We live in a society where missing teeth make an unfortunate statement about us. Missing teeth are stigmatized and may lead people to make snap judgments about such personal details as our intelligence and our hygiene habits. These judgments are unfair and untrue, but they continue to persist.
In addition to the stigma surrounding missing teeth, they can make your life challenging in other ways, as well. Missing teeth are often uncomfortable, and they make it difficult to chew the fresh, healthy foods that you need and enjoy.
Withour proper dental care services, missing teeth cause another problem that you might not even be aware of. Your dental bone depends on your teeth to stimulate regrowth. When you are missing teeth, this relationship ends, and your dental bone begins to resorb, diminishing over time. This causes your other teeth to shift, tip, and become loose. Eventually, you are likely to lose more teeth.
Other tooth replacement options are unable to restore this relationship.
At Seacrest Dental, we are proud to offer advanced dental treatments to our patients in Miramar Beach, Santa Rosa Beach, Destin and the surrounding communities. Dental implants are one of those advanced treatments and actually have the ability to restore the balance between the roots of your teeth and your dental bone.
