Missing Teeth and Your Health

Missing Teeth Help

Did you know that 120 million Americans are missing at least 1 tooth? Millions of people lose their teeth every year because of trauma, heredity, gum disease (periodontitis) and decay. In fact, nearly 1 in 5 of adults aged 65 or older have lost all of their teeth. Dental implants can be used to replace individual or multiple missing teeth. As a board-certified prosthodontist, Dr. Natalie Baker specializes in the restoration and replacement of damaged or missing teeth.

Missing teeth can severely impact an individual’s self-confidence, job prospects, and ability to chew properly. Loose and ill-fitting partials or dentures can be uncomfortable and embarrassing. Replacing missing teeth with a dental prosthesis can restore a person’s ability to eat and speak, promotes self esteem, and reduces social isolation, factors which contribute to a person’s emotional and physical well-being.

Dental implants are a durable and long-term solution for the replacement of missing teeth or the stabilization of new or existing dentures. Dental implants have been used for over 40 years, and with proper care and oral hygiene, can last a lifetime.

Prosthodontists are uniquely qualified to replace missing teeth due to extensive training using state of the art technology and procedures. Prosthodontists are the most highly trained restorative dentists in the country, practicing evidence based dentistry, which is the reason why you should choose a specialist when it comes to your smile.
