Best Options For Replacing Missing Teeth

Last month, we wrote about the importance of replacing missing teeth. As we explained, it is important to replace missing teeth to keep the teeth from shifting, to help the jawbone stay intact, and to ensure that the surrounding teeth do not become damaged. We also replace teeth to help chew food better so we can eat whatever we want, not just soft foods. Chewing food well will help the digestive system to be healthy. Teeth are needed to properly pronounce words and speak clearly, think of a six year old that is lisping after losing their front baby teeth. Replacing missing teeth help us eat well, speak well, look good, and be healthier by supporting healthy digestion and our immune system.

Three Important Reasons To Replace Missing Teeth

Have you recently learned that you need to have a tooth extracted and are unsure if the tooth should be replaced? There can be many reasons a tooth needs to be extracted, such as decay, injury, trauma, and medical conditions. No matter the reason for the extraction, a missing tooth can leave patients feeling self-conscious, especially if the area is visible when talking or smiling. Patients who are missing a front tooth are extremely eager to choose a tooth replacement option as soon as possible. Hesitation occurs when the missing tooth is a rear molar and not visible. We want to encourage patients with any missing teeth, no matter the location, to discuss a tooth replacement option with our team as soon as possible to avoid lasting damage to your oral health.

We Are Always Improving!

Our dentists and our entire team are passionate about continuing education opportunities to provide our patients with the latest and greatest knowledge and practices to assist with their oral health and overall well-being. We recently had the opportunity for our dental team to travel to Lexington, KY to attend a training at The American Academy of Craniofacial Pain. We learned valuable information and techniques to improve the care we offer. Read on to learn more about this training and how it can affect your care.

Flossing Is Your Friend

From the time of your early youth, you have learned about the importance of brushing your teeth a minimum of twice daily. Did you know that using dental floss every day is just as important as brushing your teeth? Most of our patients have dental floss at home, but when asked if it is used on a daily basis, many patients admit that it is only used on occasion to remove a pesky piece of leftover food. We are here to tell you that floss is your friend and can help save your teeth from decay and costly repairs.
