If you are missing a tooth, there are many reasons to replace it!
- A gap between your teeth when you smile or speak may be a cosmetic concern .
- Missing teeth may affect the way you speak and chew.
- If a missing tooth is not replaced, the teeth around it can move. Harmful plaque and tartar can form in new hard-to-reach places. Over time, this may lead to tooth decay and periodontal (gum) diseases .
- Bone loss can occur in the region of the missing tooth.
