Replace Teeth

A confident smile and a healthy mouth are important assets but it is important to replace missing teeth for health reasons as well.
Some of the health reasons to replace missing teeth are:

1. If you have missing teeth the way your jaw opens and closes can be affected, this can result in a condition called TMJ Dysfunction which is extremely painful and requires surgery in extreme cases.

2. Gaps between the teeth which allows the movement of other teeth into these spaces. These surrounding teeth become increasingly susceptible to decay and gum disease, which can result in them being lost as well.

3. Once teeth have gone it results in bone loss. This not only shortens your face and ages it, but can cause other teeth to become loose which are then at risk of falling out. Your features droop and generally appear distorted.

The best replacement for missing teeth are dental implants as they act like the roots of teeth, bonding to the jaw and reducing the risk of bone loss.

There are other options which you can consider, such as Dentures and Bridges.
