When one or many teeth end up being lost, the look of a smile is inevitably affected. This leads to premature aging of the face. Besides the effects on the way a smile looks, the gaps left by missing teeth may harm tremendously oral health.

Here are the most commonly used treatment options to replace one or many missing teeth:
Beyond the aesthetic consequences, the loss of one tooth or many teeth will also have effects on your oral health as well as the functionality of your teeth. Indeed, our teeth constitute a harmonious balance and each tooth is held in place thanks to the other teeth.
That is why when teeth are missing, the remaining teeth will tend to move to close the gap left by the missing teeth. This has various negative effects, notably:
An increased risk of oral diseases. The movement of teeth causes spaces in which bacteria are more likely to hide;
The shifting of neighbouring teeth and the tooth opposite the missing one may cause the irreversible loss of these teeth;
A diminished mastication capacity;
A premature wearing of the remaining teeth.
Therefore, the disruptions cause by the loss of a tooth affect a smile functionally as much as aesthetically.
In this section, you will find all the tooth replacement-related advice sheets that our team prepared.
Nonetheless, do not forget that only a dentist, a specialist in your oral health, is able to make an accurate diagnosis, so book an appointment!
