What Options Do You Offer to Replace a Missing Tooth?

In this video, Dr. Victor Apel, a renowned Melbourne implant dentist, explains the different treatment solutions our office provides to replace missing teeth in as little as one day.

A lot of people ask, what are options for replacing a missing tooth? Well, there are many options from removables to fixed bridge work, but those have a tendency to damage adjacent teeth. What we found works is a mini implant just to replace a single tooth. You’ll notice right in here, the implant is placed into the bone, which becomes the artificial root, and the crown is actually cemented in place. And it looks just as natural as the adjacent teeth. So if you’re struggling with a flipper or some kind of removable prosthetics, give our office a call. Come in for a free consultation so we can show you how to be you again.

If you or someone you love is struggling with a missing tooth, contact Dr. Victor C. Apel at Designing Smiles Dentistry in Melbourne, FL, to learn how life-changing treatments like mini dental implants can enhance your smile, improve your function, and restore your self-confidence.



Dr. Apel has been in practice in Melbourne since 1988. Originally from Louisville, Kentucky, he graduated from the University of Louisville’s School of Dental Medicine, a facility for training physicians and dentists. He maintained a successful private practice in Louisville for five years, but Florida’s pleasant climate and the promise of year-round outside activities brought the Apels to the sunshine state.

Dr. Apel is a member in good standing with the American Dental Association, the Florida Dental Association, the Brevard County Dental Society, the International Academy of Mini Dental Implants, and recently earned his fellowship with the International Dental Implant Association. He also maintains ongoing professional relationships with recognized researchers and clinicians.

Dr. Apel is dedicated to providing you with the latest proven treatment methods, participates regularly in courses and seminars and is now a Mini Implant Center of America (MDICA) providing you with revolutionary benefits of mini dental implant dentistry.
