You may not realize how important your teeth are to your overall health. But, let us assure you that they are!
Why should you replace missing teeth?
Living with missing teeth can affect things like speech, bite, eating choices and habits. When you begin to rely on the teeth you do have, you are also increasing the likelihood that they will get damaged sooner than they need to! When your teeth try to compensate for missing teeth you may experience jaw pain, as well as headaches, shifting of teeth, and eventually additional tooth loss.
Tooth loss can be a serious issue that not only affects your health, but also your physical appearance. Your jawbone will eventually begin to deteriorate, which can lead to the loss of your jawbone structure, resulting in the shrunken appearance of your jawline.
Tooth Replacement Options
There are a variety of temporary options such as Dentures or a Fixed Bridge. But, you can also consider the more comfortable and more permanent solution of Dental Implants. Schedule a consultation with Dr. Del Vecchio to discuss the solution that’s right for you.
