Missing teeth can cause esthetic and functional issues with your smile. But not all missing teeth are due to decay or oral trauma. Sometimes our patients have congenitally missing teeth. These aren’t immediately obvious but become known when baby teeth fall out and their adult replacements fail to come in. Known as hypodontia, this is generally due to genetic factors. It can cause other teeth to come in crooked or shift out of place in the gaps. In these circumstances, special treatment is required. With her extensive experience, Dr. Rebecca Wagner, can give you a complete, healthy set of teeth for the first time. As a board-certified periodontist with decades of experience, she’s the one to trust for help with hypodontia in Chambersburg, PA.
Qualification for Treatment
It’s important that you or your child’s jawbone is fully developed before receiving treatment for hypodontia. For most people, that’s usually around the age of 18 or 20. Once we’ve established that your jaw has stopped growing, we can provide replacement teeth in the form of dental implants. Natural-looking and strong, these will restore the esthetic and functional properties of your missing teeth. Take proper care of them and they can provide reliable performance for you for a lifetime!
