Although bridges can be a great solution to missing teeth, if you want a replacement tooth that looks and feels just like your missing tooth, consider a dental implant. A dental implant is an option to replace a missing tooth. Once the implant is firmly set in the mouth, the dentist then works to attach the replacement tooth. This permanent solution has the advantages over bridge work that it does not stress the surrounding teeth for support.

We offer nitrous oxide and conscious sedation.

Replacing a missing tooth quickly is essential to preserving the integrity of the surrounding teeth.

Implants can also be used as support as part of an implant bridge, and dentures. This is an alternative to partial dentures, and has several advantages. Dr. Toups provides the latest in traditional implants like,

Zimmer dental and 3M™ MDI mini dental implants to provide the

best fit within the patient's budget and needs.

First, there is no adjustment period to acclimatize the patient who, once the work is done, only feels teeth, not metal supports intruding into the mouth.   Second, this slows the bone loss occasioned by missing teeth. Third, there is no discomfort or difficulty in eating.
