Missing Teeth

A missing tooth can adversely affect the natural beauty of your smile, the structure of your profile and your ability to chew and speak.

If you have a missing tooth, it is important to discuss your options for replacing it with your dentist as soon as possible.

If my missing tooth doesn’t bother me, is there any reason to replace it?

Every tooth has a role in your mouth, so it is important to replace a missing tooth as soon as possible. A missing tooth can do more than impact your smile. Other consequences include:

  • Poor aesthetics
  • Embarrassment about the gap in your smile
  • Loss of jawbone which affects your facial structure
  • Reduced biting force
  • Difficulty chewing and speaking
  • Shifting teeth impact your bite and are difficult to clean
  • Grinding and clenching

What options do you offer for missing teeth?

At Etwall Dental Practice we offer several options for replacing missing teeth such as implants, bridges, and dentures. The option you choose will depend on the number of missing teeth, and the condition of your remaining teeth, gums and jawbone.
