Dental Implants Offer a Variety of Treatment Options for Single or Multiple Missing Teeth
Benefits of Dental Implants
Some of the key cosmetic benefits of dental implants include:
- Improves the quality and health of your smile.
- Fills any gaps in your smile.
- Boosts self-confidence and increases self-esteem.
- Creates an even and uniform smile.
- Preserves facial structure and youthful appearance.
- Stimulates the jaw bone to prevent deterioration that could impact the facial structure.

Receiving a Multiple or Single Tooth Implant in Encino, CA
Are you missing one or more teeth? Any number of missing teeth can be replaced with either multiple implants or a single tooth implant in Encino, CA, by Dr. Alfred Penhaskashi.
Dental Implants are Today’s Favored Option for Replacing Missing Teeth
Among the many reasons dental implants are the most popular restorative option for missing teeth are the following:
- Permanent, secure tooth replacement.
- Comfortable and highly aesthetic.
- Replace one or multiple teeth.
- Maintain facial function, support, and appearance.
Options for One or More Missing Teeth
Other dental restorative options exist for one or multiple missing teeth. While some are more effective than others, the ultimate goal is to replace your missing tooth or teeth quickly.
When a tooth is lost, replacing it as soon as possible is important. Doing so makes sure your remaining teeth stay healthy because multiple missing teeth are often the result of a domino effect that starts as soon as the first tooth is lost. Dr. Penhaskashi replaces one or more missing teeth through various restorative techniques.
Single Missing Tooth Restorative Options
Dental implants are the leading choice for patients who have lost a single tooth because they provide the structural support and other qualities that are inherent to a natural tooth. The titanium post, which is anchored in the jaw, can stop the bone loss that typically follows tooth loss.
Dental implants are also an ideal way to replace a single tooth because they can be customized to look identical to the rest of your natural teeth. Restoring your smile with a dental implant makes smiling and socializing a lot more comfortable and pleasant—especially in personal and business life.
A dental bridge is another option. Three crown units are needed to make it work—one in the middle where the empty space is and two that are fitted on either side over the natural teeth. This method can potentially cause damage to the existing teeth but does provide reasonably good results.
Partial dentures are also used to fill in the space between natural teeth but are rarely the first choice. This is because they require clasps for stability, making them uncomfortable to wear. They also look conspicuous and do not provide any of the health benefits that dental implants do, particularly regarding bone loss.
Two or More Missing Teeth Restorative Options
When many missing teeth need replacing, dental implants are an ideal solution. They last longer, provide the health benefits your jaw needs to stay fit, look far more natural than other options, and maintain your best facial appearance.
Dental bridges outfitted with dental implants are another possible treatment for missing teeth. Implant-supported dental bridges entail using implants to fabricate and support either side of the bridge rather than relying on two natural teeth for support.
Implant-supported dentures are for patients missing all of their teeth who still want the benefits and ease of having dental implants. Implant-supported dentures are designed to give your smile more stability and jaw support than traditional dentures.
