The Importance of Teeth

Teeth play an important role in the beauty of your mouth when we smile for photos, laugh with friends or talk to those we love. But they also have functional roles that help maintain oral and overall health, such as eating, chewing and biting our favorite foods. When someone has missing teeth, it can negatively influence your oral function and emotional wellbeing. Large spaces between teeth impact the smile’s aesthetics and the ability to speak clearly. Even teeth that can’t be seen when smiling affect dental function and can make it difficult to chew foods comfortably and thoroughly. Without stimulation of the tooth root, the jaw bone will resorb and in instances of severe tooth loss, this resorption process can drastically change facial appearance. Missing teeth can also affect the positioning of remaining teeth, leading to changes in occlusion, or how your bite fits together. But above all, missing teeth has psychological effects, leading to a loss of self-confidence and sense of personal wellbeing.

The Causes of Tooth Loss

Missing teeth can be a result of many factors, some of which are from conditions out of your control. The most common factors include gum disease, extraction, and dental trauma. If you have one or more missing teeth, many options exist, but dental implants are the only solution that can replace the function and beauty of natural teeth with long-term results.

What Are Dental Implants?

Dental implants replace the function of tooth roots and are restored with dental crowns to match natural teeth in appearance and strength. Dental implants are made of unique, biocompatible materials that fuse to the jaw bone, creating a stable foundation similar to natural teeth. Unlike partial and full dentures, dental implants are fixed in the jaw bone and can replace any number of missing teeth with greater functional and aesthetic improvements. The dental implant process includes both a surgical and restorative portion that requires precise treatment planning and the experience of trained dentists. As dentists trained in the science and artistry of implant dentistry, we approach your care from an aesthetic point, but prioritize occlusion to ensure the health of your teeth and their function long-term. If you have one or more missing teeth, dental implants may be the solution for you!
