How important are teeth to our quality of life?

Unfortunately, healthy teeth cannot be taken for granted, as we are sure you will agree. Age plays no role – anyone can be affected by the loss of a tooth as a result of gum disease, tooth decay or due to an accident.

The loss of teeth can be restrictive in many ways. Gaps in the teeth lead to a deterioration in the overall dental situation and can also have a considerable effect on diet, speech, laughter, health and well-being. Missing teeth are replaced primarily for functional, esthetic and health reasons. The choice of tooth replacement depends, most of all, on the number and position of the missing teeth, and the condition of the neighboring teeth. In addition to dental implants, the missing teeth can also be replaced by full removable dentures or fixed bridges. You should discuss the advantages and disadvantages of these solutions with your dentist.

speak and chew better.
