Why Replacing Missing Teeth is Crucial

Missing teeth can have long-term effects for your oral health and overall well-being. Whether you’ve lost a tooth due to injury, decay, or other dental issues, it’s essential to seek prompt treatment to replace the missing tooth and restore your smile. Our team offers comprehensive tooth replacement solutions to help you maintain optimal oral health and function.

A Missing Tooth Affects the Surrounding Teeth

When a tooth is lost, it can affect more than just your appearance. The surrounding teeth may shift out of position, leading to misalignment and bite problems. This can contribute to uneven wear, jaw pain, and difficulty chewing and speaking. Additionally, missing teeth can cause bone loss in the jaw, which can weaken the surrounding bone structure and increase the risk of further tooth loss.

Preserve Your Oral Health

Replacing missing teeth is crucial for preserving your oral health and preventing these complications. Manhattan Dental Care Studio offers several tooth replacement options to suit your individual needs, including dental implants, bridges, and dentures. Dental implants are the premier choice in tooth replacement noptions, providing a permanent and stable solution that looks and functions like natural teeth.

During a dental implant procedure, a titanium implant is surgically placed into the jawbone to serve as a secure foundation for a lifelike dental crown. This restores both the appearance and function of the missing tooth, allowing you to smile, eat, and speak confidently. Dental implants also help stimulate the jawbone, preventing bone loss and preserving facial structure.

In addition to dental implants, we offer bridges and dentures as alternative tooth replacement options. Bridges consist of artificial teeth anchored to adjacent natural teeth or dental implants, while dentures are removable prosthetic devices that replace multiple missing teeth. Our team can assess your oral health and discuss the best treatment plan for you. 

Don’t let missing teeth compromise your oral health and quality of life. If you’re missing one or more teeth, schedule a consultation with Manhattan Dental Care Studio to explore your tooth replacement options.
