Why is it important to replace missing teeth?
Missing teeth can have a significant effect on your personal appearance. When a tooth is lost and a space is created pressure from normal function and your teeth touching together can cause the remaining teeth to shift. This shift can cause otherwise healthy straight teeth to tilt. These tilted teeth can become unstable which makes them more likely to be lost in the future. Missing teeth will make it more difficult to eat and place more stress on the remaining teeth. The teeth also support facial tissue such as your lips and cheeks. When missing teeth are not replaced and gaps are left open, the tissue can “cave in” adding years to the person’s appearance.
