All of your teeth play an important role in speaking, chewing and in maintaining proper alignment of other teeth. Tooth loss doesn’t necessarily have to occur as you age, but if you do lose teeth they must be replaced to maintain proper function of your mouth. Fortunately, there are options for correcting tooth loss. A dental bridge — a device used to replace missing teeth — attaches artificial teeth to adjacent natural teeth, called abutment teeth. Bridges are either permanently attached (fixed bridges), or they can be removable.

We Are Excited To Offer The Following "In Office Dental Plan" To Patients Who Do Not Have Dental Insurance! Benefits of our Dental Plan Include: Membership Benefits: Memberships start at $235 "The Fine print" This is a dental discount plan and is NOT dental insurance. It CANNOT be combined with any other dental insurance. It is good ONLY at Jeffery W. Smith, DDS. Therefore to a specialist, they will NOT offer this disount.
Dr. Smith is proud to offer the latest technology available for periodontal therapy: laser treatment. There are numerous advantages to using laser therapy as opposed to the traditional methods requiring a scalpel and sutures. Comfort: With laser treatment, there is reduced or no bleeding, minimized swelling, no charring, and no drill noise or vibration. The stress and anxiety often associated with dental work is therefore eliminated when you experience quick, effective, and essentially pain-free laser procedures. Also, postoperative sensitivity is greatly limited by laser dentistry, and recovery time is much quicker than with traditional methods.
