What Causes Missing Teeth?
When you neglect your oral health and hygiene, plaque can accumulate. This bacteria can then cause gum disease, which can eventually lead to the loss of teeth, if not addressed in early stages. The consequences of poor oral hygiene can go beyond this, making way for tooth decay and, eventually, the need for tooth extraction in order to prevent the infection from spreading to your neighbouring teeth. In addition, trauma caused as a result of sporting injuries and accidents can also cause missing teeth.
If you have missing teeth, it’s important to see a dentist to discuss available treatment options, and we cover more on why doing this as soon as possible is vital further below! Skilled in the art of crafting smiles, our dentists at With U Dental will help determine the best treatment option for you if you have missing teeth that you need to replace.
What Preventative Measures Can I Take to Avoid Missing Teeth
Prevention is always better than cure so here are some preventative measures we recommend keeping in mind to avoid or significantly reduce your risk of losing a tooth.
- Maintain proper oral hygiene by brushing and flossing your teeth daily.
- Be mindful of your diet and decrease excessive consumption of sugar.
- Visit your dentist for a dental checkup every six months.
- Take precautions, such as wearing a mouthguard when engaging in physical activities.
Why Should I Replace My Missing Teeth?
Ignoring the gaps in your smile can seriously affect your remaining natural teeth and overall well-being. For instance, missing teeth may cause your remaining teeth to tilt, affecting the alignment of your smile. This may lead to biting issues, uneven wear and cracks that form along your teeth when chewing, and difficulties cleaning your teeth which makes you more susceptible to tooth decay.
Missing teeth can also lead to bone loss. When your jawbone lacks the required stimulation from your teeth, the jawbone begins to shrink. When your jawbone loses its density, it can alter your facial structure, causing it to sag and lose shape, giving you a sunken facial appearance. It also affects your success rate for future dental work, should you wait too long to restore your smile.
Replacing missing teeth is not just about aesthetics but also about safeguarding your oral health and quality of life. So, don’t leave your missing teeth untreated. Seek prompt care and reclaim your beautiful smile.
Dental Treatments for Missing Teeth
At With U Dental, you can select from a number of different dental solutions to replace your missing teeth. The options that await you at our dental clinic include the following:
Given their reliability and longevity, dental implants are the ideal solution for missing teeth. Inserted into the jawbone, dental implants are artificial tooth roots that fuse with the jawbone, creating a secure foundation for a prosthetic tooth.
Dental bridges are ideal if you are missing more than 3 units of teeth adjacent to each other. With just 2 implants strategically placed on either side of the gap, you will be able to restore 3-4 units of missing teeth.
Also known as implant-supported dentures, this popular tooth replacement option saves you the trouble of loose/uncomfortable dentures. Anchored to dental implants, overdentures are stable, comfortable and secure.
The All-On-4 Concept is a full-arch teeth replacement solution that allows you to restore your entire smile with just 4 strategically placed dental implants. This is a great solution that utilises your existing jaw bone as much as possible.
