The Impact of a Single Missing Tooth

Posted on 11/27/2017 by Dr. Mark Waring
 Missing Tooth Mark C. Waring, DDS AZ 85282
You may not realize it, but the loss of one tooth can cause a whole lot of problems. You might think that just losing one tooth won't be a problem, but it can cause the other teeth to drift.

We can help you when this happens. Contact us if you lose a tooth, and we will make an appointment for you to come in and get it fixed for you. Although we will help, here is some information on the impact of a single missing tooth.

Other Teeth Will Drift

When one tooth falls out, this can cause the other teeth to drift. They can come out of alignment. Because of this, you will need to see us so we can replace the missing tooth for you.

Bone Loss on Teeth

Not only will the other teeth drift and come out of alignment, but you can also lose bone in your teeth. This is a problem and will need to be fixed before the remaining teeth do start to suffer from bone loss and start to rot away. We can fix this by replacing the missing tooth and prevent the other teeth from losing bone.

Periodontal Disease

Although losing a tooth can cause the other ones to drift and lose bones in them, this is nothing compared to getting a periodontal disease because of one single missing tooth. No one wants to get the periodontal disease so seeing us before this does happen to you is the best idea for you.

Because of the problems of a single missing tooth can cause you, you will need to contact us for an appointment for us to prevent all of these problems from happening. Schedule an appointment with us as soon as possible once you have lost your tooth or if it starts to become loose.

If you have any questions or would like to schedule an appointment, please call us at (480) 820-4342 today.
