Whether you have one missing tooth, many missing teeth, or a mouth that has no natural teeth, this is a problem that requires treatment. If missing teeth go unaddressed, the strength and integrity of your jawbone can be compromised and your oral health greatly impacted. Also, the quality of your life can be degraded in so many far-reaching ways including:
The good news is that if you have missing teeth in any capacity there are oral health remedies to help you with your situation. If you live in San Diego County, consider calling the San Diego family dentist at McBride Dental to learn more about what options and solutions exist to fix your missing tooth problem.
People that are missing teeth may feel less self-assured than those with a full set of teeth and as a result, may withdraw from life. Everything from relationships with family and friends to performance at work and school can be affected when missing teeth are present. It is a very difficult situation to be in if you feel ashamed to smile because you no longer have some or all of your teeth. But there is hope and there are options that can fix your missing tooth problem.
If you feel like there is nothing you can do to fix your smile, this could not be further from the truth. The experienced San Diego dental implant doctor at McBride Dental can discuss with you what can be done to treat missing teeth. For patients with many to no natural teeth present, implant-supported dentures or permanent dentures could be the right approach. These natural-looking and functional tooth prosthetics can be attached directly to your jawbone to restore your smile once again.
If you miss a beautiful smile, the benefits of permanent dentures may be worth exploring. Implant dentistry is an option that can resolve your dental issues, especially when you have many missing teeth or all of your teeth are gone.
Using long-lasting dental prosthetics, you can restore your smile and your ability to eat and grin with confidence again. Dr. McBride can replace any missing tooth with secure and natural-looking restorations.
If you would like to learn more about how you can seamlessly re-establish a natural smile and get back your ability to function again when you are missing all of your teeth, McBride Dental is pleased to offer dental bridges, dentures, and dental implants. There is an option for tooth replacement that will work for you.
