The American Dental Association (ADA) reports that about half of all American adults will have lost one or more teeth by age 50. By age 65, that number jumps to almost 75% of adults. When you lose a tooth, you lose more than many people realize. Downriver Smiles and Dr. Cory Gaunt offer professional, experienced restorative dentistry in Spokane for those who have lost one or more teeth.
Missing teeth do more than just leave a hole in your smile. The lost tooth means less facial structure, as the missing tooth root does not stimulate the jawbone. Other, neighboring teeth can shift out of position and into the gap, causing misalignments and greater difficulty keeping your teeth clean. Plus, no one wants to show a gap in their smile. Dr. Gaunt is an experienced restorative dentist, and he and our team at Downriver Smiles can explain more about each of our options for replacing missing teeth. The options we offer include:
With the modern advancements in restorative dentistry, there are dental options for nearly every need and budget. Losing teeth in Spokane does not have to be a permanent event; call us today, and schedule a consultation for restorative dentistry.
