At Parker & Pennington Dentistry, we believe that each patient deserves teeth that are fully functional. Patients who have experienced tooth loss or deal with recurring decay often struggle with their daily lives. It can be difficult to eat, and food choices are often limited. We encourage patients to replace their missing teeth or damaged teeth as soon as possible. We work with our patients to create a treatment plan that will not only restore their oral health, but will last for years. When meeting with our patients, we look at many factors when recommending a treatment plan.
Are you missing teeth, or have you learned you need to choose a tooth replacement option and are struggling to make a choice? At Parker & Pennington Dentistry, we want you to know that your long-term health will always be your best investment. We see many patients who have experienced issues with their teeth for years and have postponed or delayed properly caring for their oral health. We have patients who ask if we recommend a tooth be replaced, especially if it is in the back of the mouth or it is an older patient. Our response is always the same — your teeth, no matter which ones, should always be replaced.
At Parker & Pennington Dentistry, we want to help set our patients up for oral health success. We know that our patients have a wide range of emotions when dealing with tooth loss and the need to determine a tooth replacement option. Although we typically recommend dental implants to our patients, we know that it is not always feasible for everyone. Some patients are not eligible for implants, and others don’t want to go through the surgery and steps involved to complete implant treatment. For these patients, we always recommend dentures. The dentures we provide to our patients are unlike others you may have seen in the past.
Do you have missing teeth? We know that it can be heartbreaking when a permanent tooth needs to be extracted or has fallen out. There are many reasons that a person might be missing teeth. It can be from tooth decay, an accident or other trauma, medication, a medical issue, or family history. No matter if you are missing one tooth or multiple teeth, we have a variety of options that can restore your self-confidence and help you love your smile once again.
