Do I really need to replace my missing teeth?
Missing teeth should be replaced as quickly as possible to prevent discomfort and to avoid future problems with your remaining teeth, such as shifting of adjacent teeth. We have several options available to replace your missing teeth including dental bridges, implants, and dentures.
In addition to the physical problems posed by missing teeth, many people who have lost teeth quickly realize that missing teeth can have an enormous social consequence as well. There’s a stigma associated with missing teeth, and others may make unfair and untrue judgments about you.
People who are missing teeth often begin to feel self-conscious about their experience and may experience a drop in self-esteem and self-confidence. In time, some people even develop depression. You may find yourself more likely to avoid social situations and you may miss out on many things that life has to offer.
You shouldn’t have to deal with these problems. There’s a solution that’s right for you, and we’ll help you find it.
If you are missing teeth, please call our Kirkland, WA dental office today to schedule an examination and consultation with Dr. Jen Kim. We will discuss your options with you and make a recommendation that will fit your needs and lifestyle.
