Missing Teeth Marietta, GA

While genetic factors might result in a person being born without certain teeth, there are other causes of missing teeth that are not related to a congenital or systemic condition. These include tooth decay, gum disease or an injury. In either case, however, it is important to replace missing teeth. The American College of Prosthodontists (ACP) explains that missing teeth disrupts proper function (chewing food, jaw support and stability) and causes the teeth next to and above the missing teeth to shift. Moreover, it is much easier to address the problem of missing teeth early than to wait until surrounding teeth have moved significantly.

While dentists devote ample time educating patients on the dangers of missing teeth, the reality is that the average adult between the ages of 20 and 64 has three or more decayed or missing teeth (Mouth Healthy). If you are one of these individuals, it’s important to understand that there are several options available to help restore the function and appearance of your smile.

Dental Bridges: With varying types, dental bridges effectively “bridge” the gap where missing teeth used to be, and are often attached and supported by adjacent teeth.

Dentures: If an individual has more than a few missing teeth, dentures are a removable appliance that mimic the natural appearance of a person’s teeth. Whether dentures include a full set of teeth, or if an overdenture is recommended to fit over a few remaining teeth, advancements in dentures have made them easier to adjust to and more comfortable than ever before.

Dental Implants: As a long-term solution for missing teeth, dental implants are surgically implanted. Though it takes a few visits over the course of a few months to place the implants, they are the closest to one’s natural teeth and they can last for many years.

At Pure Smiles Dentistry, we realize that missing teeth can jeopardize your oral health, and that’s why our cosmetic and restorative dental team goes above and beyond to help replace your missing teeth and boost your self-esteem. Call today to schedule your appointment.

  • Kim P.

    Dr Patel answered my call for practically in the middle of the night. He came and had no other appointments for the day! Just to help me. The facility was immaculate and him and his hygienist were so helpful. I wish I remembered her name. It had been a while since I had been to the dentist and they never made me feel judged. Great team of people. If you are looking for a dentist give Dr. P and his team a try you won't be disappointed! See u in 2 weeks Dr. P.!i

  • Lisa O.

    Hands down the best dentist I have found. I took all three of my kids and myself. This is a welcoming, child-friendly team. It is readily apparent how well this team works together to make every patient, no matter what age, feel comfortable. I appreciate these people so much. Thank you for being such an outstanding dentist team, Pure Smiles!

  • Carmelita Ch.-H.

    Doctor/Staff is very friendly, knowledgeable and professional. Always make sure you feel comfortable. Pam is an excellent Hygienist. Office space is always clean and tidy. I would recommend this office as we have been going there for the past 12 years.

  • Hudson H.

    I usually HATE the dentist! I saw all these good reviews and was a bit skeptical, but after visiting this office I now know they’re all legit. Pure Smiles made me feel comfortable and was very considerate to me. I normally leave the dentist angry, this time however I was so pleased! Everyone was empathetic and went over and beyond to help me. Everything from scheduling to payment options, they cared. I actually want to floss now.

  • Michelle P.

    I only have positive things to say about Dr.Patel and the staff at Pure Smiles in Marietta. I was in bad shape with a wisdom tooth that needed to be removed. I was seen the same morning that I called, and everything was finished in under an hour. I received a check-up call that afternoon, which I felt was very thoughtful. I went back for an overall exam the following week, and I left their office feeling great about my future dental health. Do not hesitate to call Pure Smiles. The staff is kind, efficient, and up-to-date on dental advances.
