Missing teeth can affect and deteriorate your self confidence and your long-term oral health. Missing teeth should be addressed as soon as possible in our Greeley dentist office. Early treatment may help prevent damage to surrounding teeth, gums and even additional tooth loss. Modern dentistry allows for natural looking, comfortable and durable treatment options that can give you back natural function and a lasting smile.
Replacing missing teeth improves oral health, preventing further deterioration of the jaw, teeth, and gums. Missing teeth compromise the structure of the jaw and integrity of the bite. When left untreated, missing teeth not only affect the quality of your daily life, but can actually cause the jaw bone to begin to recede. Without the natural tooth root structure to stabilize the jaw, the bone begins to deteriorate. Treatments such as dental implants act as prosthetic root structures, stabilizing the bite and promoting natural bone regeneration. This helps to maintain your natural appearance and the integrity of remaining teeth.
