Why You Should Replace Missing Teeth

June 11, 2019 - toothbar - 0 comments Missing Teeth

As we get older, it’s natural for people to start losing their teeth. In fact, 25% of people over 65-year-old are missing all of their teeth. If you’re on the way, you might just allow it to happen. However, you can do something about it. Here are the reasons why you should replace your teeth.

(1) Eat everything you want

If you’re missing teeth, things like corn on the cob can be very difficult to enjoy. Don’t be left out at the barbecue! When you replace your missing teeth, you will be able to eat all of the foods that you previously couldn’t enjoy. If you can’t eat the things you want, you might not get the nutrients that you need.

(2) Prevent misshapen teeth

A missing tooth can cause the other teeth around it to bite and chew at a different angle to make up for the missing tooth. When this happens, it can cause those teeth to move and cause teeth to become crooked. Now, you have another dental problem to deal with that may require surgery or braces.

(3) Plaque build up

When there are gaps in your smile, it can make your teeth more difficult to clean. Without properly cleaning your teeth, you can have plaque build-up in hidden areas. This plaque can lead to gum disease. Gum disease can lead to even more gaps in your smile.

(4) Greater Self-Esteem

Having missing teeth can prevent you from smiling to avoid people from seeing. It can be embarrassing. Furthermore, missing teeth can cause your face to become sunken, aging you before your time. This happens when the bones in the mouth don’t get the activity they need to stay strong.

These problems can lead to insecurity problems and possible mental health issues. When you get dental implants from Austin restorative dentistry, it will make you feel more attractive. You will be smiling more!

There are a number of ways to fix missing teeth. You can get a bridge, an implant, or dentures. Each option has its advantages and disadvantages. Talk to your dentist to learn what option is the best for you and your teeth.
