Missing even one tooth compromises the health and stability of your entire smile.
Missing teeth need to be replaced. When a tooth is lost the integrity of the alignment of the teeth and the function of the bite become compromised. Without the root structure, teeth are susceptible to damage or shifting, causing more complex dental health concerns. Replacing missing teeth as soon after a loss as possible can prevent further deterioration of your oral health.
Replacing missing teeth can prevent the development of subsequent oral health concerns. Whether a patient chooses to use dental implants or opts for bridge or denture, modern dental restorations allow patients to enjoy a more beautiful, confident smile and improved oral health.
Replacing missing teeth can prevent:
- Gum disease
- Additional tooth loss
- Teeth from shifting
- Bone loss
- Facial sagging

Westside Dental Center provides every patient with attentive care and personalized treatment plan to address their missing teeth. Treatment will be determined based on several factors including a patient’s overall oral health, bone density, and personal goals.
- Missing a single tooth: One missing tooth is ideally replaced with a dental implant. A single implant can be placed into the root socket and mimics the natural tooth structure. The implant is capped with a custom designed dental crown. The final restoration will look and function like a natural, permanent tooth.
- Missing multiple teeth: For patients with several consecutive missing teeth, a dental bridge may be the best treatment option. A dental bridge can be attached to adjacent teeth or anchored using dental implants.
- Missing a full arch of teeth: Dentures are used to replace a full arch of missing teeth. Modern dentures are custom designed to look and feel more like natural teeth than ever before. A denture can be secured using dental implants for improved stability, comfort, and oral health.
