Tooth Replacement Options
Complete Your Smile
Dental implant-based tooth restorations are popular because of their versatility, permanence, and natural aesthetics. Dr. Falk, Dr. Moody, and Dr. Yau at Canyon Oral & Facial Surgery offer tooth restoration options for a single tooth, multiple teeth, or even an entire arch of teeth.
During your first visit at our practice, your oral surgeon will perform a complete oral evaluation, discuss your personal smile goals, and formulate a treatment plan designed to enhance your smile and improve your oral health.
Types of Tooth Replacement
Although Canyon Oral & Facial Surgery specializes in dental implant-based tooth restorations, such as dental implants and full-arch restoration, we understand that these options may not be the right treatment for everyone. We want our patients to feel good about their treatment and their results, no matter what they choose. That’s why we have compiled a list of the most common options for tooth replacement. If any of these options are of interest to you, please call us to learn more.
Many patients who opt for dental implants love the results. Dental implants look, feel, and function just like natural teeth and can replace a single tooth, multiple teeth, or a full upper or lower arch of teeth. Dental implants also preserve jaw bone health by preventing bone loss. Our oral surgeons perform dental implant placement at their practice. You can learn more about dental implants by visiting our Dental Implants page.
Implant-Supported Dentures/All-on-4® Treatment Concept
For patients with severe tooth loss and/or decay, All-on-4 treatment concept replaces an entire upper or lower arch of teeth in as little as one procedure. All-on-4 treatment concept is considered a dental implant-based tooth replacement method because it uses as few as 4 dental implant posts to secure the prosthesis. The results are functional and natural-looking. Our oral surgeons offer All-on-4 treatment concept to their patients. Learn more by visiting our All-on-4 treatment concept page.
Patients missing one or more teeth next to each other are commonly offered a bridge as a tooth replacement option. A dentist places a bridge, which can either be fixed or removable. Patients considering a bridge should be aware that the healthy teeth supporting the prosthesis may need to be ground down, and the prosthesis itself may need to be replaced at some point.
Full or Partial Dentures
Many patients with tooth loss wear dentures as their tooth replacement option of choice. Like dental implants, dentures can replace a single tooth, multiple teeth, or an entire arch of teeth at once. However, they differ from dental implants because dentures lack an implant post that fuses with the jaw bone. As such, dentures can be fixed or removable, and they do not preserve the health of the jaw bone. In fact, dentures can accelerate bone loss. Pre-prosthetic surgery may be recommended to provide a more comfortable and secure fit for your dentures if in-office adjustments fail to work.
If you are experiencing tooth loss of any kind, we encourage you to contact Canyon Oral & Facial Surgery to discuss your options with a skilled oral surgeon. One of our board-certified oral surgeons will perform a thorough evaluation and discuss your personal oral health goals to create the right treatment plan for you.
