Just one missing tooth can affect the health and function of your natural smile. Missing teeth can affect the condition of the remaining teeth, gum tissue, and surrounding bone structure. Promptly addressing tooth loss can help prevent complex dental concerns that are typically caused by missing teeth.

Why Replace Missing Teeth
Aside from the effects missing teeth can have on your self-confidence, they can also impact the integrity of your oral health. When a tooth is lost, the remaining teeth shift to fill the empty space; this can lead to crooked or misaligned teeth and may even affect your bite. Missing teeth may also influence your ability to chew and enjoy your favorite foods. As a result of inadequate chewing, patients may also suffer from poor nutrition if they don’t find the appropriate tooth replacement solution.
In addition to other complication of missing teeth, bone loss is one of the most harmful complications of tooth loss. When bone density diminishes in the jaw bone, the jaw bone can no longer support the remaining teeth. Patients may experience further tooth loss, facial sagging, and difficulty speaking or chewing.
