A missing tooth changes the way you look, the way it feels to chew or speak, and it can adversely affect your self-esteem. Worst of all, even one missing tooth can have a negative impact on your oral health leading to dental drift (shifting of surrounding teeth to fill in the gap), loss of gum tissue shape and support, and reduction in bone density. It is essential that missing teeth be replaced in a timely fashion in order to protect your long term oral health, but traditional tooth replacement options don’t always sound very appealing. For instance, crown and bridge treatment to replace one or more consecutive teeth is effective, but it causes unnecessary damage to surrounding teeth and does not help to preserve gum tissue or jaw bone density. Innovations in dentistry have made dental implants a safe, effective tooth replacement option that restores the entire tooth from the roots up. If you’re missing one or more teeth and want to find out more about dental implant tooth replacement, call Dr. Preetha Thomas of Enclave Dental today.
