Having missing teeth can rob you of your smile along with your self-confidence, as well as your ability to enjoy and properly digest your favorite foods. But those are far from the only consequences. Without proper treatment, the loss of bone and potential harm to your gums and your other teeth can also occur.
The prosthodontists at the offices of Tiger Periodontics and Dental Implants advise our patients that prompt treatment to replace a missing tooth or teeth is crucial in restoring their oral health. We are experts at determining which method is the most optimal in each specific case and can provide the latest options in the comfort of our office. These include removable partial dentures, fixed dental prostheses known as bridges, and dental implants placed directly into the empty space.
The wisdom teeth, upper lateral incisors, and second premolars/bicuspids tend to be the most common missing teeth. There are myriad reasons for their loss, including gum disease, decay, or an injury. Genetics also can come into play, resulting in some people being born without certain teeth. Regardless of the cause, the results are the same: The surrounding teeth will shift and move into the empty space over time, disrupting their function and negatively affecting jaw support.
Why see our prosthodontists? We are specialists with advanced training for conditions like this, and our office is fully equipped with state-of-the-art techniques and treatments to restore the look, feel, and function of your teeth.
The prosthodontists at the offices of Tiger Periodontics and Dental Implants advise our patients that putting off replacing a missing tooth or teeth needlessly puts them at risk for developing more serious and costly problems later on. Let our attentive, friendly and highly trained staff restore your smile, your self-confidence, and your oral health. Don’t hesitate to contact our office today to schedule an appointment.
