The Most Common Causes of Missing Teeth

When we are children, the loss of our primary teeth is considered cause for celebration, a rite of passage. The Tooth Fairy comes to reward us for the big event, and we are introduced to an entirely new range of dental services as our adult teeth start to erupt. Our dentists start to emphasize the importance of taking extra special care of these bigger, seemingly stronger teeth because, apparently, they’re the ones that we’re going to have for the rest of our lives. But, hey – we’ll worry about that when we’re grown-ups, right?

Funny how time flies – or not so funny, depending on the shape of your teeth.

When you lose your teeth as an adult, there is no celebration, and the Tooth Fairy wants nothing to do with you. What you do get, thanks to modern restorative dentistry, is the possibility of a second chance. While your body may not provide you with a new set of teeth as it did when you were a child, Drs. Clay and Jeffrey Weisberg of Eastern Virginia Family & Cosmetic Dentistry can restore health, function, and aesthetics to your mouth through implant-supported crowns, bridges, and dentures, in addition to other treatments. Whatever the causes of missing teeth, our Chesapeake, VA dentists can provide a solution custom-tailored to the needs and goals of each individual patient.

If you are missing one or more of your natural teeth, we encourage you not to delay in seeking treatment. Schedule your initial consultation with Dr. Clay Weisberg or Dr. Jeffrey Weisberg today.
