Missing teeth are compromising your oral health. At Parklane Family Dentistry, we can help you get back on track by providing restorative solutions for your missing teeth. We offer a variety of options to restore your smile and your oral health.
What you may not realize when you have teeth missing, is that it could be affecting your overall health as well without dental treatments. Chewing surface is lost when back teeth are missing. This is important to note, because in order for the nutrients in food to be used optimally, the food needs to be well chewed or masticated. When you have teeth missing, you cannot chew your food adequately. This, in turn, means you may not be getting all the nutrients the food offers. It also means it is not as easily digested because larger pieces of food take longer to break down in your system.
Additionally, teeth next to the spaces begin to rotate and move out of alignment. Over time, this could lead to small gaps forming between your other teeth, creating food traps. These areas become difficult to clean, leading to plaque and tartar buildup. After a while, gingivitis becomes an issue, and if it is not addressed, you could wind up with periodontal disease.
Complete Dental Restorations
Parklane Family Dentistry offers complete dental restorations. Consult with Dr. Vashisht to find out what solution is most favorable for your circumstances. You may benefit from removable dentures. If you only have one tooth missing, a dental implant may be the best solution. Dental implant restorations can make it possible for you to have a bridge or to have your dentures stabilized.
