Missing Teeth Q & A

Is it common to have missing teeth?

Missing a tooth is more common than you probably think. According to the American Dental Association, 91% of adults between the ages of 20-64 have serious dental decay, sometimes resulting in missing or broken teeth.

What causes missing teeth?

You can be lacking the proper number of teeth for many reasons. Here are a few:

  • Decay from sweets and mouth bacteria
  • Severe injury to the tooth and its root that cannot be repaired
  • Gum disease from illness, medications and poor dental care.
  • Genetic disorders

What are my tooth replacement options?

There are many solutions to take care of the appearance and functionality of your teeth at Cain Denture Centers. As a denturist, Robert Cain can perform an evaluation and come up with a plan for replacing your teeth based on the amount that is missing in your mouth.

If you still have some teeth remaining, a great option is partial dentures, which are firmly anchored with your teeth.

If all of your teeth are gone from an area, you may need a set of full dentures for your top teeth, bottom teeth, or both.

Another option is implant-supported dentures, which surgically create a place for your dentures to fasten in your mouth. This method prevents denture slipping while decreasing gum irritation.

Robert Cain has vast experience collaborating with dentists and oral surgeons to create the perfect denture to replace your missing teeth.

Why is it important to fix my smile?

A great smile not only gives you a boost in confidence about your appearance, but it helps you be a healthier person.

If you can chew comfortably and functionally, your nutrition and digestion are better. People who have trouble with missing teeth may skip certain foods because they are difficult to handle, or not chew them enough for their bodies to use.

Also, the teeth next to a missing tooth may shift, moving out of place or cause a bad bite. That makes the problem worse and can injure your jaw and cause bone loss.

Missing teeth also cause your face to sag in specific areas, causing you to look older than you are.
