Missing Tooth

Your smile’s condition and attractiveness!

You are not alone if you lack teeth. Around 20 percent of us are even born without one or more permanent teeth, and the majority of people lose at least one permanent tooth throughout their lives. Our tooth replacement dentists at Dentist Paramus provide patients of all ages high-quality, cosy options.

The most frequent reasons of missing teeth include gum disease, trauma, genetics, and dental rot. If unattended, missing teeth can affect your ability to chew and communicate, cause bone loss and other health problems, and lower your self-esteem in general. Thankfully, we offer powerful procedures like bridges, dentures, and dental implants that may restore your smile as well as your oral health and self-confidence!

Why you should consider a tooth replacement

If you’re missing a tooth or multiple teeth, opting for a professional replacement can offer life-changing results. Missing teeth not only impact your confidence but can also lead to a number of potential health problems down the line, including:

• Bone loss – Missing teeth can cause the surrounding jaw bone to deteriorate, leading to changes in facial structure and jaw pain.

• Crooked teeth – When you lose a tooth, the surrounding teeth may try to shift to accommodate the open space; this can lead to misaligned teeth that are harder to clean.

• Gum disease – Missing teeth leave the underlying gum exposed; this makes it easier for harmful bacteria to inflame the gumline.

• Affected speech – It’s not uncommon for missing teeth to impact the way you pronounce words over time.

We’ll work with you to understand your needs and concerns and help you find the right tooth replacement treatment for you. We want to help you build your self-esteem and protect your dental health for years to come.

Treatments for missing teeth

At Dentist Engelwood, we’re dedicated to providing quality care for all patients. If you’re missing a tooth or multiple teeth, we can provide you with long-lasting, high-quality restorations to improve your smile and your confidence.

• Traditional implants – We’ll utilise cutting-edge 3D imaging to place an excellent implant that will behave and appear just like a genuine tooth.

• Implant-supported dentures – Implant-supported dentures, a great option for people missing many teeth, entail putting dental implants and fastening a denture on top to give your mouth a more natural appearance and structural strength.

• Bone grafting – We may suggest bone grafting if you are losing bone as a result of your missing teeth in order to improve the strength, structure, and aesthetics of your teeth and jaw.

• Bridges – To restore the structure, strength, and aesthetics of your teeth and jaw if you have lost bone density as a consequence of tooth loss, we may suggest bone grafting.

What can I do to prevent losing teeth in the future?

While missing teeth can be caused by genetic factors and other things outside of your control, there are some behavioral and lifestyle changes you can make to limit the risk of losing a tooth:

• Eat a healthy, unprocessed diet and avoid overly acidic or difficult-to-eat foods

• Practice consistent daily dental hygiene by brushing and flossing daily

• Visit us for regular cleanings and exams

• Affected speech – It’s not uncommon for missing teeth to impact the way you pronounce words over time.

• Avoid smoking

• Take care of your overall health and well-being, especially if you suffer from diabetes or other chronic health conditions
