Few people realize that missing teeth cause a chain reaction that can lead to other problems. The teeth around a missing tooth or set of missing teeth will begin to shift, giving food more places to hide and cause cavities, and you can experience problems eating and speaking normally. Eventually, more teeth may fall out as a result of a single missing tooth.

That’s why it’s so important to explore tooth replacement options such as crown and bridge, dentures and partials, and dental implants. Havens Family Dental can help you decide which tooth replacement option is right for you

DIAGNOdent is our cavity-detecting laser. We can use it to scan your teeth to look for decay and weak spots, and this means earlier detection of oral health problems as well as not having to use the traditional dental hook to inspect each tooth.​

Most certainly. We love seeing patients of any age receive the dental care they deserve to create a smile they can enjoy. Should it be necessary, we can refer you or your children to a specialist such as a periodontist, pedodontist (children’s dentist), or orthodontist if serious complications arise. However, you will find that our preventive, restorative, prosthetic, and cosmetic dental services include treatments for patients of all ages.​

Crowns & Bridges

Choosing between an implant and a bridge may be confusing. In cases of missing teeth there are a few options either Dental Bridges or Dental Implants. Here are the differences between each to have options for you to consider. A bridge is a tooth replacement, that is held in place by two adjacent teeth. The two teeth on each side of the gap are shaved down to fit the bridge over each tooth. A cap is then placed on the natural teeth on either side of the replacement tooth which is filled with a cap. Typical time to complete a bridge is two office visits. A dental implant unlike a dental bridge has no effect on the adjacent teeth.  A dental implant is a mimic of a complete tooth structure. A dental implant is a titanium piece the “root” that is surgically placed into the jawbone. After a few months of healing and bone growth around the implant a crown is then screwed onto the implant. Dental Implants do not decay and can last a lifetime as to dental bridges typically last ten to twenty years.

Dental Implants

Depending on everyone’s individual case the typical time to finish a dental implant is a four to six-month period which includes the placement of the crown.

Great advantages of dental implants are easier eating, improved appearance, improved oral health, improved self-esteem and improve comfort.  Dental implant prevent bone lose, which can occur shortly after losing a tooth. An implant is made of titanium which allows the remaining bone in the jaw to grow around it is making it bio-compatible, which is not reject by the body and is non-toxic. Missing teeth can cause the teeth surrounding it to become fragile, high risk for tooth decay and shifting towards the gap. The advantage of implant placement can help keep teeth in line, with unwanted bone lose which can cause premature again and facial sagging.
