Fact: The average adult between the ages of 20 and 64 has three or more missing teeth.
When you have one or more missing teeth it can affect how you eat and even speak. A missing molar can affect how you chew. When there is a space your remaining teeth may shift. In some cases bone loss can occur around the missing tooth.
There are options to help you if you are suffering from missing teeth.
See your dentist. Some of the options are bridges, implants and dentures. The dentist will discuss what would be best for you.
