Replacing a missing tooth or missing teeth is more than a matter of appearances—although that is certainly an important consideration. Dr. Thomas Neslund and the team at Carlisle Family and Cosmetic Dentistry in Carlisle, PA, want you to be comfortable with and proud of your smile. But in addition to that there are oral and general health concerns that make tooth replacement all the more important. Did you know, for example, that having one just missing tooth can lead to the development of gum disease or symptoms of TMJ (temporomandibular joint) disorder? And because missing teeth may making chewing difficult, some people actually are malnourished as a result. For these and other reasons, Dr. Neslund wants you to know about your tooth replacement choices at our office. One is certain to accommodate your lifestyle and your budget.
