Why Should I Replace Missing Teeth?
Patients can experience tooth loss for a range of different reasons. For instance, some patients may lose their teeth due to dental trauma, periodontal disease, tooth damage, tooth decay, or health reasons. Understanding the underlying cause of tooth loss is key to restoring your smile and reducing the risk of future tooth loss. Our team will assess your teeth, gums, and jaw bone to determine which tooth replacement solution is right for you.
When a tooth is lost, the neighboring teeth may begin to shift. Not only can this lead to crooked teeth, but it can also affect the way you chew and speak. In advanced cases, tooth loss can also lead to bone tissue loss in the jaw. When the bone underneath the teeth deteriorate, it can result in facial sagging and difficulties chewing and speaking. In order for the jaw to remain intact, it needs to be stimulated on a regular basis, and when a tooth is lost, the bone underneath that tooth is no longer stimulated.
What Are My Treatment Options For Missing Teeth?
As an experienced prosthodontist in Skokie, IL. Dr. Stein is highly skilled in the replacement of missing teeth. He takes a personalized approach to patient care to ensure that each of our patients is receiving a treatment plan that is specially designed to meet their dental needs.
To determine which tooth replacement option will best suit your needs, we will perform a complete dental examination. During the exam, we will assess the overall health and function of the gums, jaw bone, and remaining teeth using advanced dental technology, such as the intra-oral camera, cone beam imaging, and panoramic x-rays. Our goal is to gain a comprehensive view of your mouth in order to determine which tooth replacement solution is right for you.

- Dental Implants
- Dentures & Partials
