Restorative DentistryMissing teeth in the mouth can present problems as the existing teeth may shift when there is an opening. The exposed gum can be injured easily when eating and chewing. A gap in the teeth will also look very unattractive.
Should you have any missing teeth, whether one or several, our dentist in Arcadia can replace them with dental devices that will look and act just like your original teeth. One missing tooth will be very effectively replaced with a dental implant. With an implant anchored into your gum, the prosthetic tooth will stay in place and look very natural. You will take care of it in the exact same way as your natural teeth. An implant will restore your smile to what it once was, with no ugly gaps detracting from your appearance.
Our Arcadia restorative dentist can manage any dental damage or missing teeth and restore them to their complete functioning ability and natural look.
Arcadia Restorative DentistOur Arcadia dentist can fit you with a partial fixed bridge for those situations where more than one tooth is gone. A bridge attaches to crowns that are fitted onto the teeth that are on either side of the open area where your missing teeth were located. With the bridge firmly anchored to these crowns, you will have a very suitable and natural-looking replacement for your missing teeth. Think of how good you will feel when you smile in confidence. Eating and speaking will no longer be difficult, as you will not have any open sections in your mouth.
Full dentures are used when all of the teeth need to be replaced. Our restorative dentist in Arcadia will take a mold of your mouth so that your dentures will have the proper fit. This procedure will happen during your first visit. When you come back to the office to have your new teeth fitted into your mouth, any necessary adjustments will be made, and you will receive proper instructions on the care of your dentures.
Dental bonding is also a technique that our Arcadia restorative dentist can use to restore broken teeth that need to be built up. When you have your teeth properly repaired and/or replaced, you will once again have an attractive smile.
Missing teeth make it hard to eat, talk and smile without embarrassment. Contact our restorative dentist in Arcadia to replace your missing teeth as soon as possible.
