Replacing Missing Teeth
Missing teeth often lead to other dental concerns as remaining teeth shift and the health of the gums is affected. Replacing missing teeth prevents the deterioration of the jaw, teeth, and gums.
Patients with missing teeth are susceptible to bone loss. Bone deterioration compromises the alignment and health of teeth and gums. As the bone deteriorates, the face can begin to look sunken in as the jaw line collapses.

Dentures & Partials What to Expect
Your oral health, cosmetic goals, the progression of bone loss, and budget are all considered when choosing a replacement option for missing teeth. A thorough dental exam will help determine the best treatment option available to restore your oral health. The procedure for your denture will vary depending on the style of denture you and your dentist choose.
Types of Dentures
- Traditional Denture
Your denture will be created using digital imaging and dental molds. The impressions are used to by a dental lab to fabricate the custom denture. Your denture will be designed to fit the mouth securely. Modern dentures are created to look and feel more like natural teeth and offer a more stable bite and improved function.
- Implant Secured Dentures
Many patients may choose to secure their denture using dental implants. Dental implants are surgically implanted into the jaw, creating a more stable oral foundation for long term oral health. Dental implants prevent bone deterioration and hold the denture in place for a more stable bite.
