Avalon Dental Group is committed to providing patients with the best dental care available and while we strongly advocate for preventive care, we understand that oral health is not a given in everyone’s life. By the time the average American reaches the age of 50, they have lost about a dozen of their permanent teeth. By age 70, many have lost 30% of their teeth. Restoration dentistry replaces those missing teeth and helps restore your oral health.
There are various reasons why a person may lose a tooth. The two main reasons for tooth loss are dental decay and periodontal disease. Decay is a main reason for tooth loss in most adults. But as people age, periodontal disease becomes a major culprit. Replacing the missing teeth prevents other dental problems from developing, some of which can result in costly repairs.
Restorative dentistry helps you get back to your best oral health. It also helps you feel better about yourself by improving your appearance. Missing teeth not only affect your oral health, but also your general health and well-being, along with your appearance.
At Avalon Dental Group we provide a variety of restorations:
Regardless of the number of teeth you are missing, we have a solution to restore your oral health, ability to eat nutritious foods and improve your appearance. A healthy mouth is critical to your overall health as well as your oral health.
Even missing a few teeth can affect your ability to chew your food sufficiently for optimal nutrition uptake. Your teeth also support the soft tissues of your face. When you have missing teeth, your cheeks or lips can look saggy or collapsed, causing you to look older than your actual age. Restoring those teeth can give you a younger looking appearance.

Lack of proper nutrition can have a negative impact on all your body’s systems, including cognitive ability. The body requires certain nutrients in order to function at its best.
