We all remember losing our teeth as children and being delighted to find money from the tooth fairy under our pillow, but it’s just not as much fun losing teeth as an adult. According to the National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research, adults between the ages of 20 and 64 have an average of 25 permanent teeth remaining, which is three shy of a full set (not counting wisdom teeth). Dr. Hardy & Dr. Wilson want everyone to know that replacing a missing tooth is important to your dental health. Read on for more information!
When people lose teeth in the movies, it’s usually from something high-impact and exciting, like getting kicked in the face. However, the leading cause of tooth loss is gum disease. If you are an adult who has lost a tooth in the back of your mouth, you might be inclined to ignore it if it doesn’t affect your smile. Unfortunately, missing teeth are a big problem beyond cosmetic concerns. Tooth loss can affect your ability to eat and speak properly, the alignment of your teeth, the health of your surrounding teeth, and cause bone loss.
Dr. Hardy & Dr. Wilson are clinically skilled at the replacement of missing teeth with the most advanced solutions for your cosmetic and dental health needs. If you are missing one or more teeth, there are many options for tooth replacement: fixed and removable bridges, dentures, and implants. Currently, dental medicine and research favor implants as the best treatment option due to their proven longevity, strength, and stability.
The team at Cornerstone Dentistry wants you to have the healthy, beautiful smile you deserve, so come to visit us and find out what Dr. Hardy & Dr. Wilson can do for you. Contact us to schedule an appointment today!
