Many patients visit our office looking to learn more about their tooth replacement options following tooth loss. It is very important to replace missing teeth before they cause a variety of complex dental concerns. People with missing teeth are more likely to experience concerns like tooth decay and gum disease. This is because missing teeth create new, hard-to-reach spaces within your smile for bacteria and food residue to get caught in. Even patients with the most thorough oral hygiene habits struggle to keep their smiles clean following tooth loss. Additionally, missing teeth mess with your bite pattern and can make daily tasks like chewing and speaking more difficult than they should be.
