Toluca Lake Dental Implant Dentist Explains The Tooth Replacement Treatments Available To Patients

Written by Dr. McKay on Jul 26, 2022

If you are living with an incomplete smile due to premature tooth loss, then this article is for you! Today our Toluca Lake dental implant dentists are sharing information about the treatments we use to replace missing teeth and restore smiles. Let’s get started! 

Replacing Single Teeth 

If you are missing an individual tooth, our team will create a restoration that mirrors your natural tooth shape and shade. Once it is in put in place, this replacement tooth will blend in seamlessly with your smile, and you’ll be able to chew comfortably with your restoration in place.

Replacing Multiple Teeth

As you might imagine, when a patient is missing several teeth, it becomes even more important to complete restorative treatment. Single replacement teeth can be used in combination to restore the smile, or larger dental prostheses like bridges and dentures can replace multiple teeth at once. The key to successful treatment is ensuring that these replacement teeth work in harmony with your existing smile. 

Making Restorations Permanent

Whether you are replacing a single tooth or your entire smile, dental implant technology can help you smile confidently and maintain a healthy smile. Dental implants essentially make your replacement teeth permanent, by securing them into the jawbone tissue with titanium roots. Because titanium bonds with natural bone tissue, your replacement teeth will be held in place. This type of technology can be used for individual restorations as well as prostheses like dentures.

As you can see, modern restorative dentistry allows you to reclaim a healthy and whole smile after tooth loss. If you have any questions about these treatments, or if you’d like to schedule a personal appointment, please don’t hesitate to reach out to our Toluca Lake dental implant dentists.
