Missing Several Teeth?Posted on: August 9, 2013
Attractive, natural-looking teeth help us look and feel our best. They let us enjoy the foods we love. And they allow us to be naturally conﬁdent where it really counts: at home, on the job, or on the playing ﬁeld, but especially on the inside.
Why you shouldn’t ignore missing teeth.
The loss or damage of even a single tooth can have a considerable impact on everyday life and self-esteem. People lose their teeth for many reasons. Sometimes due to an accident, or illness. Other people simply inherit poor teeth.
Whatever the reasons, the consequences can have a negative impact on your quality of life. You may no longer eat many of the foods you once enjoyed. Self-conscious about your appearance, you may even stop laughing and smiling spontaneously.
Fortunately, modern dentistry offers a variety of ways to restore damaged teeth or replace missing teeth.

What are replacement teeth?

Dental implants serve as artiﬁcial roots, ﬁrmly anchored into the jawbone, that support ﬁxed or removable tooth replacements.
When are implants appropriate?
When one tooth or several teeth are missing, or when the whole jaw is completely without teeth. Various treatment processes and implant solutions are available.

Has your facial silhouette changed?
