A wide range of tooth replacement options
Dental implant-based tooth restorations are popular because of their versatility, permanence, and natural aesthetics. Dr. Falk and Dr. Moody at Canyon Oral Surgery offer tooth restoration options for a single tooth, multiple teeth, or even an entire arch of teeth.
During your consultation appointment at Canyon Oral & Facial Surgery Dental Implant Experts, 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. Dr. Falk and Dr. Moody perform dental implant-based tooth restorations at their practice in Summerlin, NV, and Centennial Hills, NV.
Although Canyon Oral & Facial Surgery Dental Implant Experts 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.
- Dental Implants. 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. Dr. Falk and Dr. Moody 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®. For patients with severe tooth loss and/or decay, All-on-4 replaces an entire upper or lower arch of teeth in as little as one procedure. All-on-4 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. Dr. Falk and Dr. Moody offer All-on-4 to their patients. Learn more by visiting our All-on-4 page.
- Bridges. 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 Dental Implant Experts to discuss your options with a skilled oral surgeon. Dr. Falk and Dr. Moody will perform a thorough evaluation and discuss your personal oral health goals to create the right treatment plan for you.
