The Importance of Replacing Missing Teeth
When a tooth is lost, it can lead to a multitude of dental health complications. When the tooth is lost the adjacent teeth shift in an attempt to fill the space, which results in crooked or misaligned teeth. Patients with missing teeth are also at an increased risk of developing tooth decay, gum disease, and further tooth loss. In advanced cases, tooth loss can lead to bone loss and jaw bone shrinkage. Patients with missing teeth may appear older than they are due to facial sagging caused by bone loss.

We offer several solutions for patients missing teeth. Our team will perform a full evaluation of your teeth and determine which solutions are right for you.
