Replacing Missing Teeth

Missing teeth have a significant impact on your mouth. Not only do missing teeth prevent you from enjoying a confident smile, they also affect your ability to chew and speak normally as well as contribute to shifting and instability in your remaining teeth. Our dentist and team offer several solutions for replacing your missing teeth in College Point and Whitestone, New York. We invite you to call us at 718-747-0020 for more information and to schedule your consultation with Dr. Tanya Vlacancich.

Missing teeth have a significant impact on your oral health and function. Missing teeth affect your ability to smile, speak and eat. Your teeth also perform an important role in stimulating your supporting bone to keep it strong and healthy. This ensures that your teeth have a stable foundation. If you lose a tooth, we recommend that you replace it as soon as possible so that you can regain normal oral health and function before your remaining teeth can shift out of place or any other problems can occur.

There are several options available for replacing your missing teeth. These options include:

  • Dental Bridges — Bridges may be recommended to replace a single tooth or several teeth in a row. A dental bridge is anchored to the two teeth on either side of the gap using dental crowns and works to restore your bite and smile to full function. Bridges are a fixed, or nonremovable, tooth replacement option.
  • Dentures — Dentures are a removable tooth replacement option and are typically recommended to replace multiple teeth. Dentures may be used to replace many or all the teeth in a dental arch. There are two main types of dentures: complete dentures and partial dentures.
  • Dental Implants — Dental implants consist of two main parts: an implant post and an implant restoration. The post replaces the tooth root, while the restoration caps the post to complete your treatment. The restoration may consist of a single crown, a bridge or a denture. Implants replace your entire tooth and are designed to provide you with a long-term solution which looks, feels and functions exactly like your original tooth.

When you meet with our dentist, we will examine your mouth and discuss all of your treatment options with you so that you can choose the type of tooth replacement that is right for your needs.

What Patients Are Saying

  • I had scheduled an appointment with Dr. Vlacancich while my usual dentist was on vacation, and the office made time to see me very quickly. I was able to fill out my paperwork online, making the process extremely easy when I arrived at the office. Dr. Vlacancich and her staff were extremely welcoming and friendly and talked me through every step, even fitting me in for a cleaning after my issue was resolved. I can't say enough good things. There was not a single bit of pain, and I will definitely be returning for my next cleaning as well as recommending Dr. Vlacancich to my friends and family.
