Are you missing teeth? If yes, putting off replacement could mean more than ruining your smile and affecting your self-confidence.
The Many Consequences of Missing Teeth
Your teeth have three primary functions: chewing, helping to pronounce words and making up your smile. When one of your teeth is missing, those three functions are impaired — and your oral health suffers additional consequences in the long run. If you have a number of teeth lost to decay or periodontal disease and live in the Suffolk or Nassau County areas, you owe it to yourself to visit Farber Center for Periodontics & Dental Implants. We strive to offer the best dental implants and All-on-4 Long Island has available.
Not only is a missing tooth or row of teeth troublesome to your physical smile, but you could also suffer from malocclusion which is when your teeth become misaligned. When a tooth goes missing, your teeth eventually move to fill in the open space.
When it comes to missing teeth, it’s a use it or lose it scenario for maintaining bone density and jaw bone. When you need to replace an entire row of teeth, you can help avoid jawbone loss with All-on-4 dental implants.

How to Prevent Tooth Loss and Periodontal Disease
While we can offer a range of options to replace missing teeth, we encourage all of our patients to take the steps to prevent tooth loss in the first place.
Here are a few key tips:
- Don’t smoke – Tobacco and nicotine linger on teeth and rapidly increase tooth decay.
- Maintain a strict oral hygiene regimen – Brush for at least two minutes, two times a day and floss daily
- Visit your dentist at least every six months
- Eat a well-balanced diet than limits sugar intake

Remember: oral health begins with total body health.
