WHY MISSING TOOTH?
People lost tooth for various reasons.
It could be because of a decayed tooth; it could be an accident; or it could be there wasn’t any to begin with (congenitally missing tooth or born without it).
IMPACT OF MISSING TOOTH
Some may think, we have 32 teeth, so what is the big deal of losing one?
Yes, we have 32 teeth, but every single one is unique and important in its way, just like our finger. You could hold a pen like before if you lost your thumb.
Missing a tooth means altering the function of your chewing and speaking.
On top of that, what comes along with a missing tooth is missing confidence.
You could never imagine a beauty queen in pageant with a missing tooth when she smiles, neither could you imagine if she smiles, a denture falls out from her mouth.
Here I have a very pretty lady, who unfortunately lost one of her front teeth due to accident when she was at her young age.
She is a dancer, she is gorgeous, she has everything that you wish you have as a lady.
However, she has this hidden pain of not confident to laugh out loud as she is using a denture.
She longer for a change; but she was also worried that something other than denture will be worse than what she had now.
After being in dilemma for a very long time, she finally decided to find a solution to it.
We discussed about different options and finally decided that a fixed fixed dental bridge (tooth bridge) would be the best solution in her case.
The missing tooth is a right upper central incisor. She is currently using an acrylic denture.
We decided to go for a fixed fixed bridge.
Now she will never have to worry that people will notice her denture , nor will she have to worry that the denture will fall out when she smiles.
She is now a truly gorgeous lady as she is born to it!
