The average adult between the age of 20 to 65 has three or more teeth that are decayed or missing. If you are missing one or more of your teeth, there are plenty of reasons to correct the problem.
Missing teeth can:
- affect how you chew
- affect your speech
- cause other teeth to shift
- cause bone loss
With today’s advanced treatments there are plenty of options in replacing missing teeth including bridges, dentures and implants. Be sure to speak to your dentist or periodontist for the best option for you.
