All of your teeth play an important role in your life, but unfortunately there are times when a tooth has to be removed.  Most people take for granted the work our natural teeth perform until we are faced with potential tooth loss.  For many people, it’s not until they actually have a missing tooth that they realize the tremendous value of healthy teeth and how much they affect our chewing, confidence and appearance. (The teeth in the back of your mouth do, in fact, affect your appearance as well.)  We all know it’s easier to avoid tooth loss all together with proper preventive care.  But just because you have a missing tooth does not mean that you have to continue to live that way!  There are many ways to replace a missing tooth.  The most comfortable and permanent replacement is a dental implant but you may also consider bridges and removable appliances as an alternative.  Please visit our website at for more information.
