Everything you didn’t know about tooth loss
Tooth loss impacts the smile in a variety of ways. It can cause the loss of natural bone, which also holds the existing teeth within the smile. Tooth loss also causes an imperfect appearance, with a gap in the smile. It keeps patients from speaking and eating properly. And in some cases, if not addressed quickly, it can cause the existing teeth to shift out of place, causing small gaps between all the teeth within the dental arch. It is important for patients in the area of Sugarland, TX to work with a dental team that provides tooth replacement solutions such a dental bridges for replacing one or more teeth within the dental arch. This is where the team at Smile Texas can assist!
