How can I replace a missing tooth?

At Ringwood Family Dental, we completely understand that losing a tooth can feel like a traumatic experience. You will probably have concerns about eating and speaking once your tooth has been extracted. Most of all, you are probably concerned with how you will look. It makes sense because your smile is your calling card and one of the first things people notice about you.

We don’t just remove your tooth and then abandon you! We offer a wide variety of tooth replacement options and give our patients choices when it comes to their dental treatment.

Here are some ways you can complete your smile:

Dental implants – This is most effective way to replace a missing tooth. An implant mimics the root of your tooth and integrates with your bone to provide unsurpassed stability and function. You will have no dietary restrictions once your treatment is complete.

Fixed dental bridge – This works well for patients who have a missing tooth and want additional options. We use your adjacent teeth to secure an artificial tooth in place. A dental bridge will keep your remaining teeth from shifting; however, unlike dental implants, it will not prevent bone lass and requires some dietary restrictions.

Partial and complete dentures – We offer custom dentures to replace multiple missing teeth. We also offer implant-retained dentures for your convenience.
