Do not let missing teeth hold you back from enjoying life and sharing your smile. Missing teeth are far more than a cosmetic concern and should be addressed as soon as possible by Dr. James Furgurson. Our Chapel Hill, NC dentist office offers state of the art dental technology for quality dental restorations and tooth replacement options.
Why Replace Missing Teeth
Replacing your missing teeth will benefit your oral health and the health of your entire body. Replacing missing teeth can deter the development of infection, gum disease, bone loss, and further tooth loss.
All of your teeth work together to support the structure of your jaw. One even one tooth is missing, the bone can begin to deteriorate without that support. The more teeth missing, the more prominent the bone deterioration can be. Replacing missing teeth helps to support the health of your remaining teeth.
It also helps to keep an infection from developing in the empty root canal that could spread and cause gum disease. Gum disease is linked to systemic diseases such as cardiovascular disease and Alzheimer’s.
Replacing your missing teeth will also allow you to eat a more nutritious and balanced diet. Many people with missing teeth find it difficult to eat healthy raw foods like fruits and vegetables, and their diet may begin to deteriorate. With today’s technology, missing teeth replacements are better than ever, allowing for natural looking and comfortable solutions.
