All of your teeth play an important role in speaking, chewing and in maintaining proper alignment of other teeth. Tooth loss doesn't necessarily have to occur as you age, but if you do lose teeth, they must be replaced to maintain proper function of your mouth. Fortunately, there are options for correcting tooth loss. When a single dental implant is not an option,a bridge attaches artificial teeth to adjacent natural teeth, called abutment teeth. Bridges are a non-removable restoration.
Transitioning to a denture, many times can represent great loss.You may feel regret or shame for having lost your original teeth. Difficulty eating favorite foods, sometimes gagging or a psychological rejection of the denture is common. Often times, there is a loss of social confidence due to the difficulty that is encountered with eating and speaking. It is not uncommon for dentures to shift at a key moment, making it something you can't always count on.

For the most precise aspects of restorative procedures, we use electric hand-pieces.
