Dental Implants to Replace Missing Teeth

What’s So Bad About Losing a Tooth?

While you might believe that decay and accident or trauma are the most common reasons people lose a tooth, the true destroyer is gum disease. So is it a big issue to lose a tooth? Actually, losing even a single tooth can cause your other teeth to change position, which is not good. Missing teeth affects your ability to chew and to absorb nutrients from your food. Because it’s harder to chew with missing teeth, you may begin favoring softer foods with more carbohydrates, which can cause you to gain weight. Other bad things can happen, including your speech being altered. The gaps in your teeth may cause your face to change shape, creating a “sunken” appearance that can make you look much older than you really are.

Designed to match your remaining teeth, dental implants can replace one tooth or multiples and are the best way to treat a missing tooth (or missing teeth). They look so natural that at first glance even a dentist will have trouble telling the difference.
