What Does A Missing Tooth Say About You?

San Diego Mini-Implants When you meet a person in San Diego who is missing a front tooth, what does that say to you?

Do you wonder if they were in an accident?

Do you immediately start making assumptions about their income, level of education and overall physical health?

It’s Unfair…

Even if a man or woman is impeccably dressed and groomed, a missing front tooth detracts from the overall nice presentation.

How Does it Lower Your Quality of Life?

Here is one woman’s story:

I lost my job and along with it my dental insurance, then a month later, one of my front teeth. It has been very hard to find work…. and I know the missing tooth has cost me several jobs.”

Missing teeth can be a big deal. Here’s another experience:

I had a car accident three years ago. Two of my teeth were damaged and had to be extracted. For six months I had a big gap in my smile. I have to make sales calls for my job. I felt so self-conscious it affected my work. I tried a dental bridge, but it was hard to clean. One of the adjacent teeth ended up getting decay. I needed a permanent solution.

Better Than Dentures

Dental implants not only restore oral health, but they also restore self-confidence. Tooth implants are a long-term solution for missing teeth.

Studies have shown that after more than 20 years, the vast majority of dental implants continue to function at peak performance. If properly cared for, dental implants can last a lifetime.
