The Dangers of Having a Missing Tooth

Your teeth work together with your jaw in an intricate system that affects your diet, your physical health, and the overall structure of your face. Even a single missing tooth can cause serious issues for your dental health as well as your physical health. Here are just some of the problems that can occur when a tooth is missing:

  • Pain in jaw muscles and bones
  • Pain in facial muscles
  • Jaw bone begins to weaken/decay
  • Gums pull away from teeth, exposing roots to bacteria and disease
  • Face is unsupported and starts to sag, creating early appearance of aging
  • Improper Bite
  • Teeth tilt or collapse toward the empty socket.
  • Make dental hygiene more difficult
  • Spreading of infection or tooth decay to other teeth
  • Teeth that are above or below may start to shift into the empty spot, creating more pain and issues for remaining teeth.

The Dental Bridge

A dental bridge replaces the missing tooth with a custom-made restoration that is carefully anchored to neighboring teeth for support.

These restorations look beautiful, feel comfortable and can last a long time. Plus, they are very easy to care for, just treat them like you do your natural teeth. Dental bridges are a wonderful option when a tooth or a couple of teeth are missing. Our patients love how natural their dental bridges look and feel; it’s like having a brand new smile.
