Many of our patients are looking for a replacement for missing teeth. When they come to us looking for advice, we want to make sure that our patients know about all the options available to replace missing teeth, from dental implants, All on 4 Implants, snap in dentures, traditional dentures and fixed-in dental implant supported dentures, and more.
Why replace missing teeth?
When a person loses a tooth or multiple teeth as a result of decay or other trauma to the mouth, its important to replace those teeth to maintain the smile. When teeth are missing, the gum line begins to recede, weakening the jaw and ultimately causing bone loss.
When that bone loss occurs, it can cause your existing natural healthy teeth to recede and makes them more prone to decay and shifting. Your entire jaw and face shape will change, and it can cause your lips to look older, in addition to making normal tasks like eating and talking more difficult.
However, each patient who is looking to replace missing teeth will need their own unique treatment plan. This is why we offer a free consultation to see what your missing tooth or teeth look like, and how we can best enhance your smile.
