Tooth and Bone Loss Affect Your Appearance
The impact of missing teeth on your smile is obvious, but did you know that missing teeth leads to the deterioration of your jaw bone? Bone deterioration can alter the shape of your face and lead to further missing teeth. Dental implants replace the roots as well as the visible portions, or crowns, of your teeth. This allows implants to stimulate the jaw just like your natural teeth do, which keeps the bone from deteriorating.
Health and Functionality
Because missing teeth leave open spaces in your mouth, your teeth will shift over time, changing your bite for the worse. Teeth rely upon one another to remain in position. If a tooth is lost, it is the naturally tendency of the surrounding teeth to drift into that open space. This shifting of position negatively impacts your oral health in a number of ways. Replacing missing teeth as soon as possible is extremely important in order to prevent these complications.
