Teeth may have been extracted or be congenitally missing.
Missing teeth can cause functional, bite and aesthetic dental problems. They can affect the appearance and shape of your mouth and your face, the quality of your speech, what and how you eat and your overall sense of well being and confidence.
The supportive bone and gum tissue in most cases is diminished. Adjacent teeth can drift and move into the missing tooth space causing food impaction, tooth cracking, periodontal disease, reduced chewing efficiency, bite and jaw discomfort.
Dental tooth implants with or without other treatment is often an appropriate solution:
- Single tooth implant
- Multiple implants
- All on 4 implant supported bridges
- Full mouth implant rehabilitation
A missing tooth in our smile looks terrible and in most cases will affect social confidence.
Replacing missing teeth in the smile zone with implants, bridges or removable dentures are all possible treatment options.
