Do other people notice your missing teeth? What does that say about you?

Do other people notice your missing teeth? What does that say about you?

Every single day of your life you use your teeth. Your teeth help you chew your food, support facial muscles and also, help you with talking clearly? Many people even have dreams about their teeth falling out. This is their subconscious using real life experiences in childhood when baby teeth naturally fall out. In many cases, they experienced teasing from siblings or friends and feelings of a loss of control mixed with the added challenges of adolescents. As an adult, losing teeth can be filled with a certain social and even economic angst. Dr. Husain understands all this and also wants to help by keeping you aware of any possible issues before they arise

The longer we tend to live, the more the damage our bodies endure, and certainly, our teeth are no exception. Teeth can break down and sometimes are beyond saving. There are people who do live without teeth, but even if one tooth is missing is will effect all the others. The surrounding teeth will shift and sag into the space left behind and the jaw gets out of alignment. The sagging teeth now need to take up more of the work and will wear faster and can even break. After years in this condition, it becomes a domino effect and the damage will continue. While Canadian dental professionals have been and are dedicated to preventing dental disease the amount of people with missing teeth has significantly fallen over the last 40 years.

Dr. Husain has excellent options for replacing broken or missing teeth. There are different types of crowns and bridges that can exactly mimic the lost tooth. Dental implants are another option for restoring teeth and holding dentures well in place. Dr. Husain offers all these options and services and would be more than happy to discuss them with you.
