Think that senior adults are the only ones to suffer from tooth loss? If so, think again. There is no age requirement for struggling with an incomplete smile. Trauma, tooth decay, and gum disease can all cause tooth loss. If unaddressed, some dental issues including gum disease can even cause total loss of teeth. Fortunately, if you have lost a tooth, you don’t have to settle for an incomplete smile. Modern dental prostheses can help to restore the smile securely, so you can get back to smiling confidently and comfortably!

Completing the smile using a dental prostheses can also help to restore the functionality of your smile, by improving your ability to chew effectively and comfortably. Dental prostheses also help to prevent remaining teeth from shifting out of alignment, which can create a whole host of dental issues, including problems chewing, teeth grinding and jaw pain.

Plus, modern dental restorations can be carefully designed to look and feel natural, allowing for confidence and comfort, which are both important. Partial and full dentures, for instance, can provide fast and affordable solutions for addressing a missing tooth or several teeth.
