Missing Teeth

Missing Teeth Replaced | Lewiston, Maine, General & Family Dentistry

Missing teeth can also affect both speech and eating, making chewing food more difficult. With time, the remaining teeth can shift and bone loss can occur.

Missing Teeth: What are the options?

Options to deal with this issue depend on the status of the tooth. Is it dead or dying, and so needs to be extracted? Also, has it been lost recently or some time ago?The average American adult is missing at least three or more teeth. So, you’re not the only one. It happens. But, there’s no need to live in dental pain. Here are some options if you’re dealing with missing teeth in Lewiston, Maine, and surrounding areas.

  • Dental Bridges: Either removable or fixed in place, dental bridges replace one or more teeth and are anchored to adjacent teeth. 
  • Dentures: If your loss of teeth has gotten to the point where you have few teeth left, partial or complete dentures may be the route to a happier smile for you.
  • Dental Implants: Very similar to natural teeth, dental implants replace missing teeth and last for years.

Ready To Get Started Restoring Your Smile?

Want another statistic geared toward making you feel okay about missing teeth? The average American loses 12 permanent teeth to trauma, tooth decay and/or gum disease by the age of 50. This is a battle for oral health that never stops, no matter our age

While this affects your smile, on a more functional level it can also affect the jawbone. We’re not going to let that happen, though. Our local Lewiston dentists are highly skilled in filling vacant space with dental bridges, dentures, or dental implants.

I had an unfortunate event (broken tooth) and a co-worker recommended Aspire. I couldn't be happier with the experience I have had - from the wonderful receptionist, amazing hygienist and ultimately Dr. Lee's mannerisms!! Everyone was so helpful, pleasant and understanding. They were able to get me right in and fix my tooth the same day!! Would recommend to anyone looking for a comforting staff that makes you feel safe in these crazy times!

"I was seen promptly and quickly put at ease with the Dr's kind gentle manner. Let's face it.....no one likes having to go to the dentist right? It was a great experience, no pressure and I was given "options" which really made me feel in control......I really appreciated that. With state of the art equipment, a clean professional office and excellent staff (thanks Linda!") I would HIGHLY recommend this office."

I always have the best experience at Aspire Family Dentistry, they all truly care for their patients at the highest level. All of the hygienists are super friendly, and very good at what they do. Dr. Lee always lightens the mood with chit chat and jokes - not to mention he is the best dentist I have ever had the pleasure of being a customer of. Also, I think the addition of the Television and the screen that shows the x-rays of your teeth is awesome! 10/10. Would recommend to everyone!
