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.
