A missing tooth is more than just an aesthetic issue; it can actually have significant effects on your oral health! While you might be tempted to put off replacing your tooth, here’s why it’s important to visit your dentist quickly:
All of your teeth have a specific function and rely on each other to form a healthy, working dental structure. When one is missing, the rest of your teeth begin to shift, causing your bite to become misaligned and your jawbone to become diminished.
These issues can alter your facial structure (i.e. sagging face + premature aging) and can affect your quality of life, as speaking and chewing can become more difficult than before. Maintaining proper oral hygiene also becomes trickier, making your mouth more prone to infection, decay, etc.
