In today’s world, having a beautiful smile is practically part of the everyday dress code. Unfortunately, at least one in ten people across North America suffers from multiple broken or missing teeth. People who have lost or need to replace missing teeth due to periodontal disease, tooth decay, or trauma face many unwanted challenges and dental concerns.
Missing teeth can create issues such as difficulty chewing, speech pattern changes, and a negative impact on personal self-confidence. The simple fact is both missing teeth and broken teeth can have a significant impact on your social and professional life.
Dr. Robert Gauthier treats patients with missing teeth in Northborough, MA. He helps his patients restore the look and function of their smiles.
The Importance of Replacing Missing Teeth
Excluding wisdom teeth, you (along with every other adult) have 28 teeth that are designed to work together as a complete system. Removing one tooth from that system without replacing it can have a variety of negative consequences. Much like an arch, if you remove the keystone the arch collapses.
Likewise, if you are missing teeth, your surrounding teeth will collapse or tilt off their natural axis – creating an uneven, unattractive smile. You will also develop bite problems and increase your risk of gum deterioration.
