Problems That Result from Missing TeethTeeth can be lost from decay or injury as well as periodontal disease. It is important to know that missing even one tooth can cause other problems. Chewing with a full set of teeth ensures the most nutrients from your food. If you have many missing teeth, you may alter your diet and eat less healthy, softer foods to make chewing easier. Over time, your face will take on a sunken look, making you look older than your age. Speech can be affected as well, causing embarrassing moments.
We recommend dental implants to replace one or many missing teeth. They are permanent and will recapture a full smile and the ability to chew every type of food. They look so natural, no one, not even a dentist will be able to tell they are not your own teeth.
