Why Is Tooth Loss Such a Big Deal?
Losing a single adult tooth is serious health complication that should never be ignored. All of your permanent teeth support each other, and losing a single one could result in major problems later on. Tooth loss can increase your risk of numerous undesirable conditions; you are also much more likely to lose additional teeth after you have lost the first. Those are just a few of the reasons why it is so important to treat your tooth loss as quickly as possible.
Your First Appointment
Before we come up with a long-term treatment plan, we must determine what has caused the tooth loss. While some patients lose teeth because of acute trauma, this condition is just as often the result of ongoing oral health complications such as gum disease and/or tooth decay. After the underlying issue has been treated, we can then explore all of your options. We might also suggest the use of temporary devices such as removable dentures or bridges. Those devices allow patients to eat and speak with confidence, but they can easily be taken out when it comes time to start a longer-term treatment plan.
Dental implants are one of the most popular treatments for missing teeth, and these devices are more advanced than ever. Removable dentures and bridges are a good temporary fix, but they may not always feel like real teeth. With dental implants, you might completely forget that you are missing one or more adult teeth. These devices are actually attached to your jawbone, and they are held in place with powerful titanium rods. At the end of those rods, we attach custom crowns that look and feel just like real teeth.
