There are many reasons why you should replace missing teeth:

  • You may not like the appearance of your smile 
  • Missing teeth may affect how you speak
  • A missing molar (back tooth) can make it hard to eat
  • The teeth can "drift" or shift into the area of the missing tooth 
  • Bone loss can occur around the missing tooth. This in time can cause the remaining teeth to become loose over time
  • Loss of your teeth and bone can cause wrinkles and make your face sag. You may look older as a result of this. 

 

Depending on your needs, there are 3 options your dentists may suggest to replace your missing tooth/teeth.

  1. Implants
  2. Fixed Bridges
  3. Removable Partial Dentures
