Often when someone has a missing tooth in the back of their mouth, they take the "out of sight, out of mind" approach. At Kaydental in North York, we believe "a chain is only as strong as it's weakest link" is the better approach.
Aside from the discomfort that can come with a missing tooth, there are many complications that can take place. Even missing one tooth in the very back of your mouth can have serious effects on your smile, as each tooth acts as a placeholder and is responsible for keeping the surrounding teeth in line. Obviously, this can result in shifting teeth, but when gaps begin to form in your smile you become increasingly susceptible to decay and bacteria.
A dental bridge is a false tooth that can be used to replace one or more missing teeth. Dental bridges can do many things, including reducing your risk of gum disease, help to correct minor bite issues and can even improve your speech. The false tooth acts as placeholder to avoid the shifting of other teeth, improve/maintain your oral health as well as protect the appearance of your smile.
If you've lost a tooth or several teeth, don't wait to see the complications, be proactive and ask your North York dentist about Dental Bridges.
