Do you have missing teeth? Have you been told that your teeth are hopeless and dentures are your only option?
Dr. Tom Trinkner is one of the leading dentists in Columbia, South Carolina for the treatment of complex dental problems like worn, broken and missing teeth. For nearly 30 years, Dr. Trinkner has been practicing advanced restorative and cosmetic dentistry techniques to rebuild patient’s smiles.
Treatment Options For Missing Teeth
There is no “one-size-fits-all” solution for missing teeth. Dr. Trinkner will assess your condition through a comprehensive evaluation and make recommendations for the best long term results. Our goal is to restore your smile to its natural function with optimal health and esthetics.
For many patients with missing teeth, Dental Implants will be the best option for the most lifelike replacement. Dental implants have one of the highest success rates compared to other dental restorations. Patients who have dental implants are able to enjoy a very high quality of life. Dental implants are virtually indistinguishable from natural teeth and are extremely long lasting.
If you are a candidate for dental implants, Dr. Trinkner will plan your dental implant treatment and coordinate the surgical placement with a local oral surgeon or periodontist. Once the implant has healed, you will return to our Columbia, SC dental office for the implant restoration performed by Dr. Trinkner.
A dental implant can be used to replace one or several missing teeth. In the case of a single missing tooth, the dental implant is restored with a single crown. For multiple missing teeth, Dr. Trinkner may fabricate a full or partial denture to restore the smile.
Dental Bridges & Partials
Depending on the location of your missing teeth and your health condition, Dr. Trinkner may recommend a dental bridge or partial denture. These restorations can be supported by a dental implant and/or a dental crown.
