Missing a Tooth? Replace Sooner Rather Than Later

Man with Toothache | Dentist Tucson AZ

If you've lost a tooth, you may be tempted to let it go, especially if it’s farther back in the mouth where it’s difficult to see.

It’s understandable because the whole process of losing the tooth, whether it’s because of poor oral health or a sports injury, can be a challenge to deal with. You may feel depressed, eating certain foods can be uncomfortable or impossible, and you hate the idea of a gap in your smile.

The Problem with Tooth Loss

But tooth loss leads to numerous oral health problems, and if a tooth isn’t restored, you will be dealing with a lot more than an esthetic issue.

  • Increased pressure on remaining teeth – Each tooth is designed to perform a specific job, so the loss of even one tooth is a problem for the rest of your teeth. After tooth loss, remaining teeth have to work in ways they were never meant to, leading to erosion, fractures, breakage, and discomfort.
  • Alignment problems – Your teeth are always moving somewhat, so another important role your teeth play is to act as placeholders in your jaw. When you lose a tooth, neighboring teeth gradually drift into the space, leading to crowding and misalignment issues.
  • Increased risk of periodontal disease – The crowding and alignment issues, in turn, make it more difficult to clean between crooked or crowded teeth. Inadequate oral hygiene is the primary cause of periodontal disease.

We Offer the Dental Solution You Need in Tucson

The good news is that restorative dentistry at our Tucson office offers several tooth replacement options that will return your smile to a whole and healthy state.
