Missing teeth create gaps in our smiles, affect our oral health, and can even change the shape of your face. At Advantage Dentistry in Kenmore, NY, we have several options available for tooth replacement. Read on to learn more about why it is important to replace your missing teeth.
Teeth are what allow us to eat, speak, smile, and they give our jaws structure. When a tooth goes missing, the bone tissue around that area begins to deteriorate. This can change the shape of the jaw and facial structure if there are multiple teeth missing. In the case where there is only one tooth missing, the other teeth will begin to shift towards that open space. This creates gaps in other areas. The gaps affect the look of your smile and become places where bacteria and other debris can hide. A major change in your teeth can affect the way you eat and speak.
At our Kenmore, NY office, we have dental implants, mini dental implants, dentures, and bridges available for tooth replacement. Your dentist will help you decide which option is best for you.
