Why replace damaged or missing teeth
It is important to address tooth loss and damage for a number of different reasons. Damaged teeth can cause further complications to the surrounding teeth, the soft tissue and the jawbone. The infection can spread through the bloodstream and affect the teeth located near the damaged tooth, as well as the jawbone, can deteriorate if the infection spreads. Damaged teeth can also be extremely painful and hinder your oral function.
Missing teeth can damage the jawbone as the bone lacks the stimulation it may need to retain its current density. Tooth loss can also cause the surrounding teeth to shift out of place to accommodate for the new gap in your smile. In addition to these concerns, tooth loss can be damaging to the appearance of your smile and your self-confidence.
Dental bridges and crowns can help to curb the development of these concerns durably and effective.
