What is the best way to replace a missing tooth?
We consider a number of factors when it comes to replacing missing teeth for our patients. Your best option depends largely upon your goals for your smile. Here are the options we offer in our Irvine, CA dental office:
Fixed dental bridge – We place crowns on the teeth adjacent to your missing tooth and anchor an artificial tooth in place, filling the gap in your smile. A fixed dental bridge can complete your smile and keep your teeth from shifting, but does not prevent bone loss. We create custom dental bridges to match your existing smile.
Partial denture – A partial denture can replace multiple missing teeth. We provide esthetic, comfortable, and functional partial dentures that allow our patients to smile confidently again.
Dental implants – Considered the best replacement for missing teeth by most surgeons and dentists, dental implants replace missing teeth using a titanium screw that naturally integrates with your jawbone. Dental implants keep your remaining teeth from shifting, are highly esthetic and stable, and provide reliable long-term solutions to tooth loss.
To discover your options, contact Formosa Dental Arts today. An evaluation with Dr. Alexander Chang will help to answer your questions and make a decision that gives you a healthy, confident smile.
