Complete Dental Restorations
Filling cavities in your teeth is an obvious and important part of restorative dentistry. Less obvious for your health is the replacement of missing teeth. If you have had teeth missing for a while, you may not realize the importance of having those teeth replaced. As far as you are concerned, you have been getting along fine without them. However, you may not be aware of some of the changes that are happening as a result of those teeth being gone.
When a tooth is missing, the soft tissue around that site begins to shrink and the teeth beside the open space begin to shift. Some may lean into the vacancy, others may start to rotate a little and opposing teeth may change position as well since it does not have another tooth to meet it. When your teeth begin to shift, your bite can be thrown off as your teeth become more and more misaligned. Small gaps in your teeth may begin to appear and these spaces can become food traps making it more difficult for you to keep your teeth clean. Then of course, they become more susceptible to decay.
Intervention with restorative dentistry can mitigate these problems providing you with proper chewing surfaces as well as a nice looking smile. Dentures, implants and implant restorations can take years off your appearance, give you a healthier mouth and allow you to eat healthier more nutritious foods.
