Losing a tooth can affect your appearance, self-assurance, chewing, speaking, and overall dental well-being. Thankfully, modern dental advancements offer a range of fantastic choices to replace missing teeth.
Are you missing a tooth? Unsure how to replace it? Let’s explore the available options.
Options for replacing a missing tooth
Restored Dental Functionality
Replacing a missing tooth restores dental function, empowering individuals to chew, speak, and bite easily and confidently. Whether opting for a dental bridge, denture, or dental implant, all options offer improved oral function and enhanced quality of life.
Why should you replace a missing tooth?
A missing tooth can significantly hinder proper chewing and speech, making it challenging to enjoy meals and communicate clearly. Replacing the missing tooth restores functionality, allowing you to eat, speak, and enunciate with ease.
The gaps resulting from missing teeth can trigger adjacent teeth to shift or tilt, potentially causing misalignment and leading to issues such as uneven wear on the remaining teeth. Movement in your teeth can also cause food to get trapped in your teeth, leading to decay and further issues. Prompt replacement helps maintain the proper alignment and promotes overall dental health and comfort.
The surrounding jawbone may weaken or shrink over time when a tooth is lost. Replacing missing teeth contributes to preserving the jawbone structure.
Missing teeth impact your smile and overall facial appearance. The shrinking of your jawbone can result in a sunken facial appearance. Replace missing teeth to boost self-confidence and achieve a natural, pleasing smile.
Wondering which option is for you?
