Is an empty space in your smile causing you to miss out on eating your favorite foods? Maybe you no longer smile as often as you used to because you are insecure about your appearance? At Tarpon Shores Dental, we have the solutions you need to replace missing teeth. Besides a traditional bridge, we also offer dental implants in Venice.

Often, when a tooth is lost many people tend to delay having it replaced because it is only one; however, the longer you wait, the more severe the complications become. Every tooth is invaluable to your oral health. When even one is missing, it causes your jawbone to deteriorate because there is no longer a root to stimulate it.
As you lose density in your jaw, your remaining teeth also lose support. This causes them to drift toward the open space, leading to bite and alignment issues. Your teeth become harder to clean, increasing your risk of tooth decay and gum disease. As more time passes, you have a heightened risk of additional tooth loss as you lose more of your jawbone.
