Not many years ago, losing a tooth left you with few options. 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 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/or migrate into the newly empty space, the new contours create excessive wear and cracking, resulting in escalating problems.
When it’s time to replace missing teeth - whether it’s one, or a full set - several options are available. Dental implants often give you the best opportunity to enjoy normal chewing and a full smile, although all therapeutic possibilities deserve consideration.
We know it's not always easy for you to sort through all the complicated possibilities, but you can count on Dr. Lawson’s background in restorative dentistry to help you find the perfect to solution for your specific needs.
