Missing teeth affect your smile.

Posted Aug 26 2008 11:47am
Missing teeth can detract from your appearance, make chewing and speaking difficult, and place stress on your bite.

Missing teeth can also cause your mouth to sink and your lips and cheeks to collapse. Your chewing ability can decrease and your face can acquire more than normal aging lines and wrinkles.

Without necessary replacement teeth, teeth with open spaces beside them can drift causing your bite to change, your remaining teeth to become loose, and your jawbone to be sore. With drifting, you may have additional decay and possible gum and jawbone problems that necessitate extractions.

Replacement teeth improve your appearance, maintain the shape of your face, make chewing easier, and preserve your remaining teeth and a correct bite.

Bridges, dentures, and implants are designed to replace missing teeth for health and cosmetic reasons. They keep your remaining teeth in their original position, redistribute chewing pressure, and help maintain the natural shape of your face while supporting your lips and cheeks.

Dentures are a positive step in improving your health, appearance, and confidence. Dentures are effective and the least expensive replacement teeth available.

Don't let marketing tell you that your smile is not good enough.

What I know for sure is that it's all connected.
