It is a fact that none of us lives in a perfect world. Regardless of how well you care for your teeth, you may still have dental health problems. Unbearable toothaches, damaged teeth, and adult tooth loss can result into many inconveniences in your daily life and damaging effects to your general health. In some cases, these problems are simply genetic. If one of your parents had bad teeth, the odds are that you will, too. It is important to replace missing teeth and restore damaged teeth as a preventive measure against more complicated health issues including an abscessed tooth or TMJ disorder.
