Multiple Teeth Replacement
Explained by a Dental Implant Dentist in San Diego
Are you missing several teeth? Whether your tooth loss was the result of
natural tooth decay, gum disease or injury, you are probably missing having
a complete set of healthy teeth. Having all of your teeth goes beyond
allowing you to speak clearly and enjoy the foods you love; it has a lot
to do with one's personal image and confidence. When we have several
missing teeth, it's hard for other people not to notice and it can
lead to discomfort when smiling and meeting new people.
If you have several missing teeth, it's important for you to know that
there are solutions available that can give you back your beautiful smile.
Missing teeth may be replaced with multiple
single-tooth implant restorations. If you are missing multiple teeth due to trauma or because
of gum disease or tooth decay, dental implants are an excellent solution.
Dental implants are ideal because they prevent the need to alter your existing healthy
teeth and they have the look and feel of natural teeth.

As we age, we cannot ignore the fact that our teeth are prone to the natural
process of deterioration. Even when we adapt to a healthy diet and exercise
regimen, after years of use, teeth can get worn down, chipped or cracked.
Even if you were diligent about your
home care regimen and getting your semi-annual
cleanings, you can lose teeth as you grow older. Replacing missing teeth is not
only important for your overall health, but it can make a dramatic difference
in the way you look and feel.
