WHAT CAN I DO IF I HAVE MISSING TEETH?

Losing a tooth by accident or by extraction is not the end of the matter.  When a tooth is missing, the following results:

  • nearby and adjascent teeth tilt or drift from their normal position, and
  • the teeth above the gap will move downward.

Aside from the obvious cosmetic problem, the changed positions of these teeth can lead to severe bite problems causing jaw pain and/or headaches.  Missing teeth should be replaced to keep other teeth in their normal position.  This can be done by means of a fixed bridge or a dental implant.  Both of these treatments offer an excellent functional and cosmetic result.

If you have one or more missing teeth, call us with any questions you may have about the benefits of replacing missing teeth with bridges or dental implants.
