Biology of tooth loss


Your teeth affect your whole body. When your teeth are healthy, you’re healthier too. A missing tooth can affect your bite, speech and eating choices. When you lose a tooth, you rely more on your remaining teeth which can cause overloading and wear out your remaining teeth prematurely. As your remaining teeth can shift to accommodate a missing tooth, you may also experience headaches and/or jaw pain. 
Implants are a great option to replace missing teeth! Implants have changed many patients lives as they act just like your natural teeth. The procedure is routine and they have a high rate of success when placed in the ideal location with ideal supporting bone and soft tissue. They safeguard and preserve your bone structure, oral health, and appearance. Your dentist and Dr. Pashkowsky will provide you with options to treat tooth loss so you can make the most informed decision concerning tooth replacement.



When you lose a tooth, bone loss follows. Generally, people will lose 25% of their supporting bone within the first year after tooth loss and rebuilding bone becomes more complex over time. It’s important to restore missing teeth as soon as possible to avoid these complications. Schedule an appointment with us today! Ph: 714-706-1221
