Each one of the teeth in our mouths serve a different purpose. Together, all of the teeth in mouth work as one unit in order to provide structure and support to the mouth. When a tooth is lost or extracted due to decay, the cohesive unit is weakened. This can lead to a number of dental concerns that could ultimately impact speech and even your physical appearance.
Loss of one or more teeth can also result in an increased risk of tooth decay as the remaining teeth shift into the unoccupied space beside them.
Restorative dentistry, in the form of dental implants, offers a great solution to missing teeth. Dental implants can be used to replace missing teeth, and can also be used to secure bridges and full-arch dentures.
If your smile is missing one or more of your teeth, you should consider implant-supported restoration solutions.
