Failing Teeth

Overview

What are Failing Teeth ?

Years ago, a good solution to replace all of your missing top teeth, bottom teeth, or both, didn’t exist. Many people settled for uncomfortable and imperfect solutions, such as partial dentures to replace their missing teeth.

Today, advances in dental technology and easy financing options have made it much easier to replace up to a full mouth of teeth in one simple dental procedure. This means you will no longer have to worry about removing partial dentures and cleaning them every night or the pain or the embarrassment of broken, decayed teeth. You will no longer have to avoid foods you used to love out of the fear of discomfort or further damage to your teeth. You will get your full smile back and nobody will know they’re not your natural teeth.

The Real Cost of Missing Teeth

Missing even a single tooth can cause significant mental, emotional, and physical health consequences. Many people who are missing teeth struggle to form personal and professional relationships because they avoid social settings.

Additionally, people with broken, decayed teeth compromise their nutrition due to their food choices. Broken, painful teeth cannot exert the same chewing forces as healthy teeth. Affected individuals will begin to avoid healthier food choices such raw fruits and vegetables, leaning towards more processed foods.

When they do attend social gatherings, individuals often avoid smiling or hide their smiles. However, by hiding your smile, people may think you’re not interested potential friendships or work opportunities, and romantic connections may  even fail to materialize. At work, a big bright smile is a sign of confidence. It positions you as likable and opens the doors for opportunities. The cost of missing teeth for your business and personal life can be very high.

Missing teeth impact your physical health, too. In fact, one large study found that people with no teeth had an increased risk of heart problems and death due to heart conditions, stroke, and more.[1] This is why it’s so important to get your mouth back to full working order.
