Why do people lose their teeth?

Periodontal disease

Gum disease is the #1 cause of tooth loss. Bacteria will slowly damage your jaw bone, causing your teeth to become loose or fall out completely. 

Tooth decay & damage

Untreated tooth decay requires either a root canal or an extraction. Other issues like excessive wear, cracks, and chips can compromise the strength of your tooth.

Accidents

A lost tooth can also be caused by accidents like slips and falls, car collisions, contact sports, and other impact injuries. 

Are missing teeth bad?

There are some situations where replacing a tooth may not be necessary. For example, if you have a tooth removed to address a crowded jaw. Wisdom teeth are also often removed to improve your health.

However, in most cases, replacing your tooth is very important:

Did you know…

Roughly 30% of adults will lose a tooth and need a tooth replacement at some point in their life.

After losing a tooth, the surrounding bone will wear away, leading to even more lost teeth.

Missing even just one tooth can hurt your ability to chew and speak normally.

What is the best tooth-replacement option in Medford?

Dental implants are the best way to replace missing teeth. A dental implant fills the gaps left by a missing tooth, replacing your tooth’s root and restoring your smile. Unlike traditional dentures, an implant strengthens your jawbone and provides a stable foundation for the visible portion of your implant — usually a crown, dental bridge, or fixed denture.

Can you replace a single tooth?

Yes! No matter how many teeth you’re missing, there are options for you. At our Rogue Valley dentist office, we can replace any number of missing teeth — from one tooth to an entire arch of teeth.

What is the cheapest way to replace a missing tooth in Medford?

Dental implants are more expensive than a tooth replacement option like removable dentures, but they are well worth the investment. Dental implants not only fully restore the look of your smile, but also protect your dental health and can last 30 years or longer with proper care

Additionally, we partner with surgical specialists who offer a “global fee structure” as a way to accurately quote the total cost of your treatment. You’ll know what cost to expect from the start.
