Missing teeth can lead to a cascade of complex dental problems that can ultimately compromise your quality of life. In addition to feeling embarrassed by your appearance, missing teeth can increase your risk of tooth decay, gum disease and changes in the bite. Dr. Kush Patel and Dr. Krutav Patel offer options for replacing missing teeth in our Fullerton, CA dentist office. Restoring your lost teeth quickly and effectively is important for lasting dental health.
Missing Teeth: Treatment Options
Modern dentistry has revolutionized tooth replacement with new materials and treatment options. Patients can now enjoy permanent, secure tooth replacement that functions like natural teeth when choosing dental implants. Dental implants can also be used to stabilize a denture or dental bridge for more comfortable results that do not slip or fall out.
During a consultation, your Fullerton dentist will thoroughly evaluate your overall dental health and discuss your concerns and goals. Recommended treatment can include:
- Dental bridges: used to replace one or more consecutive teeth
- Dentures: used to replace the upper or lower arch of missing teeth
- Dental implants: a prosthetic tooth implanted into the jaw bone to mimic a natural tooth and provide a secure result. Implants can also be used to secure a denture or bridge.
Replacing missing teeth will restore not only your dental health, but your self confidence. Your restored smile will enable you to enjoy a healthy diet, normal speech – and your best possible quality of life!
