What are my options to replace a tooth after extraction?

Nobody likes to think about tooth extraction, but sometimes it is the only option available to protect you and your long-term oral health. The good news is that we have more solutions than ever before to replace missing teeth and can customize one for your needs.

Replace Missing Teeth in Tarzana, CA

Because there’s often an emotional component to tooth extraction, we like to start talking about your replacement options before your procedure, if possible. Losing a tooth is a big deal but much easier to bear when you know that a solution is at hand.

  • Orthodontics to move teeth into the open space
  • Dental implants to permanently replace the missing tooth
  • A dental bridge that anchors to the two teeth adjacent to the missing tooth
  • Partial dentures - removable flipper, cast-metal partial, or clear bonded retainer

Of course, you always have the option of not replacing the tooth at all. While we don’t recommend this approach, we respect your right to make your own choices.
