Are You Struggling With a Broken Smile?
Learn About Your Options and Get Started On Your Way To a New Smile!
Many people are completely dismayed when they lose a tooth. When we are young, a missing tooth is a fantastic event! We call in the tooth fairy and celebrate. But when we are older, it is a tragic affair. We have lost an important part of ourselves. And not only are we missing a tooth, but we are also missing a piece of our confidence. It is difficult to face the day, go to work, and talk with new people when our smile is not what we would like it to be.
Learning about your options for replacing your tooth is the best way to start the process of getting back your smile. The first question to consider is should you replace the tooth? Replacing your tooth is not one hundred percent mandatory. It is a choice. But there is a long list of reason why you should consider replacing your tooth.
- You will be able to eat more comfortably! Whether it is an incisor or a missing molar, each tooth has an important job in helping us to take a bite from an apple, a juicy piece of steak, or even a cookie! Replacing your teeth will help you to enjoy your meals. Also, your bite is very important. Your remaining teeth will be in better shape when you are not relying on them to do the job of the missing tooth.
- Your smile will look better! Depending on where your missing tooth was, this may be more or less obvious. But a missing tooth, no matter where it is in the mouth, is always somewhat noticeable.
- Your overall dental health will be better! When you lose a tooth, the integrity of the teeth surrounding it is compromised. Over time, all of the teeth will move, and the stability of all your teeth can be in jeopardy. To avoid this shifting, it is best to have your missing tooth replaced.
Many people struggle with a visit to the dentist to replace a tooth because they are afraid of what might happen there. Here are some good things to do when considering your tooth replacement.
- Visit a dentist who specializes in tooth replacement.
- Make your appointment with a dentist who knows how to make a patient feel comfortable. A warm office environment and a sympathetic dentist will make your visit easier.
- Ask about sedation options. There are many ways, from listening to soothing music to using a local anesthesia that can help you relax for your procedure. Just ask!
