Trauma, old age, and premature decay can lead to missing teeth. A lot of our patients who lose a tooth are embarrassed by it. Even major tooth loss can be treated, though.
Depending on the extent of your tooth loss, there are three common treatment options: dentures, bridges, and dental implants.
If you’re missing teeth, Dr. Philley will work with you to determine the best treatment option for you. Contact us today to schedule your first appointment.903-581-0581 Contact Us
Dental implants are reasonably new. They’re an advanced treatment that Dr. Philley offers.
A tooth implant is great if you’re missing a single tooth or a few teeth that aren’t side-by-side. They’re also frequently used to support removable partial dentures.
Dental implants recreate the entire tooth structure, root and all. They’re an excellent therapy: they feel real, they act real, and they’re long-lasting.

Dentures have been around a long time, and full or partial dentures are a great solution for advanced tooth loss.
Tooth loss can occur for a lot of reasons, and if you’ve experienced advanced tooth loss your dentist may recommend dentures. They’re great if whole rows or all of your teeth are missing.
Full and partial dentures are a type of prosthetic. Most of the time partial dentures are held in place by clips, but implant-supported dentures are becoming a more common method.
Full dentures are built on a plate that’s fitted to your mouth. Adhesive keeps them in place.
A lot of clients worry that their dentures will look unnatural. Dentures have come a long way in the last few decades, though.
Not only are dentures more comfortable, but we’re also able to make them look more natural. We match the shade and shape of them to any existing teeth. After you become accustomed to your new dentures, even you might not be able to tell the difference.
