Top 4 Reasons to Replace a Missing Tooth Carrollton, GA

While little kids get excited to lose their baby teeth and get a visit from the tooth fairy, adults don’t share the same feelings and experience when a permanent tooth goes missing. Adult teeth are designed to last a lifetime. However, poor oral hygiene, accidental trauma and other unfortunate circumstances can cause teeth to fall out sooner than we’d expect. Unlike primary teeth that fall out, permanent teeth need to be replaced.

Why Replace a Missing Tooth?

When a front tooth goes missing, it is easy to see the benefits in replacing that tooth. The appearance of your smile is at stake. However, the consequences of a missing tooth aren’t restricted to aesthetics. In fact, missing teeth can also impact your oral health and your quality of life. Here are some leading reasons why you should consider teeth replacement, even if you have just one missing tooth:

  1. Protect Your Smile Appearance
    Your smile is most attractive when all your teeth are present and accounted for.
  2. Avoid Shifting Teeth and Dental Health Issues
    When a tooth goes missing, the neighboring teeth will naturally migrate towards the empty gap over time. This can create crooked teeth that are more difficult to keep clean and healthy.
  3. Retain Optimal Speech and Chewing
    Your teeth serve a vital purpose towards the way you speak and eat. When permanent teeth are lost, you may suffer limitations in speech and chewing that negatively affect your quality of life.
  4. Prevent Premature Facial Aging
    Your jawbone needs your tooth roots to retain its density and form. Missing teeth reduce jaw bone stimulation, which can result in loss of bone and a shrunken or aged appearance in your lower face.

This was absolutely the best experience I have ever had with any dentist. Dr. Tejal is so attentive to the needs of her patients. She cares deeply about the quality of service provided and taking care of you individually. You don't feel like a number. You leave knowing that you received the best care and beautiful smile to go with it.

I have never had a bad experience going to see Dr. Kakade and her amazing, caring staff. They make it super easy to book an appointment, send you helpful reminders via text, and you are in and out in a short amount of time with hardly any wait time. The office is warm and inviting with nice decor and even dentist chairs that massage you! Best of all, the entire staff genuinely care about their patients and want to help them have the best experience possible. They remember you and get to know you. I actually look forward to going!

Dr. Tejal and her wonderful staff do everything humanly possible to make every patient feel welcomed, supported, and cared for with the utmost compassion and professionalism. It feels as though one has been adopted into a family of caretakers and that you are a part of the family. 5 Stars and thumbs up all the way! They are the best! I speak from personal experience.


My family has used Dr. Tejal since she started her practice in Carrollton. She is thorough, detailed, and comprehensive in her approach to dental care. She seems to invest in new technology and modern methods to make routine and extraordinary care as easy for the patient as possible. Candy has been my hygienist for over a decade and does a fantastic job restoring my teeth to tip-top shape. On the rare occasion when Candy was unavailable, the other members of Dr. Tejal's team have been excellent.

Calm and peaceful office.

Wonderful office staff, nice environment. Dr. Tejal and staff do a great job of making one feel comfortable and the dental work after local anesthesia want uncomfortable. Few people like going to the dentist, but my experience here has been excellent.
