Do you have a missing tooth?

At Clarkson Dental Group, we offer various tooth replacement types to restore your beautiful smile. And Dr. Scott Mahlin, your Chesterfield, MO dentist, can help you choose the best option for your needs and cosmetic goals.

Tooth Replacement Options in Chesterfield, MO

We start you with a consultation to learn more about your goals and budget. If you're a candidate for tooth replacement, you may prefer a fixed option, which is popular with most patients. These fixed options include a bridge or a dental implant.

Dental Implants for a Natural Look and Feel 

Dental implants are artificial tooth roots surgically placed in the jaw. When this new root integrates into the bone, we cap it with a dental crown. We can also use a few implants to secure a fixed denture. Because it is a full-anatomy replacement, it looks and feels like a natural tooth.

Close the Gap in Your Smile with a Dental Bridge

A dental bridge closes the gap in your smile by connecting restoring teeth to healthy teeth with dental crowns.

Partial Dentures for a Removable Option

A partial is not permanently attached to adjacent teeth or supporting tooth structures. Instead, it has retentive clasps or grooves that help hold it in place. It is normal to have discomfort with a partial, specifically during the first few weeks. In addition, patients often complain that it is bulky and cumbersome.
