Are you ever slow to smile because of a missing tooth? Do you have a difficult time eating or making certain sounds? If you are missing a tooth, you may know that there are many different options that could help you deal with your issues. Furthermore, if you are suffering from any of these issues, you may want to schedule an appointment with us quickly because missing a tooth can and will eventually cause fairly serious issues.

Did you know that missing a tooth could actually lead to bad breath? In fact, if you are missing any of your teeth, you may struggle to keep your other teeth as clean as you should. This may leave you more vulnerable to problems such as tooth decay and gum disease. Furthermore, if you have a gap caused by a missing tooth in your smile, your other teeth will start to shift.

Fortunately, while there are many problems you could face with a missing tooth, there are also several dental restoration options you may want to consider. As you may have also guessed, these different restoration options may be useful for different kinds of circumstances. For example, a dental implant could be useful if you’re looking for an extremely durable option. Dentures, or partial dentures, may also be a useful choice for people who are interested in replacing several missing teeth affordably. If you would like to replace multiple missing teeth, a dental bridge could be another option. Regardless of the choice you make, your dental restoration will help you chew and speak more comfortably.
