Know Tooth Loss Causes And What Dental Bridges Can Do

You may think that the majority of the time when a tooth is lost that the situation could not be avoided. While that could be true in certain instances, it’s definitely not always the case.

Sure, you could accidentally knock out or severely damage a tooth to the point that it could not be repaired. You could be walking to the bathroom in the middle of the night and trip over a toy left out by your young child or go stumbling over the family dog. Sometimes freak accidents occur, that’s true.

But there are also situations that could be prevented. For example, if you or a loved one like to engage in certain physical activities, a dental injury could easily occur. But by visiting our office for a custom athletic mouthguard, you could avoid this situation. Some contact sports like football and boxing require mouthguards but here are a few other activities that you should consider wearing a mouthguard during:

  • Gymnastics
  • Extreme sports, like skateboarding
  • Basketball
  • Hockey
  • Racquetball
  • Skiing
  • Snowboarding

Neglected oral hygiene could also eventually lead to tooth loss.

For instance, you could develop a cavity. The pain from it is noticeable but definitely bearable. You’re really busy so you decide to wait to take care of it. Eventually, the cavity grows to the point that you need a root canal. You’ve heard a lot of urban myths about root canals, so you avoid the problem. Before you know it, the pain is too much and you visit your dentist, only to learn it’s too late and the tooth will need to be extracted.

A tooth could also be lost due to a problem that doesn’t necessarily begin with your tooth but with your gums instead. If you don’t maintain good oral hygiene and regular dental cleanings and exams, you could become one of the millions of Americans with gum disease. Left unchecked, the infection could spread throughout your mouth and lead to tooth loss.

Regardless of how or why you lose a tooth, we can fix the problem for you. We will review your treatment options and explain the steps for each so you can make an informed decision.

So long as your jaw and the teeth surrounding the gap are healthy and strong, a dental bridge is typically a great option for replacing one or multiple adjacent missing teeth. Depending on your situation, we can even attach a dental bridge to dental implants for a convincing feel and powerful hold.

We will do everything we can to make your restorative procedure as comfortable as possible. We even offer dental sedation options to put you at ease and relieve your dental anxiety. If there’s anything we can do to improve your visit, just let us know!
