Just one missing tooth can negatively impact your long-term oral health. Missing teeth need to be replaced as soon as possible to prevent deterioration of oral health and the development of more complex dental concerns. Lost teeth jeopardize the stability and integrity of the jaw bone and put surrounding teeth at a higher risk for developing decay, shifting or becoming damaged.

Treatment Options for Missing Teeth
The type of missing tooth treatment you receive will be determined by the location and number of missing teeth as well as your overall oral and physical health. Dr. Barakat will also take into consideration any cosmetic goals you may have. We will work with you to choose the missing tooth replacement option that will provide you with long-term oral stability and health.
- Dental Implants: Dental implants are the most natural option for replacing missing teeth. Implants replace the missing root structure and stimulate natural bone growth for a more stable oral foundation. Dental implants can be restored with a dental crown, dentures or a dental bridge.
- Dental bridges: a custom fabricated dental bridge is ideal for replacing several consecutive missing teeth. A bridge can be removable or secured permanently using dental implants.
- Dentures: today’s dentures are more natural looking and better fit than in the past. Dentures can be removable or permanently secured using dental implants.
- Mini Implants: In some cases, mini implants and the dental restoration can be placed in just one visit to our dentist office.
