Domino Effect of Losing a Tooth

People say that you can always smile your problems away, but how can you smile if your problem is your teeth? Losing a tooth is similar to losing a part of yourself, particularly your confidence.

The teeth are naturally designed to last a lifetime. Hair and nails grow back after cutting it. Skin tear and broken bones regenerate over time. Still, how come teeth do not heal when you break it? Most dental specialists say that because the teeth do not have cells, it cannot heal by itself. Your tooth enamel is comprised of 90% minerals and no cells, unlike the hair, nails, skin, and bone.

Treating Your Overall Oral Health

Disregarding the baby ones, your teeth only live once. Every dentist reiterates that every person should brush at least three times a day. It is impossible to stick up fallen teeth or leave deteriorating ones untreated because it affects the overall dental condition.

The only way to avoid cavities from spreading is to take out the infected tooth. The process, though, will not end there. Even with the source gone, your oral health remains at risk. Losing an infected tooth is more than getting rid of a problem, as it will yield bigger issues when left untreated.

Replacing a Missing Tooth

Dental implants help prevent serious oral problems. All 32 teeth were designed to work together and help out each other. When you lose a tooth, the remaining teeth work harder than expected, thus making it more prone to wear and deterioration.

Until you find a replacement, you are putting all other teeth at risk. Dental implants reduce stress and overwork on the remaining teeth by relieving it of extra load. It also reduces the need for other restorative treatments as it prevents cutting down the teeth adjacent to the gap to put bridgework.

Having gaps between teeth is unhealthy. Over time, the teeth adjacent to the gap would naturally move to the open space. This makes the appearance of your teeth look bad and its function worse. Spaces between the teeth decrease its strength and durability.

Dental implants can fill the gap. At Church Road Dental & Cosmetics, we can provide you with dental implants that make it look like you had your teeth back. Contact us now and say goodbye to empty spaces or wide gaps for a better smile.
