At Smiles by Holsinger & Higgins, we are nothing without our patients. We love when we hear from our patients, and they give feedback about a treatment they received. We recently had the pleasure of receiving a letter from one of our patients. She visited Dr. Holsinger, and he restored her oral health with dentures. Be sure to read her words in the attached letter. As you can see, she is so grateful for the dentures she received and feels like her life is changed. It can be a frustrating feeling when you are not able to eat properly and are unhappy with the state of your teeth and oral health. This patient is now able to smile confidently and eat what she chooses.

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.

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.
