Most people will lose teeth throughout their lifetime, with an estimated 30% of people ages 65 to 74 with no teeth at all. At Carrington Square Dental, we strive to help our patients do everything possible to retain their natural teeth, but we understand that is not always possible. Our dental team offers restorative dentistry to replace missing teeth, whether it is one, several or your entire smile, at our dental center in Waxhaw, NC.
Missing teeth impact your health, appearance and confidence. Once a tooth is missing, there is a higher risk of oral health issues like gum disease, and the other teeth can begin to shift out of place. Bone loss is common once a tooth is gone, and the gaps can affect speech, chewing and other function. Replacing missing teeth can give you back your smile and improve your oral function, which can help you feel more confident in social and professional interactions.

Dentures are still very popular due to their availability and affordability for most people. Both partial and complete dentures are more comfortable and natural-appearing than ever. However, dental implants are a game changer when it comes to tooth replacement, offering the most functional and convenient option. Our team at Carrington Square Dental offers the following options in restorative dentistry:
Everyone is different and may be better suited to one restorative option over another. Our restorative dentists can discuss all the options available from dentures and dental bridges to dental implants to determine the best option for replacing your missing teeth.
