Missing teeth can be embarrassing, but they can also contribute to severe oral health problems if not treated. Two of the most effective, comfortable and popular options for replacing missing teeth are dental implants and dental bridges.
If you suffer from one or more missing teeth, the Toronto and Barrie dentists at the Molson Park Dental Office can help you decide whether dental implants or a dental bridge is the best treatment option for your condition.
Dental implants are an attractive and long-lasting solution for missing teeth. Dental implants consist of a titanium implant post that acts as a replacement root and serves as the anchor for your dental crown which looks, feels and functions like a natural tooth.
With proper care, dental implants can provide permanent results. Although dental implants are an ideal tooth replacement choice for many patients with missing teeth, they are not for everyone.
Your consultation with one of our Barrie or Toronto implant dentists will determine if you’re a candidate for dental implants. For more information about dental implants, please learn about what to expect from dental implants.

The Consequences of Losing a Tooth
Losing a tooth as a child is not usually a big deal; lose a baby tooth and, before long, a new tooth will grow in to replace it. Our Barrie and Toronto dentists understand that things are very different when you’re an adult‒no natural replacement tooth is on the way. Everything in your mouth plays a vital role in its operation; you can’t lose a tooth without witnessing the repercussions, which include:
This is not a complete list, but it does capture exactly how important it is to replace any missing teeth. Don’t delay in seeing our dentists if you’ve lost a tooth.
