Missing teeth can impact all aspects of your life. Missing teeth can make it difficult to chew, speak, and smile confidently. Even one missing tooth may compromise the health of your remaining teeth, gums structure, and function of your jaw and bite.

Replacing missing teeth can prevent further deterioration of your oral health. We can reduce the risk of secondary oral health complications, such as gum disease and further tooth loss. Advancements in restorative dentistry have made replacing missing teeth more natural and long-lasting. Greenwood, IN restorative dentist Dr. Goris offers full-service dental implant treatment plans to replace a single missing tooth or to secure a full denture.

Patients who do not replace their missing teeth are more susceptible to additional tooth loss. The risk of bone deterioration can greatly increase because there is no structure to support a healthy jawbone. Missing teeth can cause the remaining teeth to shift, loosen, or even fall out. Without the support of all of your teeth, your jaw becomes increasingly weak and can begin to deteriorate. Although this is not as common as developing periodontal disease. Your gums suffer the brunt of it. Therefore, it is highly recommended to talk to your dentist about replacement options.
