You may not be aware of how your missing teeth are compromising your oral health. Engineered Smiles has a variety of procedures to restore those missing teeth, improve your smile and steer you back toward optimal oral health.
Missing teeth may be affecting your overall health, and not just the aesthetics of your smile. When you are missing teeth in front, your smile is not very appealing, and this can have an effect on your social standing, self-esteem and self-confidence. When you are missing teeth in the back, you are also missing chewing surface, which means the foods you eat are not being adequately broken down before you swallow. This affects the quality of the nutrients your body is able to absorb. Larger pieces of food are more difficult to digest and do not break down as well in your digestive tract.
In addition to having an effect on your ability to chew properly and the appearance of your smile, the space left by missing teeth can cause the remaining teeth to move out of place. Misalignment occurs when the teeth adjacent to the open space twist out of position or lean into the space. This can create food traps, which can lead to gingivitis or decay when these areas become difficult to clean.
Filling in the missing spaces restores your complete smile and/or gives you back the chewing surface needed to get the full benefits of the healthy foods you eat. Our restorative dentistry procedures include:
After examining your teeth, bone structure and gums, Dr. Wang will make an assessment and advise you on the best options for restoring your missing teeth.
Complete Dental Restorations
Whether you need one tooth replaced or a full arch of teeth, there are options available to fit your individual needs. Some patients prefer removable dentures while others enjoy the convenience and security of dentures secured by dental implants. Single tooth implants are often more desirable than traditional bridgework. We will work with you to find the best solution to your missing teeth problem.
