Many people may cover up their smile because they are embarrassed about their missing teeth. When their smile isn’t at their brightest, their confidence is affected as well.
When a tooth is extracted or lost, other teeth can be affected. If you have a missing tooth or multiple missing teeth, you may be at risk for other dental problems.
Problems With Missing Teeth
Missing a tooth or multiple teeth may result in several oral health problems, such as:
- Bite Irregularities
- Difficulty Chewing
- Bone Loss
- Tooth Pain and Sensitivity
Teeth also play a role in forming speech, so the way that a person talks may be affected by missing teeth. In addition, remaining teeth in the mouth may shift to compensate for missing teeth. This may lead to crooked teeth and bite problems caused by uneven teeth.
How Dental Implants Can Help
Prior to treatment, Dr. David Rever evaluates the condition of a patient’s teeth as well as their overall oral health. He then recommends the proper treatment.
Dental implants are titanium posts that replace the roots of missing teeth. They are anchored to natural bone and provide a sturdy base for a dental crown. Dental crowns cover the post, giving it a natural appearance. Implants act like natural teeth by stabilizing the mouth and helping a patient chew normally.
