Is it Really Important to Replace Missing Teeth?

Replacing missing teeth is essential for the preservation of your smile. Call Houston family dentist Dr. Sanaz Khavari at 713-490-2088 to learn moreLet’s say you’re missing one or two teeth. Let’ say these teeth are towards the back of your mouth – unnoticeable and not cosmetically unpleasant. Why should you worry about replacing them? Because failure to do so can have some rather significant consequences.

When a tooth is missing, adjacent teeth will eventually shift position. This alters bite tension and strength and can make additional tooth loss more likely. Missing teeth can increase risks for uneven tooth wear, over reliance on weaker teeth for functions they are not designed for, and even make gum disease more likely. Worse yet, missing teeth – even a single missing tooth – can allow for jaw shrinkage or collapse, forever altering the shape of your face. For these reasons and more, Houston dentist Dr. Sanaz Khavari suggests replacing missing teeth sooner rather than later. Please call us at 713-490-2088 to schedule a consultation and learn how we can help strengthen, protect, and beautify your smile following tooth loss.

Dental Implants

Dental implants are the only form of tooth replacement that addresses the missing root. As such, dental implants are the only form of tooth replacement that will prevent jaw shrinkage and collapse. Other tooth replacement options, such as dentures or dental bridges, can help prevent tooth slippage, bite alterations, and other consequences of missing teeth, but implants alone offer full smile restoration. During your initial consultation at our Houston office, Dr. Khavari will discuss this in greater detail to ensure you are selecting the tooth replacement option that is most ideal for your needs.

I absolutely love this Dentist!! I’ve been taking my babies here for almost 5 years now and I wouldn’t take them any other place.
