Missing Teeth - Ft. Worth, TX

Missing One or More Teeth?

Understand Your Health Risk

You may only think about a loss of smile aesthetics when you think about missing teeth. But even more problematic are the functional and health challenges that come with tooth loss. Without stimulation from the natural tooth roots, your jawbone will begin to shrink and thin. Even with one missing tooth, remaining teeth can shift out of place, your bite will change, and you risk losing more teeth. In instances where gum disease has caused significant tooth and bone loss, facial features can begin looking “sunken in,” eating becoming painful and difficult, and you may struggle to feel healthy, confident, or attractive. With many or all missing teeth, your overall health will decline, too. If you’re suffering from missing teeth in Fort Worth, TX, we encourage you to schedule a consultation with our experienced dentists. We can restore your smile and quality of life with dental implants!

The Effects of Missing Teeth

How Dental Implants Help

Dental implants mimic how natural teeth function in your mouth. They’re made up of a titanium post that replaces the tooth root and provides stimulation to the jawbone. Dental implants are the most versatile and permanent option available because they can support a single dental crown, a dental bridge, a denture, or an entire arch of replacement teeth. If you’re missing a single tooth, a dental implant will replace only the tooth lost, restoring function and health to the area. If many or all teeth are missing, four or more dental implants secured in your jawbone provide enough strength and durability to support a brand-new set of life-like teeth.
