You might all too easily overlook the one or two missing teeth you’ve sustained in adulthood. If they’re toward the sides or back, you may not see them as an aesthetic problem. If you still chew and speak fine for now, what difference does it make? You need to be aware that just one missing tooth can offset the entire balance of your mouth and put every other tooth at risk. A gap in your teeth leaves the surrounding teeth susceptible to leaning and losing stability as well as creating a breeding ground for bacteria to fester. We are in full support of tooth replacement in our office and as such, we offer dental implants as the most secure and withstanding support system to any prosthetic we offer. Begin your tooth replacement endeavor with a strong, suitable foundation.
