Missing Teeth and The Replacement Options

Causes of missing teeth

Causes of Missing Teeth

Missing teeth in adults are a common issue. There can be several causes of missing teeth in adults.

  • Congenitally missing teeth: Some people are born to congenitally have missing teeth such as wisdom teeth, upper incisors or second premolars. Often, this is a hereditary condition.

Also, an inherited disorder called ectodermal dysplasia can also result in missing teeth.

  • Tooth decay leading to the destruction of tooth structure is the main reason for the loss of teeth. The condition results when patients delay the dental treatment as they think it’s not painful and not needing to be addressed not realizing most teeth are hard to save with simple fillings when the pain starts


If the missing teeth are left untreated, it can lead to various oral health issues. The front teeth start drifting, and molars start tilting over a long period leading to complex jaw problems. Fortunately, missing teeth is no longer a problem. There is a variety of options available to replace those missing teeth to restore the beauty as well as the functionality of your mouth.

Missing Teeth Dental Implant Solutions

Replacement Solution for Single Missing Tooth

A dental implant or bridge can be used to replace the single missing tooth. A dental bridge is a good option when you have teeth on both sides of the missing tooth. But it has a disadvantage. The adjacent teeth need to be prepared for the crown to provide support to the missing teeth bridge. We use dental implants to replace missing teeth as it does not need adjacent supporting teeth and prevents loss of bone related to missing teeth.
