Importance of missing teethDid you know that millions of Americans are missing teeth in one or both jaws? Hard to believe, right? Missing teeth or broken teeth can cause some problems for people of all ages. It’s important to understand that refusing to replace your teeth immediately can have some serious consequences such as:

Speech.

Believe it or not, missing tooth can affect the way you speak, depending on its location.

Bite changes.

Losing one or more teeth can heavily affect the way you eat as it adds pressure to other teeth which over time can gradually shift and move into space once held.

Gum disease.

Shifting teeth makes it easier for the plague to build up and go to places where it is harder to reach, which increases the risk of gum disease and can lead to additional tooth loss.

Appearance.

Missing tooth near the front of the mouth where visible when speaking can cause insecurity when talking.
