What to do About Missing or Extracted Teeth

You probably know someone, or you yourself, have a missing or recently extracted tooth. A common question patients ask is, “Do my missing or extracted teeth need to be replaced?” Teeth that are missing should be replaced, as missing teeth can impact how you chew, how you speak, and how your overall smile looks and makes you feel. Dental implants, dental bridges, or removable partial dentures are a few of the options that are available to replace teeth that are missing or have been extracted. Talk to your dentist today if you have questions about your missing teeth.
