Most people don’t picture themselves losing their adult teeth in their lifetime. But, more often than not, patients lose at least one tooth over the course of their life. The worst thing you can do for your smile is ignoring it’s lost component. Missing teeth can cause lots of problems for your health and wreak havoc on your smile! Luckily, Torbram Dental has a great restorative option for patients that wish to replace the missing pieces to their smile: dental implants in Brampton.
Missing Teeth Cause Negative Effects on Your Life
You probably know a family member or “friend of a friend” that has lost one of their permanent teeth. Tooth loss isn’t uncommon and you don’t just have to have bad hygiene habits to lose them. No matter the reason, it’s important to replace your teeth for these reasons.
Your face will age prematurely.
Your youthful appearance and sturdy smile are supported by a healthy jawbone. Your jawbone stays healthy from tooth roots that stimulate blood flow. If you lose a tooth, this area of your jaw along with surrounding areas start to deteriorate and cause your facial appearance to sag.
The remaining teeth in your smile will shift.
Your smile can shift and become crooked or overlapping, making it more difficult to clean. This could lead to tooth decay, cavities, or even dental diseases. Finally, your jaws could be affected. You will be at higher risk for developing a joint disorder (TMJ disorder) from these occlusion issues.
You can’t enjoy eating the foods your body needs.
Patients that have lost teeth tend to eat softer foods. Typically, these foods end up being highly processed and unhealthy for the rest of your body. Basically, you’re more at risk for food-induced health diseases because these foods are lower in nutritional value.
Your self-confidence will plummet.
Sometimes, some patients have trouble communicating clearly or develop speech issues—especially if they are missing a front tooth. This can negatively affect how you feel about yourself and make people less likely to pursue their goals and dreams.
