Missing teeth, even just one, can lead to complex dental problems and have a detrimental effect overall oral health. When a tooth is lost, a chain reaction is set into motion: jaw bone in the area of the lost tooth begins to shrink and affect the bite, periodontal disease can take hold and remaining teeth begin to shift position.
Replacing a lost tooth, or teeth, quickly is important for maintaining a healthy, functional smile that enables you to enjoy a good quality of life each day.
Dr. David Pereira offers options for replacing missing teeth in his Darien, CT dental practice and works with patients to choose the best solution for their needs, goals and budget. Replacing missing teeth will restore dental health- and your confidence!
