Why Replace Missing Teeth?
If missing teeth are not replaced it can create a wide range of problems. Teeth neighboring the space may shift which can cause crowding, spacing, uneven bites, TMJ problems (painful problems with the jaw joints) and periodontal (gum) disease. It can also affect your speech and overall health!
Once a tooth is lost, the jaw bone beings to lose bone and shrink. You can lose up to 60% of your jaw bone in the first 2 years after a tooth is removed! The longer this condition is left untreated the more problems you may have including additional teeth loss and ill-fitting dentures. You may also experience difficulty eating and chewing your food, affecting your overall quality of life. The longer a person waits to find a remedy to this problem, any chance they have of getting a successful dental restoration is greatly diminished.
The best time to replace a tooth is right after it’s been lost! Usually placing a dental implant within 2 to 3 months following tooth removal will prevent many of the problems associated with jaw bone loss. Sometimes, if the tooth is being lost because of gum disease and bone loss, it may be necessary to help recreate the jaw bone with bone grafting material prior to placing dental implants. If you have lost teeth you can get help. Contact Dr. Mike Maroon of Advanced Dental for a free consultation so that he can discuss the remedies to get you a healthy, confident smile.
