Benefits of Replacing A Missing Teeth

It is rightly said that the “First Impression is the last impression” and this fits all the more aptly in today’s social media world where physical appearance do make a strong first impression and influence the initial perceptions of an individual. While beautiful attractive smile makes one look radiant and youthful, on the other hand, missing teeth makes the facial appearance look aged and can have a drastic effect on the self-confidence and esteem of an individual apart from the other harmful effects to your dental and oral health.

Dentists are of the view that the adults aged 20-64 years have three or more decayed or missing teeth.

Your teeth may fall out because of tooth decay, gum disease, injury or trauma. In certain cases, a dentist may also extract your teeth to relieve symptoms or prevent damage to the surrounding teeth. But once your tooth is removed or falls out, the empty socket is left behind.

At this point, you may be wondering what to do next. Though, some people simply allow the site to heal and to leave it as it is. However, it is not the right approach to follow. The right approach would be to visit your dentist for a missing tooth replacement
Reasons why you should go for missing tooth replacement?

  1. To prevent bone loss
  2. Once the tooth is removed from the mouth for any reason, your bones become vulnerable to faster deterioration and shrinks in height as well as width.This is known as resorption, and it can generally starts from six months after tooth loss. Over time, bone loss can also change the shape of your face.
    So to prevent bone loss, you should replace your missing teeth. In that case, your dentist may suggest you go for  Dental Implant to restore your bone loss.

  3. To prevent movement of opposing and neighbouring teeth
  4. Most people may not think much about it, but missing teeth can affect the surrounding teeth.
    When a gap is left by your missing tooth, the surrounding teeth have the tendency to shift in the empty space and the opposing tooth overgrows and becomes longer because there is no tooth to help keep everything in line. This abnormal movement of the teeth can have a serious effect on your chewing efficiency and can at times; aggravate the jaw joint related pains too. Therefore, it is essential to go for a missing tooth replacement.

  5. To reduce the risk of gum disease
  6. Missing teeth could be the reason behind the development of gum disease.
    When a tooth falls out, it can leave a wound in your gum tissues. Additionally, when your mouth is warm, the wet spot can be a breeding ground for different kinds of bacteria. It means when you lose a tooth, and you are at a much higher risk of developing infections in your mouth.
    One of such infections is a gum infection. Not only are these gum infections painful, but they can also lead to gum disease. When you develop gum diseases, your gum tissues start to recede, and it can lead to even more tooth loss.
    Additionally, gum disease is also linked to a number of other health conditions, including heart disease and diabetes. This means that a missing tooth can not only put your gum at risk but can also put your overall health at risk.

  7. To get stronger jawbone
  8. Missing teeth can affect your jawbone in more ways than you realize.
    When you break your arm, you will not be able to use it for a few months. Additionally, the muscles may start to shrink because they haven’t been used in a while. Your jawbone is exactly similar. If there are no teeth, they can shrink.
    Though, if you have only one or two missing teeth, you may not notice it. But if some or all of your teeth are missing, your jawbone can become weak.
    But how missing teeth can impact your jawbone? Your body can detect when you lose a tooth and will start to absorb the minerals in your jaws to lose elsewhere. As a result, the area of the jaw around the empty sockets can begin to deteriorate.
    A weak jawbone can be the cause of many problems, including a fractured jaw and tooth loss. It happens as the jawbone is no longer able to support the remaining teeth. Therefore, in such a scenario, it is ideal to go for a missing tooth replacement.

  9. To retain all the functions

The main function of your teeth is biting and grinding food as well as helping you to speak. However, to carry out all these functions, all your teeth should be present.
When one or more of your teeth are missing, it affects your ability to bite or chew your food. Moreover, the gaps left by the missing teeth change the way air flows during speech. Thus, causing speech difficulties for so many people.
Hence, replacing missing teeth ensures that you will still be able to carry out all the essential functions of your teeth.
Now you have enough reasons to go to your dentist for your Missing Teeth Replacement .He will check you thoroughly and will suggest the treatment plan accordingly.
