Tooth decay, injury and gum disease are common causes of missing teeth. Some people are born with missing teeth or have a genetic disposition for missing teeth. They may have a baby tooth with no adult tooth underneath. The most common missing teeth are wisdom teeth either because they never emerged or were extracted.
It is important to replace missing teeth for a functional bite, proper chewing of food, to prevent bone loss, stop teeth from shifting and for an attractive smile.
Missing teeth can be replaced by placing a dental implant, removable partial dentures, or a bridge.
Treatment costs for missing teeth will vary depending on the approach. Your dentist can discuss the options available with you and help to inform your decision, as well as make recommendations accordingly.
