Why Even Bother Replacing Your Missing Teeth?


Posted on 4/27/2016 by Dr. Frank Sallustio
A man suffering from missing teeth.Despite your best efforts to keep your teeth clean, you have sadly lost a tooth. However, it is a tooth in the back of your mouth and no one can actually see that it is gone, so what is the big deal? Why would you even bother to replace it?

If this is your way of thinking, you're not alone, as those sentiments are shared by a variety of dental patients. Unfortunately, a lot of problems can result from losing teeth and failing to replace them. These are a few of the top reasons you'll want to talk to your dentist about restorative options:

•  Improved appearance. Even if the tooth is in the back of your mouth, missing teeth can change the way that your smile looks, and if you suffer from bone loss as a result, your facial shape could change.
•  Easier ability to chew and eat. While you might not be able to see a missing back tooth, if one is gone, it can make it difficult to chew your food. Studies have shown that when people aren't able to chew their food comfortably or efficiently, they tend to make unhealthy food choices.
•  Keep your teeth from shifting. When one tooth is missing, the rest of the teeth have a tendency to shift into that empty space. This could lead to some major changes with the alignment of your teeth as well as your bite.
•  Improved TMJ pain and headaches. If there are problems with your bite, you could suffer from jaw pain. Facial pain and headaches are also common, all as a result of improper tooth support.

Now that you know more about the importance of replacing your missing teeth, what are you waiting for? Contact our office today to find out what can be done about your tooth loss.
