Are you missing one or more teeth? Here are the dangerous dental effects of missing teeth and why you should never ignore tooth loss.


Your teeth play a significant role in your oral and overall health, and the loss of them, whether it’s due to injury, age, or gum disease, can lead to some undesirable consequences, such as speech problems and the weakening of other teeth.

To avoid tooth loss, you should:

  • Practice adequate oral hygiene (eg. brush your teeth twice daily and floss at least once)
  • Visit your biocompatible dentist at least once every six months for a teeth cleaning
  • Follow a healthy and nutritious diet
  • Stop the consumption of tobacco (by chewing or smoking)

3 Dangerous Consequences of Ignoring Tooth Loss

Tooth loss is often caused by injury, decay, or age, and although it can be corrected with solutions such as dental implants, dentures, and bridges, a large percentage of patients opt to forego treatment and simply live with the loss.

However, ignoring missing teeth can be extremely detrimental to both your oral and overall health and failing to replace the tooth can leave you at risk of developing additional, more costly problems that could interfere with your quality of life.

Some of the consequences of ignoring tooth loss include:

1. You’ll Suffer From Bone Loss

Your teeth work to support and stimulate your jaw bone, just as regular exercise supports healthy muscles. If you are missing a tooth, the bone that once supported it will no longer be stimulated and can become atrophied.

What is the solution? Your biocompatible dentist may suggest that you undergo dental implant treatment. Implants fuse with the bone to provide maximum strength and support to prevent bone loss.

 

2. Your Other Teeth Will Begin Shifting

Your teeth can shift or move over time for a number of reasons including age, gum recession, or tooth decay. However, the problem of shifting teeth is accelerated significantly if you have one or more missing teeth.

Why? The gap(s) left by missing teeth create big spaces into which adjacent teeth can shift. This, in turn, creates space for other teeth to shift, and eventually, your entire bite will be impacted.

An improper bite can lead to a host of problems, including:

  • Headaches
  • Muscle pain
  • Wear and tear of your teeth
  • Further tooth loss
  • TMJD

If you are suffering from tooth loss, it’s important to visit your biocompatible dentist today. They will assess your oral and overall health and help you choose the best tooth replacement option for your lifestyle and specific needs.

3. You Won’t Be Able to Eat The Foods You Love

Even just one damaged or missing tooth can significantly impede your ability to bite and chew - and this can lead to a negative effect on both your oral and overall health. This is because many of the foods we need for a healthy and balanced diet (such as vegetables or nuts) are all difficult to chew, even if you have all your original teeth.

In addition to trouble eating certain foods, tooth loss can also lead to:

  • A decreased appetite
  • Stress and pain when eating
  • Over-taxation of the healthy side of your mouth, harming your gums
  • A change in the structure of your teeth

 

How Dental Implants Can Keep You Healthy and Happy

Unlike the other treatments for missing teeth, dental implants look, feel, and function like your natural teeth. They are a permanent and stable fixture which restores your ability to eat normal food and make eating enjoyable again.
