Missing Teeth?

Implant Dentistry East Windsor NJThe Downside of Missing Teeth

Teeth can be lost because of an accident or other trauma, but the most common reason people lose a tooth is from gum disease or decay. So, how bad is it to lose a tooth? I mean you can’t die from it, right? No, you can’t, but losing even one tooth can cause the other teeth to move around – which leads to other problems. This can impact chewing and your ability to absorb nutrients from food. Other issues can happen such as your face changing shape, often resulting in a “sunken” look. This can make you look much older than you really are. Also, your speech can be affected. Because it’s more difficult to chew with missing teeth, you may find yourself favoring unhealthy softer foods, which can cause you to gain weight. But it doesn’t have to be that way!

Dental Implant Restoration for Missing Teeth

Now’s the time to get the smile you deserve – permanently!

Dental implants are an excellent way to replace lost teeth. From the front of the smile, where they are fully visible, to the back, where they provide stability for eating, implants can help you reclaim a beautiful and healthy smile. Unlike bridges or dentures, which sit on top of the gums, dental implants are securely placed under the gums. The “tooth” placed on an implant looks totally natural, because it comes through the gums just like the original did – it’s like growing a new tooth! Implants can replace any number of missing teeth. Even people with no teeth can benefit from dental implants, because they can replace their dentures with teeth that are secure while talking and don’t need to be removed during sleep. After an oral surgeon places a titanium post, Dr. Cherian will custom-create natural-looking restorations.
