Replace Missing Teeth!

Every year, millions of people lose teeth to accidents and injuries, to oral health issues, and to waiting too long to seek dental care. We want you to know that we aren’t judging, just stating some reasons you may be missing multiple teeth.

Regardless of why your teeth have been lost, both of our Dr. Mosses and the rest of our team want to help you get your smile back on track. We have several tools that could help make that happen.

▪︎ Dental implants are where it begins. Implants can replace the roots of your missing and lost teeth. Implants are placed directly into your jawbone. These serve as anchors for the other part of your replacement teeth.

▪︎ Dentures are an OK solution, but implant-supported dentures offer greater stability and strength. With dental implants as your foundation, your dentures won’t just look like replacement teeth. Your dentures can function almost as well as real teeth, too.

Imagine being about to order whatever you want the next you dine out because you are confident that your dentures will stay in place.

▪︎ Dental bridges are perfect for replacing a few teeth. If you still have some natural teeth, you can place a dental bridge on a couple dental implants. This will restore your smile and allow you to eat the foods that you really want to eat again.


Replace A Lost Tooth!

Believe it not, the average American (20 to 64 years old) is missing three teeth, so the odds are higher than you might think that you are missing at least one tooth.

Replacing that missing tooth may not seem like a big deal at first, but it doing so could help to protect the remaining teeth you have left.

At the Moss dental practice, you can get a dental implant and a dental crown to create a total tooth replacement. Together, the implant and crown provide support that could help to keep your remaining teeth in place.

As another option, you could get a traditional dental bridge as well. This kind of bridge is supported by reshaping two teeth (the ones on either side of your missing tooth) into abutment. This allows us to bond the bridge in place, where it can fill in the gap in your smile.

At the same time, it will restore the function of your missing tooth as well.

Fix A Broken Tooth!

Broken teeth can happen all of a sudden. You are playing basketball when you get hit in the face with a ball or an elbow. You are watching a movie when you bite too hard into an unpopped kernel and crack one of your teeth.

Or maybe you just got distracted while walking down the street and bumped into a pole.

In all of those situations — and many more — a dental crown can help.

All we have to do is reshape your tooth to remove the broken, cracked, or damaged place. This again creates an abutment. This time it will support a dental crown.

Thanks to modern dental materials, your dental crown can feel, function, and look just like a natural tooth.

Repair A Decayed Tooth!

Tooth decay remains one of the most prevalent oral health issues, but it can be fixed without compromising your smile.

Tooth-colored dental fillings can restore the shape and size of your teeth, without being a distraction like metal fillings can be. For larger cavities, a dental crown may be in order.
