Teeth are important not just for eating and smiling but they affect the way we interact with others and how we feel about ourselves.
Losing teeth at any age can lead to premature facial aging, causing the face to sink in the cheek areas and making our chin and nose appear closer together. Most people can look grumpy due to downward turning of the corners of the mouth. These facial features need to be accurately diagnosed and addressed with the correct treatment.
There many ways to replace missing teeth:
- Dentures- metal and acrylic or new flexible metal free dentures
- Bridges -fixed and removable
- Implants- implant bridges, implant retained dentures
