When you’re missing one or a few teeth, it can affect the health of your entire mouth. As you rely on your remaining teeth to do all the heavy lifting, they may begin to wear out prematurely or even crack. Having a missing tooth can impact your bite, your speech, and you may even experience headaches or jaw pain. With this in mind, it’s important to replace a missing tooth before your oral health deteriorates further. But which treatment is appropriate for you? In the past, a dental bridge was your only choice. Now, dental implants provide patients with a more comfortable solution that can last a lifetime. Here’s a closer look at the difference between the two options.

Missing teeth can lead to oral problems, but implants and bridges can restore your smile and improve your overall dental health.

Few people will make it through life with a full set of teeth. By the age of 50, the average person has lost 12 permanent teeth to gum disease, injury or decay. Losing your teeth affects your smile and can also alter your bite and weaken your jawbone.

A full, bright smile is one of your greatest assets. If you’re missing a tooth due to injury or decay, it’s important to address it as soon as possible. Even if you’re not concerned about cosmetics, having a full set of teeth is essential to maintaining good oral health.  Missing teeth can result in bone loss in your jaw or cause your remaining teeth to shift to fill in the gaps, leaving you with further complications from a misaligned bite.
