Why Should You Replace Missing Teeth?

Why Should You Replace Missing Teeth?

Are you missing one or more teeth? Do you want to renew your self-confidence as well as your oral health?

Replacing missing teeth not only looks aesthetically pleasing, but can benefit your oral health in the long-run. Teeth may shift and overcrowd when there are gaps between teeth. Overcrowding makes it more difficult to clean teeth, which can result in infection.

Having durable solutions for missing teeth allows for restored function. Patients with missing teeth may find it more difficult to bite and chew normally, so a more balanced bite makes it easier to use teeth. Missing teeth treatments are custom-fit for patient’s comfort and are color-matched to blend in with natural teeth.

Treatment Options for Missing Teeth

These treatment options can improve teeth and gums as well as the natural aesthetic of your smile:

Dental Implants

This durable treatment option utilizes titanium posts which integrate with bone tissue in the jaw. After a healing period of 3 to 6 months, the posts are capped off with an abutment and dental crown. The dental crown is custom made to match natural teeth.

Dental Bridges

Are you missing multiple consecutive teeth? Dental bridges may be the right choice for you. Dental bridges can be secured with dental implants and also can use adjacent teeth as support.


Patients with arches of missing teeth can benefit from removable or implant-secured dentures. This solution is an especially stable option when used with dental implants because they are made of durable titanium posts.
