Advancements in dentistry provide easier solutions for restoring a person’s oral health. Today, there are several options for restoration. From wireless braces to replacing teeth with titanium implants, the art of oral dentistry has come a long way.
Problems That Happen If You Don’t Replace The Missing Tooth/Teeth
By not replacing a missing tooth or teeth, you risk serious oral health problems, such as:
A missing molar makes it harder to chew
Your remaining teeth can shift
Bone loss can occur around the missing tooth
Loss of teeth and bone can make your face sag
Implants are being utilized to replace from one tooth to an entire mouthful of teeth. They become the anchor for replacement teeth. They’re as strong as your original teeth. They feel natural, don’t break, and the color matches the rest of your teeth.
Avoiding Costly Dental Repairs
The American Dental Association (ADA) recommends these tips to keep your smile healthy and bright:
Brush your teeth twice a day with a fluoride toothpaste
Clean between your teeth daily.
Eat a healthy diet that limits sugary beverages and snacks
See your dentist regularly for prevention and treatment
