Tooth Replacement Options & Implant Dentistry
Losing a tooth can be painful, and the gap it leaves can make you embarrassed of your smile. At Grant Davis Gribble Dental, our experienced general dentists can help you understand your options for tooth replacement and help you restore the health and appearance of your smile.
Permanent Tooth Replacement Options
Keeping your natural teeth intact is always best. That’s why preventative dental care is so important. But if accident, injury or disease causes you to lose a tooth, you can replace a tooth with a natural-looking and permanent substitute—an implant.
Implant dentistry involves oral surgery. A natural-looking tooth attached to a titanium post is put in place of the missing tooth. Eventually, the bone will grow around the titanium “root,” keeping the implant firmly in place.
If you opt for permanent tooth replacement, it is important that you carefully choose your dentist. The dentists at Grant Davis Gribble Dental have years of experience with implant dentistry and oral surgery. We are always going through continuing education so that we can offer you the most advanced technology and modern dental procedures to ensure your safety and comfort. We also have an in-house lab to create your implant to minimize the time you have to wait to restore your full smile.
Removable Tooth Replacement Options
Not all tooth replacement options require oral surgery, and not all patients are ideal candidates for implant dentistry (usually because of jaw bone loss). That’s why we also offer bridges and removable prosthetics—full or partial dentures.
