If you have lost a tooth or several teeth, it is recommended that you replace them with the help of dental prosthetics.
Fully restored teeth rows prevent teeth from shifting and your dental occlusion from deformation. If in long term you are missing one or more than one tooth, the remaining teeth are taking on a bigger increased load and they may change their location – drift, as well as teeth can start to wear down faster.
If you are missing a couple of side teeth, the front teeth are taking on a bigger increased load, and they are not meant for such loads. The front-teeth main mission is biting, because they only have one facet. As a result, because of the increased load the front-teeth are wearing down a lot faster, as well as they are slowly sliding foreword, or in other words popping out, which might cause bone loss and inflammation – periodontitis (also called parodontosis). To avoid such complications, we advise to replace the missing teeth (with the exception of the 8thteeth). We can achieve this with crowns, bridge dental prosthesis, removable prosthesis or implants.
