Do you have missing teeth that are affecting your ability to chew and speak, diminishing your daily quality of life?
Missing teeth, even just one, can lead to complex dental problems and have a detrimental effect overall oral health. When a tooth is lost, a chain reaction is set into motion: the jaw bone in the area of the lost tooth begins to shrink and affect the bite, periodontal disease can take hold and remaining teeth begin to shift position.
Replacing a lost tooth, or teeth, quickly is important for maintaining a healthy, functional smile that enables you to enjoy a good quality of life each day.
