Treatment Options Available at Image Dental for Missing Teeth

At Image Dental, we know not everyone’s situation is the same when it comes to missing teeth. Some will require more extensive work to restore their smiles, while others may only have one missing tooth. Patients may have a full arch that needs to be replaced. Regardless of what your dental situation is regarding missing teeth, we have all the options to give you a complete smile that you deserve.

Solutions for Single Tooth Replacement

When missing a single tooth, there are some great options available to you. Tooth loss can happen for numerous reasons including an accident or tooth decay that results in needing an extraction.

One of the most preferred methods for replacement includes bridges. Bridges are designed to fill the gap of missing teeth that are in a row and work well for one or several teeth that need to be replaced.  Bridges are fixed into place by your dentist and use the surrounding teeth as their support method. This means that the teeth next to the gap should be in good condition, able to support the weight of the bridge. One of the reasons this is a commonly used dental fixture is the cost. A bridge is one of the most affordable solutions to missing teeth.

Another option for those with a single missing tooth is to have a dental implant installed with a crown restoration attached. Dental implants are among the top choice for patients, and only have one significant disadvantage being cost. Dental implants are more expensive than bridgework and dentures. But they are considered a permanent solution to missing teeth and have the most beautiful and natural looking results. Most of our patients that have dental implants would highly recommend the procedure to anyone wanting to restore their smile due to missing teeth.

Solutions for Multiple Teeth Missing

Just as with single tooth replacement the options for filling the gap can include a bridge or dental implants. If you have missing teeth in different locations your dentist, Dr. Nozaki may recommend the use of a partial denture or denture to correct the problem. A denture, like a bridge, will be secured to the adjacent teeth. With dental implants, you don’t have to use a single implant for every tooth that is missing when in a row. In fact, one dental implant can be used to replace three teeth in a row.

Implant-Supported Bridges

Implant-Supported Bridge

Considered a permanent solution to missing teeth, getting an implant-supported bridge offers the most natural appearance for artificial teeth. The crowns are created to match your existing teeth in regards to shape and size, and with the use of porcelain material, they will match the color too.

This method for missing teeth solutions can use one or more dental implants depending on location and how much support is needed.

All-On-Four Implants

All-On-Four Implants

If you need to replace a full arch, the all-on-four dental implants are the best solution overall. With the use of four strategically placed dental implants, a specially designed denture can be attached to the implants for a more secure and comfortable solution to missing teeth.

This procedure is sometimes referred to as Teeth In a Day. After the implants have been placed your dentist can attach a temporary implant-supported denture, until your permanent one is ready, typically takes a few weeks.

Implant-Support Denture

Implant-Supported Denture

An implant-supported denture is one of the most secure ways to replace missing teeth.

With a dental implant, the denture can be attached, using the jawbone as an anchor versus the adjoining teeth. This is an excellent solution for those that don’t want to mess with glue or worry that their denture will fall out.
