The office of Wooddell & Passaro offers personalized solutions for replacing missing teeth. Using advanced dental technology and digital imagining, our dentists provide predictable and long-lasting results using the latest in implant and restorative techniques.
Tooth loss is often avoidable with proper preventative measures. Patients who routinely visit the dentist are less likely to develop dental health issues that cause tooth loss. Good oral hygiene and biannual dental health exams help diagnose health issues early and can prevent tooth loss.
Common causes of tooth loss include:
- Poor oral hygiene
- Gum disease
- Tooth decay
- Accident or trauma
- Sports Injury
Why Replace Missing Teeth?
Missing teeth compromise the natural structure and stability of your entire smile. Over time, the consequences of missing teeth present a broader range of systemic health complications. Replacing missing teeth as soon after the loss as possible can prevent secondary conditions from developing and protect against more complex complications.
Patients with missing teeth are more prone to developing:
- Gum disease
- Additional tooth loss
- Bone loss
- Facial regression
- Poor diet
Patients who replace their missing teeth experience an increase in function, form, and confidence. Many patients avoid replacing missing teeth or loose teeth due to a fear of visiting the dentist. Our team works with patients to ensure that they are safe, comfortable and confident in their decision to replace their missing teeth. We talk our patients through each phase of treatment and offer sedation dentistry options for your optimal comfort.
“After many years of frustration with my dental work, your recommendation and implementation of dental implants have significantly improved my oral health. The results are outstanding. You have a most exceptional staff and your expertise and professionalism are unmatched.” – George Torggler, Annapolis, MD
Replacing missing teeth can help you enjoy a more fulfilling life with a smile you feel proud to share.
