The Consequences Of Tooth Loss

Throughout the course of life, teeth are lost for many reasons,including cavities, gum disease, cracked roots and accidents.When a tooth is lost the bone that previously supported that tooth starts to res-orb away. Missing teeth can compromise your eating habits, speech and appearance.

Tooth loss in the front of your mouth can result in a visible defect obviously, as the tooth will be missing. In addition, if it is restored (without using an implant) with time there can also be a defect in the bone which can be difficult to mask. Such losses can affect the appearance of your smile and self confidence. Missing teeth
at the back of your mouth lead to the collapse of your bite, affecting the appearance of your face, your ability to eat and the health of your remaining teeth. Complete tooth loss results in facial structure collapse as the jaws deteriorate over time.
