When you scroll through your Facebook photos what do you observe about your smile?
With the instant upload phenomena of digital cameras, our selfies and all of the other images of our lives are being documented more than regularly.  Our embarrassing photos  are not only found in your parent’s photo album but now posted for the entire world to see on the world wide web.  This digital age has added an extra pressure to be fabulous from all angles at all times.

Now add your insecurity of a possibly missing tooth.  Do you notice your smile is not as wide or you carefully cover your mouth when you laugh so no one will notice?  If so, read on as we may have a solution that will be picture perfect for you.

Can Teeth Be Naturally Missing?

Yes, they can.  A lot of factors are at play when it comes to the complex process of tooth formation. Congenitally missing teeth can run in families, meaning that often it is simply an inherited trait. Plus, certain systemic conditions can also result in missing teeth.

The simple fact is that it can happen, but whatever the reason for teeth to be missing the good news is that there are effective ways to treat it.

What Kinds Of Treatments Are There For Missing Teeth?

Depending on your unique situation and personal preference, your dentist will recommend one or a combination of these treatments:

  • Dental Implants: This is most often the treatment of choice. Dental implants are artificial tooth roots that provide a strong foundation for replacement teeth. Combined with a crown specifically made to match your teeth, they are the most natural, functional and long-lasting treatment option.
  • Dental Bridge: Bridges, often considered the next best option, literally “bridge” the gap created by one or more missing teeth. Crowns, placed on the two teeth adjacent to the gap, are connected to a false tooth that fills the space left by the missing tooth.
  • Removable Partial Denture: This appliance consists of replacement teeth attached to a gum-colored plastic base. The removable denture simply rests on your natural teeth and gums.
  • Orthodontic Treatment: Often times gaps left by missing teeth will cause the surrounding teeth to rotate and shift into the empty space, resulting in bad bite and other issues. Orthodontic treatment is often recommended to keep the gap open until treatment to replace the missing tooth is undertaken.
