Restorative DentistryMissing teeth can be a problem, not just in appearance but in other ways as well. When you have a missing tooth, the gum is more susceptible to infection and injury. The teeth in the area of the missing tooth will have a tendency to start shifting. And eating and speaking can be troublesome, depending on where the missing tooth is located.
Restorative dentistry can provide dental devices for the replacement of teeth that are missing. If you are missing one solitary tooth, a dental implant can act as a good substitute. With an implant, our dentist in Santa Clarita will anchor the implant into your gum, and the prosthetic crown that is attached will effectively replace the tooth. Your implant will be very secure and will not loosen. You will have a natural-looking replacement for your tooth that no one will know is an implant.
When you are missing several teeth, a partial fixed bridge is usually the dental device of choice for replacement. The teeth on either side of your missing teeth will have crowns applied to them. These crowns are anchors for the bridge, which will hold your replacement teeth. You will take care of your dental device, whether it is an implant or a bridge, in the same way you would take care of your natural teeth.
Missing teeth can be really embarrassing, but our Santa Clarita restorative dentist has devices that can replace them and you will have teeth that look completely natural.
