If you are suffering from missing teeth then not only can it be aesthetically unappealing, but it can also affect your oral health if left untreated overtime. Dental Implants are the permanent solution for missing teeth, and they help with bone growth. Also, they function just like your natural teeth which makes them easy to adjust to and easier to maintain. Your missing teeth should not be left untreated.
Here are two ways missing teeth can harm your oral health:
1. Speech Issues
Missing teeth can affect the way you enunciate and the way you speak. This is because the structure and shape of your teeth plays a role in the way you formulate your words. Many people don’t realize that their teeth can affect their speech. If you are suffering from missing teeth and you have some speech issues, then this could be connected to your missing teeth. Often times your missing teeth can are already a source of embarrassment and if you add speech issues in this may cause you to have a decrease in your confidence. To improve your speech, it would be beneficial if you got dental implants.
2. Bone Loss
Bone loss is one of the main issues that can occur as a result of bone loss. Also, once you have suffered from too much bone loss it’s not possible for the bone to be regenerated. However, dental implants promote bone growth and you can also receive bone grafting if needed to help make the dental installation process possible. If you suffer from major bone loss this can overtime affect the shape of your jaw and will eventually cause you to have a misaligned jaw which will affect the shape of your face. If you are already suffering from a lack of confidence because of your missing teeth and then your facial structure begins to change due to changes in your jaw line this will majorly impact your confidence.
