Missing Tooth Replacement Options

Missing teeth can be disheartening. Riverside Oral Surgery offers a variety of missing tooth replacement options to restore function and confidence, including dental implants, bridges, and dentures tailored to your needs and budget. Let our skilled oral surgeons guide you toward a complete, healthy smile.

  • Fixed Bridge
  • Flipper
  • Metal Partial
  • Denture
  • Dental Implants

A fixed bridge is a connected set of replacement teeth. It is cemented into position on top of the teeth adjacent to the empty space for support. The protective outer layer of these teeth is usually removed or ground down prior to attaching the bridge.

A fragile, temporary, inexpensive solution is a removable plastic tooth with a plastic retainer, often called a “flipper”.

A less fragile option is a removable partial denture cast in metal and plastic. It is held in place by wire clips. A removable partial denture can be removed and reinserted when required by the patient.

Complete dentures are the most common solution for people missing all teeth in one or both jaws. Some people adapt well to dentures. Others find them uncomfortable, even intolerable, because of differences in jaw size and shape.

Dental implants are the most comfortable and permanent solution. They form a strong foundation for teeth and keep the jaw healthy and strong. Implants support individual replacement teeth or secure specialized dentures in place. Unlike bridges, no healthy teeth are damaged. Unlike most bridges, implants can last a lifetime. Implant-supported replacement teeth can be attractive, stable, and comfortable for almost any patient.

I recently had all 4 of my wisdom teeth extracted at riverside oral surgery with Dr. Lynn. I have very fair skin and expected a lot of bruising and swelling, which to my surprise I have almost none of. Dr. Lynn is extremely professional and charismatic, and clearly a master in his field. I never expected to have such an easy and smooth recovery. Thank you Dr. Lynn and the rest of riverside oral staff for such a great experience!

Did You Know? Generally, people will lose 25% of their supporting jawbone structure within the first year after tooth loss. Dental implants are more easily placed when teeth are first extracted because bone replacement becomes more complex as time passes.

Why Select Dental Implants Over More Traditional Types Of Restorations?

There are several reasons: A dental bridge can sacrifice the structure of surrounding good teeth to bridge the missing tooth/teeth space. In addition, removing a denture or a “partial” at night may be inconvenient, not to mention dentures that slip can be uncomfortable and rather embarrassing.
