Why Fix Missing Teeth?

When you lose a tooth, it can lead to many issues with your oral health. Our first thoughts might go to the looks of our smiles. However, the implications for your dental health and overall well-being are far-reaching. As a result, you need to seek restorative options as soon as possible. 

Nutrition: Missing can significantly impact your ability to chew food properly. This can lead to dietary restrictions because patients may avoid certain foods due to difficulty in chewing. Unfortunately, this can potentially result in poor nutrition. 

Alignment: With missing teeth, the alignment of your surrounding teeth can shift. When a tooth is lost, neighboring teeth may shift into the empty space, causing misalignment. This can lead to bite issues, temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders, and even more tooth loss over time. The loss of one tooth can set off a chain reaction of dental problems if left untreated. 

Emotional Wellness: Aesthetically, missing teeth can profoundly impact a person’s self-confidence and social interactions. People may feel self-conscious about their smiles. As a result, it can lead to a reluctance to laugh, speak, or smile openly. This can affect their relationships, as well as their overall mental well-being. 

Jawbone: Beyond the immediate concerns, untreated, missing teeth can have long-term consequences on your oral health. The jawbone requires stimulation from the teeth to maintain its density and strength. When a tooth is lost, the underlying jawbone in that area can begin to deteriorate. This can lead to further tooth loss and changes in facial structure, such as a sunken appearance around the mouth.
