Did you know that as soon as you lose a tooth your bone begins to deteriorate? The longer you wait to replace a missing tooth, the more difficult treatment may be. It is important to seek help as soon as possible when you are missing teeth. Frederick, MD dentist Dr. Nils Olson offers a full range of dental restorations for the treatment of missing teeth.
Causes of Missing Teeth Frederick, MD
Patients can lose teeth for many reasons. Some lose their teeth in an accident or from an injury. Others may lose teeth due to poor oral hygiene, gum disease, tooth decay, or age. Whatever the cause of your missing teeth, Dr. Olson can help. If you lost a tooth due to disease or decay, it is important to seek treatment first for the underlying cause. Treating the root of your oral health concerns will help to build a healthy foundation for dental restorations.
Benefits of Replacing Missing Teeth
Replacing missing teeth can help to secure the structure of your jaw bone. Whether one or several teeth are missing, the root structures are no longer in place to support the jaw. Dental Implants can act as a root system and will bond with your natural bone to help keep your smile aligned and healthy. The sooner you seek help for missing teeth, the more conservative dental treatments Dr. Olson can provide. Replacing your missing teeth will help to protect the remaining natural teeth from further decay or damage.
Patients with untreated missing teeth are more susceptible to developing gum disease. Gum disease is a serious medical condition. A bacterial infection of the gums, when left untreated, can spread contributing to the development of other systemic health concerns. Heart disease, Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s are all linked to advanced gum disease.
Cosmetically, replacing your missing teeth can restore your confidence in your smile. Feeling good about your smile can help improve the quality of your life. With your missing teeth replaced with durable and quality dental restorations, you will be free to eat a healthy balanced diet. You may also feel an improvement in your confidence in social and professional settings. It is important to feel proud and confident in your smile.
