Replacing Missing Teeth: What Are My Options?

The replacement of missing teeth can be accomplished in several ways and today’s patients enjoy the benefits of a range of options to choose from to meet their needs and goals. Dr. Schamback and the team at Great Smile Dental in Port St. Lucie provide advanced treatment options for the replacement of lost teeth including a unique treatment developed by Dr. Schamback called Semi-Permanent Teeth.

Why Replace Lost Teeth?

The loss of a tooth or of several teeth can lead to a cascade of dental problems and can also impact your daily quality of life. When a tooth is removed or lost to disease or trauma, the natural structure of the mouth and jaw are affected. Adjacent teeth can shift over time and the risk of developing gum disease or tooth decay increases. The lost tooth root leads to a loss of bone in the jaw which can cause the jaw to shrink and lend a more aged appearance.

If you have missing teeth, you probably are having difficulty speaking clearly and enjoying some of your favorite foods comfortably. Lost teeth can impact how you feel about your appearance and your confidence when interacting with others.
