Missing Teeth

Request Appointment

Millions of Americans lose teeth every year. This is not just a problem for children or the elderly; accidents and tooth decay are the two leading causes of losing teeth, and they can affect anyone.  

At Dental Healing Arts, we are one of the few dentists who take a holistic and biologically friendly approach to dental care. This means that if you have missing teeth, you can count on us to deliver safe and effective treatment that takes into account your overall health.

Why Do I Need to Replace My Missing Teeth?

Missing teeth can not only harm your confidence and self-esteem but without a replacement, leaving a gap in your smile could lead to other dental and health problems. Teeth stimulate the jawbone; when a tooth is missing, the bone begins to degrade unless something else takes over the role.  

A missing tooth can also make your remaining teeth shift out of position. When there is a gap, your teeth naturally begin to move around your mouth. A tooth replacement to fill in the gaps can prevent this dental drift.

Common Treatments for Missing Teeth

Dental Implants  

Dental implants are the most natural and ideal way to replace a single tooth or multiple missing teeth. The dental implant is a device that, once placed in the bone, will begin to mimic your tooth root and prevent further bone deterioration. The implant is then fitted with a crown that will match your other teeth in a way that no one will be able to tell you were ever missing a tooth.  Dr. Fotek chooses the best, biocompatible solution to replace your tooth for the long term!  

Full-Arch Implant Restorations

In cases in which an entire row of teeth is missing or removed, we offer an arch restoration using implants. We can place multiple dental implants to support a bridge that effectively restores your smile. Once again, you’ll have something to smile about.


Dentures are one of the most well-known tooth-replacement options available. These dental appliances resemble a full row of teeth and are made from long-lasting materials like acrylic, Valplast (Flexible Denture), porcelain, and composite.
