Replacing Missing Teeth

Although permanent teeth are meant to last for life, they can be lost because of an injury, advanced gum disease, or another issue. Are you missing one or more permanent teeth? Having the tooth or teeth replaced can not only enhance your appearance, it can restore your ability to speak and chew properly. But what are your options? Speak to Dr. Joan M. Jupina about tooth replacement in Hayward, California.

Dental Bridge
A dental bridge is made up of a replacement tooth with a dental crown attached to either side. The dental crowns are placed on the teeth bordering the missing tooth or teeth to anchor the bridge. There are several types of dental bridges available.

Dental Implant
Unlike other tooth replacement options, a dental implant replaces both the root and crown of the tooth. This means that dental implants are very sturdy and long lasting. This also means that they will stimulate the jawbone, thus promoting jaw health. These tooth replacements are very similar to natural teeth in function and appearance. Dental implants can replace one teeth or multiple implants can be used to replace multiple teeth.
