If you haven’t been to the dentist in a long time, it can be a daunting task scheduling that first appointment. Even if you’ve done your best to keep your mouth clean, gradual buildup over time can create dental problems that only an experienced dentist can solve. If the march of time has worn away your teeth, restorative dentistry from Todd A. Franklin can repair your smile to its former glory.

While most people consider missing teeth to be undesirable, not everyone realizes the health risks associated with losing an adult tooth. All of your teeth work together to provide stability for chewing. So when you lose a tooth, the gap in your smile can actually increase your vulnerability to gum disease and create uneven stress on the rest of your teeth. That’s why it’s smart to have missing teeth replaced as soon as possible.

Restorative dentistry from Todd A. Franklin in Lodi, California can fill the gaps in your smile. We may recommend dental implants, which provide a long-lasting solution to missing teeth. If you have more than one missing tooth, a dental bridge can replace multiple teeth. The friendly team of expert professionals at our Lodi office is here to help you make your teeth great again, so you can smile with confidence.

When you’re ready to return to the dentist, schedule an appointment with Todd A. Franklin, DDS. To learn more about all the ways we can renew your smile with restorative dentistry or request an appointment, contact our caring team today!
