Did you know that the longer you wait to replace missing, the more you increase your chance of developing a more complex dental problem?
Missing one or more teeth can have detrimental effects on your oral health. Missing teeth can affect the jawbone, neighboring teeth, and the alignment of your teeth. Replacing your missing teeth as soon as possible can save you time, money, and complications in the future.
Finding an experienced dentist is an integral part of finding a successful tooth replacement option.

We provide dental implants, dentures, and dental bridges for patients who are missing one or more teeth. Dr. Henrich takes the time to plan a personalized treatment plan to restore your smile and address any underlying dental problems that may be affecting your oral health. We used advanced techniques and technology to craft beautiful, functional smiles at Henrich Dental.
The Importance Of Replacing Missing Teeth
Patients who are missing teeth are more prone to developing certain oral conditions. Missing teeth can cause misalignment in the teeth, which can lead to an imbalanced or unstable bite. An imbalanced bite can cause unintended wear on your existing teeth, and even lead to further tooth loss if not treated accordingly. Patients with missing teeth are also more susceptible to jawbone deterioration, which may limit the amount of tooth replacement solutions available to them in the future.
Visiting the dentist regularly gives patients the best chance of finding the right solution for their smile while maintaining the integrity and aesthetic of their smile.
Missing Teeth Solutions in Tulsa
At Henrich Dental, we offer several different replacement options to restore missing teeth. Dr. Henrich has extensive experience crafting long-lasting, durable tooth replacement solutions to patients in need. The type of tooth replacement solution will depend on the number of missing teeth, location, and your overall oral health. Dr. Henrich will also consider factors like your lifestyle, budget, and dental goals before providing the appropriate tooth replacement solution. If needed, Dr. Henrich may suggest additional treatments to treat any underlying problems.
Dental Implants: Dental implants are one of the most successful tooth replacement options for patients missing one or more teeth. Dental implants are strategically placed into the jawbone where they act as a tooth root to adequately support your final restoration. Dental implants can promote bone regeneration and prevent further bone loss in the jaw. With proper care, dental implants can last years and improve the quality and aesthetic of your smile.

Dental Bridge: Dental bridges are used to replace several consecutive missing teeth. Dental bridges rely on the support of neighboring adjacent teeth to function. For a more secure solution, dental bridges can be placed using dental implants, which don’t compromise the health of your existing teeth.
Dentures: Dentures can be a valuable solution for patients missing the top, bottom, or both arches of teeth. Depending on your needs, Dr. Henrich may suggest a partial denture, full denture, or an implant secured denture. With implant secured dentures, patients can enjoy the added benefit of a more stable tooth replacement solution that allows you to eat, drink, and speak comfortably.
