With school starting, you and your family will likely have much busier schedules. Which is why we urge families in Kahoka, MO, to schedule a back-to-school visit, so we can examine smiles and ensure children start classes with bright teeth and healthy gums. What happens during your child’s visit? What preventive treatment options can we offer to protect little smiles?
For some patients, a dental bridge or a single tooth dental implant could be enough to return smiles to optimal health, beauty, and function. However, if a Kahoka, MO, patient loses a significant number of natural teeth, this could mean a more substantial prosthetic is required. Fortunately, we offer custom and lifelike full and partial dentures.
Often, a dental bridge is secured with crowns, which must be placed on surrounding teeth to anchor the new ones in place. But what if instead, we secured them with advanced implant dentistry? Not only will your new teeth last longer, but you don’t have to lose healthy tooth structure from surrounding teeth. Find out how your Kahoka, MO, dentist addresses tooth loss.
