Missing Teeth

Missing Teeth - Prism Dental Group, Thousand Oaks Dentist

DID YOU KNOW THAT THE AVERAGE ADULT BETWEEN THE AGES OF 20 and 64 HAS THREE OR MORE DECAYED OR MISSING TEETH?

There are several reason for why you may be missing a single tooth, multiple teeth or all teeth. This can become problematic because a large space between your teeth may affect how you speak or eat and a missing molar can cause adjacent teeth to shift causing bone loss. In simple words, one missing tooth can easily jeopardize 3 other healthy teeth.

Reasons why you may be missing teeth:

  • Cavities
  • Gum disease
  • Trauma/accidents
  • Congenitally missing (you never had that tooth)

With today’s advances, you don’t have to be afraid of missing teeth, hide your smile or change the way you eat. Dr. Siddappa is instrumental in developing a treatment plan that can be customized to the patient, and ensures that your comfort and well-being is her top priority.

Options to replace the teeth:

  • Bridges - An option when you are missing single or few teeth. Anchored to your adjacent teeth
  • Partial or Complete Dentures - An option if you’ve lost all or some of your teeth.
  • Implants - Most similar to a natural tooth. Option to replace single tooth, multiple teeth or all the teeth
