Not many years ago, losing a tooth left you with few options for replacement. While permanent teeth should provide a lifetime of function, it doesn’t always end up that way. They may be lost from an accident, decay, or gum disease, among other causes.
Since teeth start as a full set, even one missing tooth may affect the whole structure of your mouth’s delicate alignment. As teeth slowly lean and migrate, wear and cracking from excessive forces often create escalating problems.
When it’s time to replace missing teeth — whether it’s one or a full set — several options are available to you. Dental implants often give you the best opportunity to enjoy normal chewing and a full smile, although other options deserve consideration.
We know it’s not always easy for you to sort through the complicated possibilities. Dr. Edmond’s background in restorative dentistry allows her to develop solutions for every situation, so don’t hesitate to call today and set up an initial consultation.
