Maintaining the Mouth’s Structural Integrity

A common misconception is: When a tooth is gone, especially where no one can see it, that it doesn’t need to be replaced. The simple truth is, if you have a missing tooth anywhere in your mouth, you really do need to replace it, counsels Dr. Bruce Fine of Fine Dental Care in Wayne.

“Itʼs like taking a link out of a chain. It creates a domino effect. Once a tooth is missing, the teeth on that side of the mouth begin to slowly drift, tilt and fall into that space, causing the other teeth to separate. These spaces and tilted teeth put you at a much higher risk of getting cavities, gum disease, TMJ imbalance, and for losing more teeth.”

Dental Implants: The Modern Solution to Tooth Loss
Over the course of a lifetime, the cost of replacing a missing tooth is far less than the cost of repairing or replacing multiple diseased teeth, and unfortunately many people wait until itʼs too late. But there is hope for someone who notices these problems in their mouth and acts on it.

Todayʼs modern, effective approach is a dental implant. It can last a lifetime with no further worries about getting cavities or root canals, or any of the problems associated with natural teeth. Modern dentistry offers many options to correct the problems associated with missing teeth, tilted teeth, and spaces between teeth.
