Dental Implant | Woodin Creek Dental

Missing one or more teeth is more than just an esthetic issue. Although people might make judgments about you because of your missing teeth, this might be something you are willing to overlook. But the problem with missing even one tooth is that you are putting the health of the rest of your teeth at risk.

When there is a space in your mouth, your remaining teeth will eventually begin to shift to fill in that empty space. This compromises your bite and can cause your teeth to become unduly worn. This can also lead to another serious problem—the loss of more teeth.

Don’t put your oral health at risk. Filling in ...

Older Woman Smiling | Woodin Creek Dental

If you are missing teeth, you might have already conducted research. You may have discovered that dentures are the most common way for people to replace missing teeth, especially if they are entirely edentulous (missing all their teeth). If the idea of dentures is not appealing, you might also be considering dental implants.

Dental Crown Woodinville WA | Smiling woman brushing teeth

Avoid Chewy, Sticky, and Hard Foods

Foods such as caramel, nougat, Tootsie rolls, toffee, and raisins can stick to the crown, pulling at it. Chewing gum can do the same. All of ...
