Not many years ago, losing a tooth left you with few options for replacement. While permanent teeth should provide a lifetime of function, it does not always end up that way. They may be lost from an accident, deep cavities, or gum disease. Since teeth start as a full set, even one missing tooth may disrupt the complex function of chewing, the first step in digestion. As teeth slowly lean and migrate into extra spaces, wear and cracking from excessive forces often create escalating problems.
When it is time to replace missing teeth, whether it is one or a full set, several options might be available to you. Dental implants often give you the best opportunity to enjoy normal chewing and a full smile, but several other replacement directions exist also.
We know it is not always easy for you to sort through the complicated possibilities. Drs. Cohen and Patel's extensive background and commitment to comprehensive restorative dentistry allow them to develop a predictable solution for every and all scenarios.

Dental bridges have traditionally been a top choice for replacing missing teeth. With the widespread use of dental implants, more options are now available to bridge gaps in your smile. Esthetic, customized porcelains engineered into a bridge eliminate spaces of every size.
Sometimes a removable appliance is the best way to replace missing teeth. Whether a partial denture or a complete denture would restore your mouth to more optimal function and appearance, there is a design that will work for you.
