Can you replace my missing teeth?
If you have missing teeth and live in the Des Moines area, we offer a number of tooth replacement options to meet your needs. Every patient is different, which is why Dr. Trung Phan never makes blanket recommendations, but rather presents all of your options and helps you make a choice that works well for your lifestyle and smile.
Here are some of the ways we replace missing teeth:
Dental bridges – Dental bridges suspend an artificial tooth in place using two specific types of dental crowns. Dental bridges match your smile and last many years if you take care of them. Dental bridges work best for one or two missing teeth while dental implant bridges can replace more teeth at once.
Dental implants – Dental implants are the gold standard of teeth replacement technologies. When you take care of them, they can last a lifetime. They help to preserve bone and also allow for an unrestricted diet.
Dentures and partial dentures – If you have numerous missing teeth, or you are missing all of your teeth, partial or complete dentures provide a solution that looks great and is more affordable than single dental implants. We also offer implant-retained dentures for added security.
