A Nuisance No One Should Tolerate

missing and broken tooth

Missing and broken teeth are a common problem. Fortunately, they also one of the more easily treated dental problems, especially with advances in bridge, denture, and implant technology. Most people who seek treatment for missing or broken teeth addressing issues with their front teeth. This area is frequently known as the smile zone. Other patients who are missing molars or other teeth that are not readily evident in the smile zone often tolerate and live with the problem.

Dr. Zadeh, a Fellow at the International Congress of Oral Implantology, specializes in restoring smiles by replacing missing teeth. His preferred method is using dental implants. While bridges and dentures are still popular options, implants are the most natural-looking and convenient solution. Over time, implants will eventually become a part of your body.

While we can live easily without some of our teeth, it is highly recommended you seek treatment. Missing teeth can be negative for the long term health of your mouth. Your teeth are necessary for maintaining both a healthy and youthful appearance and for the health of your jaw and other teeth. Once a tooth is lost, bone degeneration, especially if you lost the tooth to gum disease, is a very real possibility. The longer you wait, the more extensive treatment may have to be to repair the damage. Your other teeth may also shift, ruining cosmetic and orthodontic dental work, and may even fall out! This is why if you have a missing or broken tooth, it is is very important to get it fixed in a timely manner.

Many potential patients turn away from treatment or seek cheap implants and replacement teeth because they are afraid of the cost. This should not deter you, as frequently, insurance may cover part of the cost. A missing tooth is readily recognized as a health problem due to the effects that lost teeth can have on the overall health of your mouth.
