Missing Teeth Hunt Valley, MD

Missing TeethAn Overview

Missing teeth are more than just a cosmetic concern. Left untreated, missing teeth can begin to effect the quality of your life and cause oral and systemic health problems. If you are missing one tooth or all of your teeth, it is important to seek treatment as soon as possible. Dr. Roham Rafat, DDS, MS of Valley Dental Health is one of the most highly trained periodontists in the Baltimore area. Dr. Rafat offers complete implant dentistry services in our office.

Missing teeth can negatively impact your speech, nutrition, and oral hygiene. Left untreated, missing teeth increase your risk of developing dental and systemic health concerns. Missing teeth can lead to bone loss, jaw recession, additional missing teeth, shifting of teeth and increase your risk of tooth decay. Patients with missing teeth also have an increased risk of developing gum disease, cardiovascular disease, and inflammation. Replacing your missing teeth can restore the function, health, and beauty to your smile.

Your Valley Dental Health dentist will conduct a thorough oral health exam to determine which missing tooth replacement option will offer you optimal oral health. Whenever possible your dentist may recommend the use of dental implants for their longevity, stability and natural look and feel. Valley Dental Health offers:
