Tooth loss is a serious oral health problem that affects aesthetics, day-to-day dental functioning, and long-term oral health. That’s why our Novato dental implant dentists work so hard to provide state-of-the-art restorative care to our patients. Keep reading to learn more…

Replacing Single Teeth

Tooth loss occurs for a number of reasons, including untreated oral infections and dental traumas. High-quality, prompt restorative treatment will help you get your smile back on track functionally and aesthetically. The replacement teeth that we craft are sized, shaped, and shaded to blend in with your natural smile.

Replacing Multiple Teeth

Many patients come into our office needing to replace multiple teeth in order to restore their smiles to health. One treatment option is to use individual restorations for each missing tooth along the gum line. Alternatively, you may decide to use one larger dental prosthesis, like a denture or a bridge, to fill in the gaps in your smile. Both of these are great options; it just depends on the health of your smile, your dental goals, and your treatment timeline.

Making Restorations Permanent

As you can see there are a number of strategies for replacing the visible crown of your tooth, and doing so with a restoration that is natural looking and durable. Additionally, dental implant technology enables us to replace your missing tooth root as well. Here’s how it works…

  1. Titanium implant roots extend from your restoration into your jawbone
  2. As your jawbone tissue heals, it bonds with the titanium implant post
  3. We permanently secure your replacement tooth do this implant base
  4. You jump back into life with a stable and permanent replacement tooth

So, if you are living with an incomplete smile, our Novato dental implant dentists encourage you to schedule a consultation with our team. You don’t have to live with the effects of tooth loss forever—we’re here to help!
