Why You Need To Replace Missing Teeth
Aesthetics: Missing teeth can affect the appearance of your smile. Patients who are missing teeth may suffer from a lack of confidence and tend to hide their teeth when smiling. At Perkins Dentistry we believe that every patient should have a smile they are proud of.
Oral Health: When patients are missing teeth they may have an increased risk of developing gum disease, infection, and further tooth loss. When a tooth falls out, the bone that supported the teeth begins to deteriorate. As the bone deteriorates, the face may loose volume and appear sunken. Missing teeth can also affect your bite, which can contribute to TMJ disorder.
Function: When you are missing teeth it can hinder your ability to chew, which can make eating uncomfortable and even embarrassing for some patients. Your ability to speak can also be affected by missing teeth. Certain words or sounds may become challenging to pronounce depending on the location of your missing teeth.
