The General Dentist Irving, TX Trusts to Provide Superior Crown & Bridge Replacement

September 1, 2015

happy woman recieve crown & bridge treatment from the general dentist Irving, TX trustsFor patients missing one or more teeth, the worst dental health consequences may not be obvious right away. Some people choose to live with the mild embarrassment of having a missing tooth due to expense or to avoid discomfort, but the most detrimental effects of missing teeth are the unseen consequences taking place below the gum line. Teeth support the health of gum tissue, and stimulate bone density preservation and development. When teeth are missing, soft tissue and bone deteriorate over time. As this deterioration occurs, surrounding teeth shift to fill in spaces leaving the entire smile compromised by one missing tooth. As jawbone density decreases, this prevents the future option of ever getting an implant due to inadequate bone support.   Shifting occlusion due to missing teeth can lead to TMJ disorder, especially in patients who clench or grind the teeth. Cosmetically, multiple missing teeth cause facial sagging or caving in, and leave unsightly gaps in smiles. Whether you’re missing one tooth or a full arch, the experts at 21st Century Dental recommend replacing your teeth to maintain oral health. Call to schedule a smile consultation at our convenient Irving, TX dental practice today.
