Don't let tooth loss cause more trouble than it already has. Find out why not replacing a tooth can create more dental trouble.
PALM BEACH GARDENS, FL, January 16, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Tooth loss-it's something no one wants to experience. It's a stressful predicament, and it may seem like a hassle, but you need to find a solution for this problem. If you go without replacing a tooth, you risk causing more dental problems.
"If tooth loss is located in the front upper or lower teeth, people are more likely to see a dentist for treatment. It's a different story for the back teeth. It's less noticeable, so they don't understand why they should bother with it. No matter the location, it's very important to replace a tooth," says Dr. Civin.
They work together to break down food and help you speak. If an open space in your teeth is overly exposed to food and beverages, acid and plaque bacteria can irritate that gum tissue. Plus, the neighboring teeth are even more unprotected.
Also, you raise the risk of teeth shifting. How is that possible? Your teeth will naturally gravitate toward the open space. If you allow for this to go on for too long, you may develop spacing issues. You don't want to add orthodontic work to your list of treatments.
Most of all, a natural tooth root stimulates the jawbone, which helps support your facial structure. If you don't replace a tooth, the jawbone will resorb, causing changes to your jawbone structure. Bone loss isn't a small thing. It's a big problem.
Bottom line-your teeth are like a support system. Tooth loss messes up that support.
Do you know how to solve your tooth loss problem? If you have one or two teeth missing, maybe you should talk to your dentist about dental implants. In Palm Beach Gardens, Dr. Civin can see you for a dental implant consultation.
"People take their teeth for granted. They don't realize the importance of preserving them. Good oral health and strict hygiene can prevent tooth decay and gum disease, two common causes of tooth loss. Unfortunately, people can be lax with their cleaning. It can come back to bite you, and I don't want that to happen. If your natural tooth can't be saved, I look to the next best thing. In Palm Beach Gardens, dental implants are available at my dentist office to help a patient take back his/her smile," explains Dr. Civin.
If it's decided that you are a good dental implant candidate, you are one step further to getting your oral health back on track. To schedule an appointment for dental implants in Palm Beach Gardens, call (561) 624-2224. Or patients can submit an appointment form via Dr. Civin's website at www.civinsmiles.com.
