The gap left from a missing tooth can be more than just a cosmetic inconvenience. Missing teeth often make chewing, drinking, and speaking more difficult in addition to hindering your smile. When left untreated, a missing tooth can also increase your risk for developing more complicated and serious oral health problems, including jawbone loss, movement or migration of your existing teeth, and even a gradual shift in your facial structure. Thanks to recent advancements in dental technology, solutions to replace a single missing tooth can restore the integrity — as well as the beauty — of your smile.
