What are Some of the Consequences of Missing Teeth?
Many people think that losing one tooth, or even a few, isn’t a big deal and that tooth replacement is unnecessary. Unfortunately, the loss of even one tooth can have a negative effect on your whole smile. Some of the oral health consequences of tooth loss include:
- Increased risk for cavities and gum disease: Missing teeth actually provide more places for plaque and tartar to hide, especially once missing teeth have caused the remaining teeth to shift into awkward positions.
- Shifting teeth and changes in bite: Other teeth will move into the space left behind by missing teeth. This causes major changes to your bite, and bite changes can spell problems for your TMJ, or temporomandibular joints. Missing teeth can increase problems with teeth grinding, and pressure caused by a shift in your bite can cause further tooth loss.
- Loss of jawbone: Your jawbone has a specific job to do – it holds teeth in place. When a tooth goes missing, the jawbone no longer serves a function and begins to deteriorate in the spot where the tooth used to be.
- Changes in facial shape: Your teeth support your facial muscles, and without them, your face will begin to sag, making you look older and changing your appearance.
Dental implants from Torbram Dental in Brampton, Ontario can help counteract all of these missing tooth problems. Dental implants increase your confidence in your smile, provide reliable tooth replacement, and offer very predictable success rates. These are just some of the reasons to choose dental implants for tooth replacement.
Benefits of Dental Implants
Dental implants provide your smile with increased strength and stability. Missing teeth seriously diminish quality of life, interrupting your ability to speak, eat, and smile with confidence. In fact, missing teeth can negatively impact your overall health, making eating difficult to the point of causing nutritional deficiencies. You have different options for tooth replacement, of course, but Dr. Vince Fava recommends dental implants whenever possible for a number of reasons.
The benefits of dental implants include:
- Ability to eat and speak freely
- Bone support to prevent bone loss
- Long-lasting comfort and function
- No embarrassing slippage
- Better facial support for a more youthful appearance
Dr. Fava can perform the surgical implantation of your dental implants, as well as providing the dental crown that completes this tooth replacement procedure.
Indications for Dental Implants
When you’ve lost one or more teeth, we’ll get started creating your personalized treatment plan at a tooth replacement consultation. Each plan will be different, but we will usually recommend the following:
Missing One Tooth
A single lost tooth can be replaced with one implant post supporting a custom crafted dental crown.

Missing Multiple Teeth
Two or more teeth in a row can be replaced using a dental implant supported fixed bridge. Two dental implants are positioned to support either end of the implant-retained bridge. Several consecutive and nonconsecutive teeth can be replaced using a dental implant supported partial denture. In most cases, the partial denture can be supported with between two and four implant posts.

Missing All Teeth
Dr. Fava can replace a single tooth with dental implants, and he can also provide you with implant-supported dentures. Implant-supported dentures are removable, just like traditional dentures, but instead of relying on natural suction or dental adhesives to stay in place, they attach to dental implants surgically implanted in your jawbone. Implant-supported dentures are a great option for people who are missing all of their teeth along an arch but want the stability and slip prevention of dental implants.
