A full, bright smile is one of your greatest assets. If you’re missing a tooth due to injury or decay, it’s important to address it as soon as possible. Even if you’re not concerned about cosmetics, having a full set of teeth is essential to maintaining good oral health. Unaddressed, missing teeth can result in bone loss in your jaw or cause your remaining teeth to shift to fill in the gaps, leaving you with further complications from a misaligned bite.

Fortunately, you have several options to help optimize your oral health and restore your smile and your confidence. Here are some of the best options to replace your missing teeth.
