Missing teeth are not only unattractive but not replacing them can lead to more complicated oral health issues down the road. At Saticoy Plaza Dentistry, we have several solutions for replacing missing teeth and protecting the health of your smile.
How Do Bridges Replace Teeth?
Bridges are a dental prosthetic that fills the space left by a missing tooth. A dental bridge consists of an artificial tooth held in place by crowns attached to adjacent teeth.
Partial and complete dentures are appropriate whether you are missing several teeth or all your teeth. We can fashion beautiful, natural-looking dentures that will provide you with many years of use.
These are both excellent options that have worked well for millions of people. But dental implants placed at our Van Nuys office are a very popular tooth replacement method and are considered the gold standard for tooth replacement.
Unlike the other options, a dental implant is a permanent, standalone structure that looks and functions just like a natural tooth. It is rooted firmly in your jaw, which gives it superior stability and strength. Dental implants also offer the advantage of helping stimulate bone growth in the jaw after tooth loss.
