WHY REPLACE MISSING TEETH?
Your teeth work together like a finely tuned machine, and losing even one tooth could be the start of serious problems if it isn’t replaced promptly. This booklet shows you what can be done to fill in the gaps in your smile.

Tooth loss has many causes: decay, gum disease, and injuries are the most common. Missing teeth detract from your appearance and make eating and speaking more difficult, and the strain on your remaining teeth invites more tooth loss. The common options for preventing these problems are bridges, dentures, and implants.
EFFECTS OF TOOTH LOSS
Teeth shift so that the upper teeth no longer mesh with the lower ones. Chewing is difficult as well, and teeth may be sore.
Plaque builds up more easily as teeth crowd together, increasing the risk of decay and gum disease.
If back teeth are lost, lips and cheeks can sink into vacant spaces, making you look older.
