About Consequences of Missing Teeth

Missing teeth cause more than low self-esteem, and in fact, can have long-term consequences. Some of the possible consequences of missing teeth include: 

  • Acceleration, shifting, or damage to other teeth, impacting your bite
  • Deterioration of your jaw, causing deformity, difficulty chewing, and / or loss of bone density
  • Sagging skin due to missing teeth, causing premature aging to the face

Dental implants alone or combined with permanent / fixed dentures are the most effective and longest-lasting way to prevent these issues. If you have one or more missing teeth, talk to your dentist about your options for treatment to avoid the often unknown consequences of missing teeth.
