Teeth & Your Health
Missing teeth affect you in a variety of ways. It is bad for your oral health. Tooth loss can lead to bone loss in your jaw. This can lead to more lost teeth and more bone loss in an unfortunate cycle.
The effects of lost teeth go beyond your mouth, however.
From a psychological perspective, you can start to feel self-conscious about your smile. This changes how you approach face-to-face interactions. It could even cause you to cancel appointments or postpone opportunities, such as applying for a job.
From an overall health point of view, lost teeth change what you are able to eat. You may have to avoid crunchy foods, such as carrots and apples, or foods that require extensive chewing. This can cause you to avoid them or chew them insufficiently, which reduces the nutritional benefits you receive.
These are just a few of the reasons why it’s important to replace your missing teeth. With modern dental materials, you can have an attractive smile and bite and chew without pain or problems.
