We all remember losing our teeth as children and being delighted to find money from the tooth fairy under our pillow, but it’s not as fun now that we are adults. According to the National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research, adults between the ages of 20 and 64 have an average of 25 permanent teeth remaining, which is three shy of a full set (minus wisdom teeth). Dr. Byron Scott wants everyone in Mobile to know that replacing a missing tooth is important to your dental health. Read on for more information and please give Springhill Dental Health Center a call with any questions or concerns.
When people lose teeth in movies it’s usually from something high-impact and exciting! However, real-life causes teeth to start to disappear by way of gum disease. If you are a Mobile adult who has lost a tooth in the back of your mouth, you might be inclined to ignore it if it doesn’t affect your smile. Unfortunately, missing teeth are a big problem beyond cosmetic concern. Tooth loss can affect your ability to eat and speak properly, the alignment of your teeth, the health of your surrounding teeth, and can cause bone loss.
Dr. Scott is an expert in replacing missing teeth with the best options for your cosmetic and dental health needs. If you are missing one or more teeth, there are fixed and removable bridges, dentures, and implants. Currently, dental medicine and research favor implant as the best treatment option because of the longevity, strength, and stability.
We at Springhill Dental Health Center want you to have the healthy, beautiful smile you deserve, so come visit us and find out what Dr. Byron Scott can do for you. Give us a call to schedule an appointment today!
My visit was incredible. I had my “All on Four” appliances cleaned, and it was a painless and thorough experience. Dr. Scott and all his staff are very friendly. During the cleaning, Mary was gentle and let me know everything she was doing and how it would feel. She gave me tips on how to clean my implants/appliances better and gave me a small brush to do the underside more effectively. Dr. Scott and Mary suggest cleanings take place every 3 months so I will be back in December.
