Missing Teeth and What to Do

The Effect of Missing Teeth

Missing teeth, even just one, can negatively impact your life and quality of living drastically. Hiding your smile, adjusting your eating habits, and experiencing declining oral health and function—all of these can be a result of tooth loss. Even just a single missing tooth can lead to a downward spiral; your jawbone will deteriorate around the empty socket and surrounding teeth begin to shift, changing your bite and losing security within the jaw. Most patients who have missing teeth experience psychological effects as they feel embarrassed to smile or interact with others. If you feel like your missing teeth are causing you concern in your everyday life, its time to make a change. Drs. Michael Klein and Allon Waltuch offer modern solutions in our Cedarhurst, NY office.

Options to Replace missing Teeth

Dental Implants

Dental implants are considered the gold standard solution to replace missing teeth. We can replace any number of teeth with this solution, including individual teeth in any part of your mouth. Dental implants mimic both the tooth root and the crown, giving you almost 100 percent function and aesthetics back. With proper care, they can last you a lifetime and most people will never know that you were ever missing a tooth to begin with.

Full Arch Dental Implants

For those who are missing all their teeth or will need to have their teeth extracted, full arch dental implants are the closest thing to a natural set of teeth you can get. Unlike dentures, they are not removable and comfortably fit in your mouth without excessive plastic covering your palate or gums. They give you almost full function back to your mouth, feel natural and look real too.

Implant Supported Dentures

For those who have dentures or need to get them soon, implant supported dentures combine modern dental implants with a denture prosthesis. We can secure your denture to the implants for improved security, comfort and bite strength. While not as natural looking and feeling as full arch implants, they provide a significant advantage over traditional dentures without implants.

Dental Bridges

A surgery-free tooth replacement solution, a dental bridge is a collection of crowns that are fused together to span the gap of missing teeth. Bridges can replace one or more teeth but require abutment teeth to attach to. These abutment teeth will need to be permanently altered to support the bridge, but you can expect a more natural appearance and bite.
