Losing your teeth can have a serious impact on your physical and psychological health. Periodontal disease, tooth decay, trauma, and other conditions can cause tooth loss. This results in changes to the tissues that surround your teeth and adversely affects your self-image. But there are some things that you can do to restore your smile.

In case you have missing teeth, talking to your dentist about the different options for tooth replacement may be a good idea. Even though you can’t get your tooth back, you still have a chance to return a beautiful smile with a variety of different procedures.
- Dentures. A traditional option for a large number of missing teeth. A disadvantage is the difficulty they create for speaking and eating in comparison to some of the other options.
- Bridges. This option involves preparation of the neighboring teeth and using them to support a prosthetic device, which contains a fake tooth over the space of the missing one. After an impression is taken and sent to a lab, they are made and attached to your teeth.
- Implants. Probably the most popular type of tooth replacement, due to its great aesthetic appearance. It also provides a better distribution of the pressure created during eating to the surrounding tissues. The procedure takes more time and effort but produces the best results.
Having a missing tooth can discourage you from smiling. It can also cause degenerative changes in your dentition as a result of uneven distribution of the chewing force created while you eat. A situation like this can make you feel self-conscious, but not for long. Asking your dentist about options for tooth replacement can help restore your beautiful smile and bring back some confidence in your life.
