As your bite changes it may difficulty in chewing, damage to your jaw, cause other teeth to shift and extrude out of socket, and also makes it harder to clean teeth, resulting in tooth decay and periodontal diseases. That is why it is critical to seek a restorations, teeth repair, and dental bridges from our Marlton dental office to ensure your teeth and mouth maintain their proper function, form, health, and beauty.

Removable bridges and dentures may be the first thing you think of when considering replacing missing teeth. There a complete dentures which replace all the teeth, or partial dentures which fill in the spaces created by missing teeth, preventing other teeth from changing positions. If receiving complete dentures, they will be inserted immediately after the removal of any remaining teeth at our Marlton dental office. This ensures the wearer does not have to be without teeth during the healing process.
