3 Reasons to Replace Missing Teeth Gainesville, GA
Dental Patient Gainesville GA

As much as we want to retain our natural teeth for life, it doesn’t always happen. Teeth can fall out or demand removal due to accidental trauma, severe decay and other unfortunate circumstances. The good news is that modern dentistry offers several options to replace missing teeth so that you don’t have to carry on with a gapped or toothless smile. Whether you have lost one tooth or a full arch of teeth, here are some important reasons to take advantage of restorative dentistry and rebuild your smile!

#1 Protecting Your Appearance
It is not hard to convince patients about the threats that missing teeth can pose to their appearance. A missing tooth in the front of your smile can sabotage your overall appearance and make you feel self-conscious about the way you look.

#2 Avoiding Chewing and Speaking Challenges
Each tooth in your smile is designed to support specific functional aspects of your mouth. This includes helping you eat and chew as well as allowing you to speak and pronounce certain words. When a missing tooth is not replaced, you can suffer serious consequences to your everyday dental function.

#3 Shifting Teeth
Don’t make the mistake of assuming that your smile can carry on fine with missing teeth. Just one missing tooth can trigger an unwanted chain of events inside your mouth. Over time, the neighboring teeth will migrate towards the empty space. This can cause misalignment in your smile and make cleaning more difficult. Some patients struggle with frequent decay, jaw problems and other issues due to the shifting of teeth.

Ready to replace that missing tooth? Time is of the essence. The longer you wait to replace a missing tooth or teeth, the better chance you’ll suffer bone loss, shifting teeth and other dental health challenges. Ask our talented team at Gainesville Dental Group about our restorative dental treatments such as custom dentures and bridges. We can rebuild your smile after missing teeth!

Bev M.

Very happy with the staff at Gainesville Dental Group. The doctors are caring and experienced. I never am left in the waiting room. The hygienist always ask thorough questions and report to the doctor before the exam, saving me from having to repeat everything. Highly recommend.

I came to Gainesville Dental Group with a crown that was in bad shape and painful. Dr. Vetter was very knowledgeable about what needed to be done and went to great lengths to ensure the treatment to resolve the problem was in my best interest. He and assistant Sarah Riley were very professional yet personable. They worked together seamlessly in a manner that put me at ease and were very focused on fixing the tooth. Any physical discomfort was minimal and both Dr. Vetter and Sarah were encouraging and positive. A very good experience.

I come to Gainesville Dental Group for my routine cleanings and absolutely love it! It’s very clean and I love how up to date they are with digital X-rays and photos of the teeth. I had to have a filling and they were able to point out on the screen where my cavity was on the X-ray. It’s much easier getting the work done when you have an understanding of what the doctor is doing! Dr. Vetter did my filling and the whole procedure was pain free! I can’t say enough good things about this group!

Dr. Gannon and Hannah were great. They talked me thru my procedure and made sure I was comfortable and pain free. The office was friendly and pleasant. My hubby and son have used them and liked them. I've found a new dentist! Thank You GDG.

This is by far the best dental group I have been to in a long time. The staff is wonderful and caring. From the front office to the Dentists are a class act. Very kind and explain step by step. High quality work. Don't plan on going anywhere else. My husband has had the same experience. Do yourself a favor and check them out. Tell them Lorrie sent you

Great dental visit! Went in for annual cleaning and x-rays. Donna did an awesome job and pointed out a potential issue which she brought up to the doctor who concurred. It was an excellent visit. Thank you to the "team" @ Gainesville Dental Group.
