The Long-Term Challenges of Missing Teeth

Tooth loss is a much more common problem than you might think The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention conducted a survey that showed almost 40 million Americans are missing all their teeth in one or both jaws.

Reduced Self-Confidence

Your smile is one of the first things others notice about you, and it is unfortunate, but many people will judge you by your appearance. Tooth loss can cause you to feel less confident about yourself and more likely to avoid social situations.

Emotional Consequences

There is also an emotional component to tooth loss. If you have lost a tooth, you may feel sadness or shame about the condition of your oral health. Some patients feel like they have lost part of themselves and also report feeling old and having a sense of resignation.

Nutritional Concerns

Aside from the effect that it has on your appearance, tooth loss also makes it difficult to eat all the healthy foods you need, leading to poor nutrition that is linked to systemic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

Change in Facial Structure

Shortly after a tooth is lost, the lack of a root leads to deterioration of the jawbone. This causes the bone in your jaw to lose height and makes you look older than your years.
