your natural bite by serving as a substitute for your teeth’s natural roots, promoting bone retention. Once they are placed, your bone will fuse with them, creating an impeccably sturdy foundation. Additionally, because dental implants are fixed, you’ll never experience dentures that slip around the mouth, causing sores and other ailments.

Q: What are my options to replace a missing tooth?
A: By replacing missing teeth either with a bridge or implant, you will alleviate the problems associated with missing a tooth and will restore your smile to its beautiful, full appearance. A bridge is one solution for replacing a tooth. By using neighboring teeth as the supportive structure, your dentist at The Tooth Doc will place a porcelain restoration into the vacant space, restoring the functionality and look of your smile. A dental implant is also an excellent solution. Dental implants involve the placement of a titanium post directly into the jawbone. Once the post has bonded to the bone, it can act as a new, solid support for a natural-looking, porcelain restoration. Implants can replace a single tooth, or an entire set of teeth, offering more function and permanence than traditional dentures.
