Is it necessary to replace my missing teeth?
The sooner you replace your missing teeth, the better.Missing teeth can lead to a whole range of oral health and health concerns. Left untreated, missing teeth lead to bone recession and jaw deterioration. Eventually, your face may begin to look sunken in and make you look prematurely aged. Missing teeth increase your chance of developing gum disease, additional tooth loss, and misalignment of teeth. Leaving teeth missing may also begin to negatively affect your personal life, making it difficult to speak, chew or lead to embarrassment. Dental implant secured dental restorations are the most natural feeling and looking missing tooth replacement option.
