From feedbacks of our patients we know that many people believe that replacing missing tooth is only a matter of aesthetics.
From a purely professional point of view this is untrue. In fact, we consider anatomical aspects first and foremost when making suggestion for implant treatment. Aesthetics are equally important thus we put great emphasize on them, too. The difference is that while aesthetics are well-known and noticeable, anatomical concerns are hardly prominent and their consequences often remain hidden.
If you are putting off the replacement of your missing teeth for a long time you might face serious health consequences. Symptoms may be hard to define but when negative phenomena start taking shape, simple and easy solutions are probably no longer available.
Threats to face if you ignore the replacement of missing teeth:
threats on surrounding teeth:
Too much space, load and pressure on the otherwise healthy teeth could make them move away.
threats on jaw joints:
Overloading the joints as a result of unbalanced chewing can cause fatigue or pan in the joints.
Threats on the bone:
The permanent absence of teeth results in significant bone loss.
That could make dental implantation impossible, or could involve expensive and time-consuming bone reconstruction procedures in the treatment.
These risk factors are simply avoidable. The secret is the time: the earlier you have these problems fixed with implants for instance the bigger the chance is that you can avoid long-term health risks.
The health-conscious and farsighted thinking has major significance, not only because one can realize savings by avoiding future medical treatments but also because they can do a lot to preserve their own health.
