Do you have one or more missing teeth? Are you looking for a fuller and more balanced smile?
Dr. Michael Ayzin and the professional team at Dentistry At Its Finest in Costa Mesa, CA offer restorative treatment options to their patients. Replacing missing teeth can help preserve the natural tooth structure, improve the health of adjacent teeth, and create a more even and balanced bite.
Why Replace Missing Teeth?
If the gaps left by missing teeth are not filled soon enough, multiple problems may arise, such as:
- Bone loss
- Speech issues
- Crooked teeth
- Shifting teeth
- Difficulty chewing
- Facial sagging
However, replacing missing teeth can help combat these issues. Call 714.540.5511 if you have one or more missing teeth or have noticed any of these problems.
Treatment Options for Missing Teeth
Dr. Ayzin offers multiple treatment options to replace missing teeth. Before treatment, he will discuss your oral health, budget, and goals to determine which solution will work the best for you. Restorative treatments include:
Dental Implants: Single missing teeth or whole arches of teeth can be replaced utilizing dental implants. Dental implants consist of a titanium post which is inserted into the jawbone. After a period of 3 to 6 months, a permanent abutment and dental crown are added for a permanent restoration.
Dental Bridges: One or more teeth can be replaced with dental bridges. This option can be removable or secured in place with dental implants. Dental bridges can also utilize surrounding natural teeth to secure and replace consecutive missing teeth. Further tooth loss can be prevented with this solution.
Dentures and Partials: Multiple teeth or the upper and lower arches of teeth can be replaced with dentures or partial dentures. Like dental bridges, dentures can be removable or secured by dental implants. Many patients also find that it is easier to bite and chew food with these dental restorations.
