There are many options available for replacement of missing teeth, but some may not be suitable to your individual condition or desires.  Some of the more common options are:

Fixed Bridgework

Removable Partial Dentures

Complete Dentures

Dental Implant Anchored Crowns, Bridges, or Dentures

The best way to help you make the right choice is a thorough examination by a doctor with special training in tooth replacement (a prosthodontist) who will take the time to listen, explore available options with you, and answer all of your questions.

Fixed Bridgework

Dr. Fox has special expertise in fixed bridgework, caps, and crowns.

His bridgework provides patients with comfortable, durable treatment which is both conducive to good oral health and has an incredibly natural appearance.

Removable Partial Dentures

posterior RPD.jpg (91028 bytes)Removable partial dentures are retained on the teeth with hooks or clasps. They must be removed for cleaning after eating, and while sleeping.  They can generally be placed without the need for surgery.  They can be inconvenient, may damage to teeth or gums in some people, and tend to be unstable.

When the teeth are properly prepared, and removable partial dentures are expertly made, they can be a viable alternative for many people.  For patients who are best served with removable partial dentures, we are pleased to offer this service. 

Complete Dentures

Making stable, comfortable, attractive complete dentures is becoming a lost art.  Many dentists prefer not to provide this service because it is difficult and time consuming when properly done.  While complete dentures have been supplanted in many cases by dental implants, dentures remain an option for the restoration of appearance and function for many adults.

Dr. Fox accepts the most difficult denture problems from the practices of his colleagues, and also helps people who call his office directly.

Dental Implants to Anchor Crowns, Bridges or Dentures

Dental Implants are small artificial replacements for missing roots.  Despite their small size, dental implants are incredibly strong and durable. They fuse directly to the jaw bone, locking solidly in place, while the overlying gum adapts to create a natural appearance.  Implants can be comfortably placed in our specially equipped dental office using local anesthesia.  Over 90% of patients only need ibuprofen for a few days after surgery to maintain complete comfort.

Dental implants provide the best foundation for new substitute teeth, anchoring them solidly to prevent movement, or loosening. This treatment is very successful in adult patients of all ages, including the elderly. Implants are the modern way to replace teeth lost from cavities, gum disease, or injuries.  When properly cared for dental implants are long lasting, and don't get cavities.

Implants are an excellent means of stopping dentures from loosening, slipping or sliding.

Mimicking the natural tooth root, implants can serve as the foundation for caps, crowns, or bridges which remain fixed in the mouth (just like natural teeth).
