Are you ever embarrassed to smile because you’re missing a tooth? Do you have a hard time chewing or making certain sounds because you’re missing a tooth? If you are missing a tooth, you probably know that there are a number of options that could benefit you. Furthermore, we recommend scheduling an appointment with us quickly because missing a tooth can actually cause fairly serious issues.

Would you be surprised to learn that missing a tooth could actually lead to bad breath? Similarly, if you’re missing a pearly white, you’ll struggle to keep your teeth as clean as you should. Unfortunately, this may leave you more susceptible to problems like gum disease and tooth decay. Furthermore, if you have a gap in your smile, your other teeth may also shift.

Luckily, while there are a number of problems you could face, there are also several restoration options that might benefit you. As you may have guessed, different restoration options could be useful for different circumstances. For instance, a dental implant might be useful if you’re interested in an extremely durable option. Dentures are a useful choice for individuals who are interested in replacing several teeth affordably. If you’d like to replace several consecutive teeth, a bridge could be your best option. Regardless of the choice you make, your restoration will help you speak and chew comfortably again.
