In order to have a fantastic first impression, it is important that you smile with confidence. A perfect smile goes with a white and healthy set of teeth. The absence of a tooth or multiple teeth will pose problems for the basic acts of chewing and speaking. This also effects self-confidence. And having one tooth will eventually affect other teeth in your mouth because they will loosen to move around without the other tooth holding them in place. The good news is that it is possible to resolve and replace this problem.

With today's dental advancement, you have multiple options to address the issues of missing teeth:

  1. A dental implant is a procedure through surgery in which a replacement tooth root is placed and fused with the jawbone. This will look natural and have a long lifespan. It is cost-effective in the long term.
  2. A fixed bridge that bridges the gap between one or more missing teeth. This bridge once fixed will look like natural teeth. However, several appointments with the dentist are needed.
  3. A resin-retained dental bridge that attaches into the neighboring teeth on each side. This costs less and does not endure much pressure.

Clearly the path to dental health and overall personal wellbeing regarding missing teeth is to consult your dentist. He or she will ensure that you will find the perfect treatment for you and your specific dental condition. Prepare yourself for the joy of a beautiful smile with and a return to a fully functional and complete dental state.

  • Floss Daily - Flossing daily will ensure you teeth is cleaned thoroughly. It will further remove food debris that your toothbrush are unable to reach.
  • Choose Healthier Food Options - Avoid certain food and drink not only sugary ones. Drinks like coffee and wine can permanently stain your teeth and lose its lustrous white glow. Eat vegetables, nuts, fruits and other foods with antioxidants will help reduce inflammation and fight bacteria that can cause gum disease.
  • Quit Bad Habits - Smoking for instance will stain your teeth, cause gum defects and oral cancer. Those addicted to coffee will notice significant staining to their teeth eventually and if you like chewing your nails or lips you can develop oral sores while increasing risk of infection and damage to enamel.There's no better time to start quitting cigarettes and cutting back coffee in take than the beginning of new year.
  • Visit Your Dentist Regularly - If you have been putting off your dental appointments, change this habit and visit the clinic as scheduled. Prioritize your dental health and continue to make it a habit for the coming year.
