There is a Solution for Missing Teeth

Posted by Dr. Mark Kujiraoka in Uncategorized 15 Feb 2017

Missing teeth are more than just an esthetic issue, and if you are missing a tooth, it’s time to schedule an appointment with Mak DDS to determine if you are a good candidate for dental implants in Sacramento.

Dental Implants really are the best solution for teeth that are missing as the titanium steel posts act as tooth roots helping exercise your jawbone. However, according to Dr. Mark Kujiraoka from Mak DDS in Sacramento some other things could occur if you delay missing tooth replacement.

More Costly

Regardless of the reason for your missing tooth, it could lead to more painful and costly dental procedures in the future.

Affects your Other Teeth

Chewing on one side because you have a missing tooth will put more stress on the rest of your teeth, which could cause breakage. Missing teeth can also cause your other teeth to shift as they attempt to fill the gap.

Makes Eating Difficult

Forget those cashews and carrots that you love so much as missing teeth will make it more difficult to eat hard foods, especially if you have missing molars. Dental implants help you enjoy all of the foods that you haven’t been able to eat.

Overall Health

Because your missing teeth are not allowing you to enjoy a healthy diet, you may be missing out on the important nutrients that your body needs. Missing teeth can also cause gum disease, which according to recent studies, can lead to heart disease and stroke.


If you have a missing tooth in the front of your mouth, it will affect your self-esteem. Having missing teeth hurts your confidence and can affect your outlook on life. Missing teeth can also make you talk different, which could undermine your confidence as well.
