Tooth Replacement Options

Patients missing a tooth or multiple teeth are at risk for numerous oral health complications, such as bone damage and infection. It makes eating and speaking challenging. Many patients reported reduced self-confidence.

Dr. Jonathan K. Nakano at Thousand Oaks Oral Surgery is an expert oral and maxillofacial surgeon in Thousand Oaks, CA.

On the other hand, dental implants may not be the best tooth replacement solution for every patient. Learn more about tooth replacement options in the sections below:

Dental Implants

Dental implants are a conventional tooth replacement solution for these reasons:
  • Versatility – a single tooth or multiple teeth can be replaced at once
  • Permanent and stable
  • Restores facial symmetry and harmony
  • Enhances oral health
  • Several patients qualify
  • Increased self-confidence!

Full-Arch Replacement

Full-arch replacement can restore the entire upper or lower set of teeth at once. Patients with most or all teeth missing benefit the most from this procedure. The full-arch restoration procedure works by strategically setting four or more dental implants on the lower or upper arch. A temporary but firm set of teeth will be utilized right after the dental implants have been set. A permanent arch will be placed after the dental implants have recovered. A full-arch restoration can be put in place, like the All-on-4® procedure, or detachable like the Bar Replacement Denture. If you want to know more about the full-arch restoration procedure, don’t hesitate to give us a call.

Bridges (Tooth-Supported)

A dental bridge can provide a practical option if one or more teeth need to be replaced and are close together. Tooth-supported bridges fasten over several teeth to bridge the gap between the lost teeth. Unfortunately, the teeth that hold the bridge need to be ground down to secure the prosthesis — even if they are healthy. While many bridges are attached with a permanent adhesive, some are detachable. A general dentist sets a bridge. Normal wear and tear on the bridge suggest that they often need to be replaced at some point. A bridge that should be replaced varies, but they usually last a few years to several decades. Frequent replacements over time add to the overall investment of this tooth-replacement solution, even though they are less costly than a dental implant. Your dentist and Dr. Jonathan K. Nakano can help you with tooth replacement solutions.

full or partial dentures

Full or Partial Dentures

Full or partial dentures are a popular choice for patients. Dentures should not be painful to use, but some patients encounter discomfort or inconvenience when wearing them and should acknowledge other tooth replacement options if they are unsatisfied. In addition, pre-prosthetic surgery can surgically equip the mouth to make dentures more comfortable. Full or partial dentures are entirely removable, which several patients prefer. Your dentist can tailor your dentures; however, an oral surgeon will perform the procedure if pre-prosthetic surgery is recommended.
