Tooth Replacement 

Not many years ago, losing a tooth left you with few options for replacement.  While permanent teeth should provide a lifetime of function, it doesn’t always end up that way. They may be lost from an accident, deep cavities, or gum disease.  And since teeth come 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’s time to replace missing teeth, whether it’s 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 directions might be considered.

We know it's not always easy for you to sort through the complicated possibilities. Dr. Weaver's background in restorative dentistry allows her to develop solutions for every scenario.
