Luckily, these are all mostly preventable. By maintaining proper dental hygiene and regular dental checkups, it is easy to stay up to date on your dental health.
If you are missing a tooth (or multiple teeth), there are many possible fixes. For starters, implant-supported restorations are recommended usually, especially if a tooth (or teeth) have been missing for a long time. If a missing tooth is addressed early, then traditional replacement options are recommended. These include dental bridges, crowns, or dentures. However, implant-supported restorations are best for your overall future health, so we recommend these whenever is possible.
