Single Tooth Replacement Options

When you lose a tooth, the crown is not the only thing missing. You have also lost the root. As a result, your jawbone deteriorates because it is not stimulated in that area anymore. Over time, your adjacent teeth won’t have enough support to stay in place, so they drift toward the open space. This creates alignment problems that increase your risk of tooth decay and gum disease. As more time passes, your teeth may eventually become loose and fall out.

As you lose more teeth, it will be difficult to maintain a balanced diet because many foods become too difficult to chew. Now, you may experience nutritional deficiencies that harm your general health. Your facial tissues will also lose support, making you look years older than your true age.

Your dentist in Angier, Dr. Gong can help preserve your smile by filling the empty space.
