Patient Testimonials
  • Azalea Dental is, without a doubt, the best dentist office I have ever been to. The staff is professional, courteous, and very easy to talk to and work with. They have televisions on the ceiling for crying out loud (I'm a former Army guy, so anything beyond whiskey and a stick to squeeze is good. Televisions on the ceiling is exceeding the standard).

What are my choices for replacing a missing tooth?

It used to be that choices for replacing a missing tooth were limited. But today we offer a variety of tooth replacement solutions to fit every need.

Without a doubt, dental implants are at the top of the list of options. There are many reasons for this. Dental implants are the replacement that acts, works, and looks most like a natural tooth.

Unlike other replacement options that rely on neighboring teeth for support, implants are completely freestanding. This is possible because they are secured directly into your jaw with a small titanium replacement root. Implants are durable and have been used for decades so you know they’re safe.

A dental bridge is another option to consider if you’re just missing one or two teeth. A bridge is an artificial tooth that’s attached to the natural teeth adjacent to the empty space. Bridges solve the cosmetic problem of the missing space and can also be secured in place with a dental implant.

Partial dentures have been and continue to be an excellent option for tooth replacement. Partials are appropriate when several teeth are missing. They’re similar to full dentures but have the added advantage of clipping securely onto your natural teeth for support.

If you’re wondering which of these options may be appropriate for you, please contact our Summerville office. We will be happy to arrange a consultation with Dr. Riley to discuss your needs.
