Injuries, accidents, tooth decay and gingivitis can all result in missing teeth. When this happens, the experience is often traumatic, and the impact is long lasting, affecting your smile, confidence and even how you speak or chew. Replacing missing teeth not only helps you to look younger and more attractive, but it can prevent bone loss in the jaw, helping you to maintain the integrity and placement of surrounding teeth and the health of your teeth, gums, and mouth.
At Oso Marguerite Dental, we offer several options for replacing missing teeth. They include dental implants, fixed bridges, removable bridges and dentures. After a thorough examination of your mouth, our professional team will work with you and make treatment recommendations based on your individual situation, budget and the location of the missing tooth or teeth.
Missing teeth are not things you have to live with. With modern dental innovations and the guidance of a knowledgeable dentist, you can renew your smile, keeping it healthy and attractive.

Frequently Asked Questions
I am missing several teeth. What is the best way to replace them?
The best way to replace your missing teeth depends on your personal goals, preferences, and budget. Options include implants, a fixed dental bridge, dentures, and partials. Each option offers distinct advantages. The professionals at Oso Marguerite Dental would be happy to discuss your options and make recommendations as to which is best for you.
What are some of the advantages of dental implants?
Dental implants look and feel much like your natural teeth. As they are not removable, you do not have to worry about taking them out at night for care. Implants are also very durable and can last a lifetime with proper care. This means less time in the dental chair for replacements or adjustments and cost savings over time versus other tooth replacement options.
Why is it even necessary to replace missing teeth?
In addition to the cosmetic benefits of replacing missing teeth, making the decision to seek treatment offers many advantages. They include preventing your remaining teeth from becoming misaligned which can result in grinding, abnormal wear, TMJ, breaking or chipping of existing teeth and bone loss in the jaw.
