Missing Teeth

The loss of just a single tooth can set a course that can destroy an entire mouth. Teeth will drift and tip into a space that is created by missing teeth. Just like two gears of a car that are not properly aligned, pretty soon you've got a whole lot of problems.

One of the options would be an implant. This is the replacement of a tooth with a false root that is surgically placed. It is then followed by the careful construction of a crown to replace the missing tooth, to prevent teeth from shifting and thereby causing further tooth loss.

A bridge uses crowns on otherwise healthy opposing teeth across the gap of the missing tooth. These crowns support a "pontic" (artificial tooth) and will support both chewing and normal jawline structure.
