Tooth loss is an unfortunate problem affecting many people. In fact, the average American adult loses three or more teeth by 64 years of age. Our Yuba City dentists have a solution for tooth loss, based on your individual needs. Replacing missing teeth makes it easier to speak, eat and enjoy life.
If you are missing teeth, come see us for a one-on-one consultation and exam. People lose their teeth for a variety of reasons, including accidents, delayed dental care, and damaged or poor quality restorations. Bone loss and shifting teeth may affect the tooth replacement options available, but with all the advances in dental science, we can suggest procedures that have a high rate of success. Tooth replacement options include the following techniques.
A dental bridge is anchored to neighboring teeth on either side of the gap, or on dental implants. depending on your circumstances. Bridges may be permanent or removable.
This is the right choice if you are missing most or all of your teeth on one or both arches. Custom dentures are now better than ever. Designed for an exact fit, they are now more comfortable and natural looking. If combined with dental implants, dentures fit very securely and “snap in” and “snap off.”
These are absolutely the best option when replacing a single lost tooth, but they can also replace multiple teeth. Implants are affixed to your jawbone. This makes them the most stable and realistic tooth replacement option. Dental implants preserve a healthy jaw by stimulating the bone tissue. Plus, you take care of them just like natural teeth — brushing and flossing is all that’s required!
