Do you have missing teeth?
Even “just one” missing tooth can have a detrimental effect on your long term oral health is it is not replaced in a timely manner. Missing teeth can put remaining teeth at an increased risk for decay, damage and even shifting position. When a tooth is lost, it also affects the integrity of the bone in the jaw where a healthy tooth root once stimulated bone growth and helped to maintain the shape of your jaw.

Our personalized, consultative approach to your dental care means that your treatment plan will be tailored to your needs, cosmetic goals and budget.
