Replacing Missing Teeth in Noosa

woman with new denturesIf you need to have a tooth or multiple teeth extracted, it is crucial to consider replacing those teeth. When a tooth is removed, the bone that previously surrounded and supported the tooth can deteriorate over time. This can lead to jawbone loss and changes in the shape of your face, making you look older. Dental implants are particularly effective in preserving bone structure as they mimic the natural tooth root and stimulate bone growth.

Here are some other reasons why it’s crucial to replace missing teeth:

Maintaining Oral Function

A missing tooth can significantly impact your ability to speak clearly, chew effectively, and bite properly. This can result in digestive issues and nutritional deficiencies. By replacing the missing tooth with a prosthetic option, you can restore these functions and improve your overall quality of life.

Preventing Teeth Shifting

When a tooth is absent, neighbouring teeth may start to shift or tilt into the gap, causing misalignment issues, bite problems, and potential crowding. Replacing the missing tooth with a bridge, implant, or denture helps maintain proper tooth alignment and bite.

Enhancing Aesthetics

A missing tooth can have a negative effect on your smile and facial appearance, which can impact your self-esteem and self-confidence. Dental prosthetics like dental implants or bridges can provide a natural-looking replacement, improving your smile and overall appearance.

Long-Term Cost Savings

Although there may be an initial cost to replace a missing tooth, investing in your dental health can lead to long-term cost savings. Treatment to address complications that arise from leaving a gap untreated can be more expensive compared to proactively replacing the missing tooth.

A Higher Quality of Life

Having a complete set of teeth enhances your overall quality of life, allowing you to smile with greater confidence, eat with ease, and speak clearly.
