A Missing Tooth Is Like a Fork That's Missing a Tine. Here Are Eight Reasons to Replace a Missing Tooth

A healthy mouth should not be underestimated.

A missing tooth may seem like a small issue that can be ignored, but it negatively impacts your life. Here are eight reasons to consider replacing that missing tooth.

  1. Reduced Quality of Life
  2. Difficulty Eating and Dietary Inadequacy
  3. Discomfort and Pain
  4. Jaw Problems
  5. Crooked Teeth
  6. Your Appearance
  7. Self-Confidence
  8. Overall Health

Would you eat with a fork that’s missing a tine? You probably wouldn’t … if you had a choice. So why tolerate a missing tooth? There are many good reasons to replace a tooth and, usually, several options for replacement.

Your teeth are supported by the teeth around them. A missing tooth weakens the structure of the mouth and can eventually result in the loss of other teeth. When a tooth is missing, the remaining teeth shift in an attempt to fill in the gap left by that tooth. This change in tooth alignment can affect the jaw. Maintaining the alignment of teeth will protect the integrity of the entire mouth.

Replacing a missing tooth can give you a beautiful and functional smile that improves your overall health, attractiveness and self-confidence. Today there are effective and predictable methods for permanent tooth replacement. Dental implants have been proven to be safe and successful in restoring your smile.

A missing tooth can be replaced with a Single Tooth Implant restoration using the Teeth In A Day® protocol.

Teeth in A Day®, developed at Pi Dental Center, is our trademarked procedure. It allows patients to have stable non-removable healthy teeth in one office visit. In the conventional process, getting an implant took more than 3 months for the patient to have non-removable teeth. During that long 3 month period, the patient would suffer with a removable denture while they waited for the bone to heal. Teeth In A Day® has reduced this lengthy procedure to a single day.

Pi Dental Center utilizes a sophisticated approach to dental care with up-to-date treatment protocols and equipment. Contact Us To Schedule An Evaluation.
