When you have missing teeth, an alternative solution to dentures is dental implants. While dentures are removable, dental implants provide permanent new teeth to restore your mouth’s function and appearance. Dental implants tend to offer a successful and lasting solution to the loss of some or all of your teeth.

Porcelain Crowns & Bridges
Porcelain crowns and bridges are great dental solutions if you are missing a single tooth or if you have many missing teeth. A missing tooth can not only affect your smile but also your bite and oral health. At Roger E. Pardon, D.D.S., we offer dental bridges and crowns to restore function and appearance to your smile. Dental bridges can support one missing tooth or several and rely on your existing healthy teeth to support them.
Inlay & Onlays
Dental inlays and onlays are considered a conservative method of treating damaged teeth. They are used instead of placing a crown. Some dentists even use inlays and onlays to treat tooth decay. Instead of filling in the tooth, your dentist may use dental inlays and onlays. Dental inlays and onlays are made in a dental lab and then fitted to your tooth. They are then bonded to your tooth.
Removable Partial Dentures
A removable partial denture is an optimal solution for patients who may be missing one or more teeth in a particular area of the mouth. Removable partial dentures are attached to a gum-colored base which may have a metal framework in place to hold it in place against the surrounding teeth. These dentures work to replace missing teeth, restore functionality, and improve oral health that may have been previously compromised by missing teeth. When a tooth is lost and the gap is left unfilled, the neighboring teeth may begin to shift significantly. This can alter your bite and may even result in long-term damage to your gums and jaw.
