Dental Implants for Missing Teeth

Are There Problems from Missing a Tooth?

Yes! Even missing one tooth can cause other problems. When you chew your food without a full set of teeth, you don’t absorb as many nutrients from your meal. Chewing can become difficult with multiple missing teeth, and softer foods may be consumed more often. These are generally higher-calorie, less-nutritious foods that can result in weight gain.

The teeth that are adjacent to missing teeth can loosen and start to shift. Depending on how many teeth you have missing, your face can start to have a hollowed appearance without the support of a full set of teeth and the bone loss that results in your jaw. Altered speech may embarrass you, as well.

We recommend dental implants to replace one or many missing teeth. They look very natural and function just like real teeth. No one will ever be able to tell they are not yours.
