Dental Implants vs. Dentures in Modesto, CA
Are you looking for ways to fill gaps in your smile? Missing teeth can affect your self-confidence and make it difficult to enjoy your favorite foods. Over time, missing teeth can cause a host of jaw and oral health problems. Dr. Roy Morita offers dental implants and dentures, two of the most popular tooth replacement options for patients of all ages.
WHY REPLACE MISSING TEETH?
You may be wondering why you need to replace missing teeth in the back of the mouth since those teeth are not affecting your smile. The truth is that a single missing tooth can trigger bone loss and affect your bite. Over time, teeth surrounding the missing tooth might drift into the open space or become crooked.
Several missing teeth can make it difficult to chew food properly and make you self-conscious when you smile — especially if teeth are missing in the front of the mouth. Delaying or neglecting treatment could lead to costly procedures later on.
