Why Replace Missing Teeth?

Especially if you’re only missing one tooth, you may not think it’s necessary to replace it. But even one missing tooth can impact your entire mouth. Every tooth in your mouth contributes to your ability to speak and eat properly. You may develop a lisp or eliminate foods you love from your diet because you can no longer chew them.

When there’s a hole in your smile, the surrounding teeth shift to fill it. If you’ve had Invisalign or other treatments to straighten your smile, the effects of this are reversed by the shifting teeth. Teeth become more crooked, and large gaps may develop in other areas of your mouth.

When you’re missing teeth, the surrounding teeth are at a higher risk. You’re more likely to develop tooth decay, gum disease, and lose other teeth.

You may develop TMJ issues or broken teeth. Without all of your teeth, the others are taking on the stress and pressure of your bite. They aren’t equipped to handle all of this. They may chip or crack under pressure. An uneven bite also contributes to the destruction of the jaw joint and how it functions.

Replacing Missing Teeth in Asheville, NC

The restorative dentistry options that we offer at Rebol Family Dentistry include:

  • Dental Crowns: Dental crowns are caps that can cover dental implants or protect damaged teeth. Using CEREC, we can provide same-day crowns if you need a more stable bite. Once your implants heal, you can receive crowns quickly.
  • Dental Bridges: Natural surrounding teeth or implants can support a dental bridge. A dental bridge holds a prosthetic tooth in place of a missing tooth. Patients with multiple missing teeth benefit from this dental solution.
  • Dentures & Partial Dentures: Dentures consist of a full set of prosthetic teeth designed to replace many teeth or even full arches of teeth. Traditional dentures use adhesive to stay in place. However, dentures are a long-lasting and secure restoration when secured with implants.
