Did you know that even the loss of one tooth might result in the tipping, drifting and erupting of neighboring and opposing teeth? The loss of several teeth can result in the inability to chew and speak effectively. It can also lead to the collapse of your bite causing stress on your jaw joints and facial muscles. There may be a reduction in the vertical dimension of your face resulting in an older facial appearance and noticeable facial lines. Dr. Landisi considers all these factors when determining how best to achieve dental aesthetics that are in harmony with your physiology.
