Treatments for Missing Teeth
At Dental Oasis of Orange County, we offer numerous solutions to help patients achieve a full smile. Not everyone has the same amount of teeth missing, just as everyone’s budget may be different.
Regardless of how many teeth you need to replace, we have a variety of options available to suit your needs. Not everyone’s situation is the same, and therefore not every opportunity is right for that particular patient.
With an exam by our dentist, Dr. Toorani, we will asses the condition of your remaining teeth and gums to create a unique plan that works well for you. Take a look at the dental services we offer for missing teeth.
Replacing One Tooth
Losing a tooth can happen for numerous reasons. Accidents happen all the time. If you find that you have lost a tooth due to an accident or progressive decay, there are options for replacements. Replacing one tooth is different than multiple. There are three options for replacing a single missing tooth.
It will consist of the dental implant post, an abutment, and the restorative prosthesis.
The restorative part of a single dental implant is called a crown. Much like the crown used to cap a broken tooth, crowns are made from durable porcelain or composite materials.
We use the support of your jawbone and surrounding teeth for the denture to fix into place. These may require adhesives, but not always.
One concern with this option is it may affect the bone density/bone loss over time and may need to be replaced.
A bridge is secured by the teeth next to the missing tooth. This is an ideal option for those that have healthy teeth surrounding the area. A bridge can be fixed or removable.
These are helpful to keep other teeth from shifting positions due to a missing tooth while filling the gap for a complete smile.
Replacing Multiple Teeth
Just like you would with a single tooth, partial dentures and bridges are available to replace multiple missing teeth. Partial dentures can be fitted for those that have a missing tooth on one side of the mouth and another missing on the opposite side. A bridge is useful for those with multiple teeth missing in one location, as long as there are healthy teeth that can be used as an anchoring point. Implant-supported dentures and bridges are popular options because they are more secure than the traditional alternatives and use a single implant that connects to a denture or bridge giving a more natural appearance.
A denture that snaps into place, connecting to a surgically placed implant. Will stabilize dentures while providing much-needed support for biting or chewing.
One of the top reasons this choice is significantly better than conventional dentures that are glued into place. With a traditional denture, the prosthetic is attached to the adjoining teeth with a bracket and is reliant on the surrounding teeth for support.
An implant-supported denture doesn’t require the surrounding teeth to be in excellent condition; rather it uses the implant as its support system.
For three or more missing teeth that are adjacent to one another, an implant supported bridge might be the best option.
Like the implant-supported denture, the bridge will merely be connected to the implant. However, they will be permanently fixed into place by your dentist.
