What Are the Consequences of Tooth Loss?

It is a common belief that the greatest consequence of losing a permanent tooth is how the visible gap can change the look of a smile; however, our dentists in Chesapeake at Eastern Virginia Family & Cosmetic Dentistry want patients to be aware that leaving missing teeth unreplaced can create some serious concerns:

Our skilled cosmetic dentists can help you avoid and correct the many problems missing teeth can cause. By replacing a missing tooth with a custom dental implant or bridge you can repair both the health of your bite and beauty of your smile. For patients who are missing all of their teeth, we may be able to create dentures that are held in place by several dental implants. Dental implants offer a unique advantage in that they can stimulate jawbone tissue to prevent recession, which is a very desirable benefit.

We welcome you to schedule an appointment at our practice to learn more about all of the options available for replacing your missing tooth or teeth. You’ll find that our dentists are compassionate, experienced, and take the time to explain the drawbacks and benefits of every treatment plan.
