Missing teeth can be replaced with dental treatments that make eating more comfortable and restore your smile.

When you have missing teeth, eating and speech can be more difficultand it can cause you to be self-conscious about your smile. Gaps between your teeth can augment the risks of oral health problems if they are not replaced.

What issues can missing teeth cause?

  • Increased stress on other teeth
  • Reduction of biting force
  • Difficulty chewing and eating some foods
  • Increased risk of gum disease
  • Oral hygiene issues

In addition, adjacent teeth can tilt or move into the empty space. For these reasons, at Precinct Dental, we recommend replacing missing teeth as soon as possible.

During your consultation, your dentist will advise you on the treatment option that is right for you. The treatment will depend on the number and position of your missing teeth as well as the condition of your gums and jawbone.

Treatments to replace missing teeth and restore your smile include:

A dental bridge

A bridge replaces a missing tooth and is supported and fixed in place between healthy teeth on either side of the gap.

Dentures

Removable partial or full dentures can replace several missing teeth to maintain your bite and give you a new smile.

A dental implant

Dental implants can be a long-lasting option to replace missing teeth if your gums and jawbone are healthy.  Implants are titanium inserts that are permanently fixed to the jawbone. The insert supports a dental crown which takes the same shape and aspect as the missing tooth.
