Options to Consider When Replacing Missing Teeth

Replace Missing Teeth | Doylestown PA Dentist

Tooth loss in the US is far more prevalent than you might think. The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) conducted a health survey that shows nearly 40 million Americans are missing all their teeth in one or both jaws.

It’s More Than a Gap in Your Smile

To understand why replacing a missing tooth is critical, you should first know that the gap in your smile does a lot more than just affect your psychological well-being and your ability to interact comfortably with others.

What happens if I lose a tooth?

Dental Implants in Doylestown PA

You or a loved one may lose a permanent tooth (not including wisdom teeth) at some point. Losing just one tooth can set off a cascade of events in your mouth.  The first thing people tend to notice is the physical appearance of missing a tooth.  Within the first month of losing that tooth, you will lose 25% of the bone in that area!

dental implants doylestown pa

A large percentage of patients that receive dental implants have a dental CT scan.  This scan is different from a medical CT in the sense that has much less radiation and it only images the head and neck.  Dental professionals use these scans to evaluate bone levels, pathology, virtually plan implant placement, and many other applications.  However, these scans also provide us with other incidental but important information.  

CT Scan Findings

One such finding is the presence of calcifications (build ups of calcified plaque) of the main arteries in the neck (carotid artery).  These calcifications have been linked to increased risk for atherosclerosis, stroke, brain atrophy, and compromised circulation in both ...
