A missing tooth? Dr. Hiers can help!
Losing a tooth by accident or by extraction is not the end of the matter. When a tooth is missing, the resulting gap will allow nearby teeth to tilt or drift from their normal position, and the teeth above the gap will move downward.
Aside from the obvious cosmetic problem, the changed positions of these teeth can lead to severe bite problems causing jaw pain and headaches.
Missing teeth should be replaced to keep other teeth in their normal position. This can be done by Dr. Hiers with a fixed bridge or a dental implant. Both of these treatments offer a good functional and cosmetic result.
Please call our office at (410) 205-4757 with any questions you may have about the benefits of replacing missing teeth with bridges or dental implants.
