Sometimes injury or decay damages a tooth extensively. In certain cases, extraction is the proper treatment option to start you on the path toward complete dental health. Dr. Fenn can gently extract your troublesome tooth and can give you the treatment options for replacing that tooth and for completing your beautiful smile again.
Q: How can losing a back tooth affect my smile?
Q: What are my options for replacing a missing tooth?
A: By replacing missing teeth either with a bridge or an implant, you will alleviate the problems associated with missing a tooth and will restore your smile to its beautiful, full appearance. A bridge is one solution for replacing a tooth. By using neighboring teeth as the supportive structure, Dr. Fenn places a porcelain restoration into the vacant space, restoring the functionality and look of your smile. A dental implant is also an excellent solution. Dental implants involve the placement of a titanium post directly into the jawbone. Once the post has bonded to the bone, it can act as a new, solid support for a natural-looking, porcelain restoration. Implants can replace a single tooth, or an entire set of teeth, offering more function and permanence than traditional dentures.
