The Essentials of Replacing Back Teeth

Team Dental Health, Oral Health, Wisdom Teeth

A large number of individuals in America have encountered the loss of at least one of their lasting teeth. Regardless of whether brought about by poor oral consideration, damage, seniority or expert extraction, tooth misfortune can change each part of your day by day life in various negative ways. While missing back teeth may not be the principal thing individuals see when you grin, they are vital to keeping up great oral and physical wellbeing.

Why Replacing Back Teeth Is Essential
If you do not replace your back teeth, you will lose the bone that supports them. You run the risk of bite collapse as well as a decrease in your chewing efficiency thus impacting your dietary choices. Losing back teeth causes your face, cheeks, and lips to sag. This slack appearance serves to make the individual seem years, if not decades, older than their biological age. You can also experience excessive wear or erosion of remaining front teeth because they are receiving more stress as fewer teeth are handling the workload.

Health Issues
When any tooth is missing, the hole that remains in its place leaves the gum tissue there more susceptible to disease and deterioration. This can spread to other healthy teeth in the area, causing even more potential problems like advanced periodontitis. Depending on the severity of the disease or tissue degeneration, surgical procedures may be the only measures effective in fighting further damage.

Implants: A Permanent Solution
Fortunately for people who have suffered the loss of a single tooth or multiple teeth in the back of the mouth, dental implants can correct the issue. Dr. Mohammed Erakat will assess the area and any damage that has been sustained, then develop a treatment plan tailored to your individual needs.
