What Happens if I Do Nothing?
Your teeth are made to work as a complete set. When even one tooth is missing, the forces of your bite are not distributed correctly, and it could lead to trouble chewing. Other potential side effects of missing teeth include:
- Chronic headaches
- A crooked smile (as a result of your remaining teeth drifting into the gap)
- Bone loss and gum recession
- Gum disease and tooth decay due to bacteria growing in the pockets formed by gum recession
A bridge can fill in a single gap, but it can also be used to replace multiple teeth in a row. The restoration is made by attaching two dental crowns to either side of one or more prosthetic teeth. The crowns are then placed on top of healthy teeth on either side of the empty space. Bridges are typically made from ceramic material that can be shaded and designed to fit in with your smile as naturally as possible.
Dentures & Partial Dentures
Full dentures are used when most or all the teeth in your upper or lower jaw are missing while partial dentures are customized so that they can fill in multiple gaps. Both kinds of dentures are normally made of acrylic and consist of a gum-colored base that supports several prosthetic teeth. However, full dentures are held on the gums through suction (or with an adhesive) while partial dentures are secured by a metal clasp.
Bridges and dentures are effective, but they also need to be replaced periodically; if you’re looking for a more permanent solution for missing teeth, dental implants are typically the ideal choice. A titanium post is fused with your jawbone to act as support for your false tooth or teeth. This is the only type of restoration that can help prevent bone loss, and they can last for decades at a time with good oral hygiene and regular checkups.
