Why is it important to replace missing teeth?
Just one missing tooth could cause your oral health to deteriorate. Without the support of the missing tooth and root system, your smile is susceptible to bacterial infection, bone loss, and decay. A missing tooth can cause you to hide your smile and impact your self-confidence. Both a cosmetic and functional dental health concern, missing teeth should be replaced soon after a loss.
Missing teeth increase the risk of:
- Tooth decay
- Additional tooth loss
- Gum recession
- Gum disease
- Shifting or crooked teeth
- TMJ or bite disorders
- Jawbone loss
- Facial sagging
Missing teeth can impact the way you interact with your friends and associates and makes it difficult to eat a varied, healthy diet. Patients with missing teeth are more likely to hide their smiles and suffer from a loss of self-confidence.
