What are my options for restoring a missing tooth?

Having a gap in your smile not only alters your appearance, but can also change the contours of your jawline. Missing a tooth can also create a shift in your smile as the surrounding teeth move toward the empty space, leading to bone recession and facial sagging that ages you prematurely.

By restoring your tooth, you can continue enjoying your favorite meals and speak clearly. Are you hiding your smile because you feel uncomfortable? We offer multiple dental services to restore your appearance, self-esteem, and quality of life.

We Restore Missing Teeth

At Healthy Living Dentistry, patients may enjoy tooth replacement options like:

Full and partial dentures are a popular tooth restoration option for many patients in Foothill Ranch. Modern advancements in dental material and technology mean that modern-day dentures are more comfortable and look more natural than dentures from decades ago.  

Dental implants are the only permanent option to restore missing teeth, down to the root. This stimulates healthy bone growth and stops adjacent teeth from shifting. With proper care and maintenance, patients can expect to enjoy their dental implants for a lifetime. 

All-on-4 dental implants are a wonderful option for patients with multiple missing teeth on either arch. Instead of replacing each individual tooth, we can restore all the teeth on the top or bottom of your smile.

Patients who are missing one or multiple teeth may be interested in a non-surgical alternative. Your dentist will use neighboring teeth to "bridge" an artificial tooth in the empty space. This comfortable and natural-looking prosthetic is a popular option.
