Millions of people have missing teeth. Over time, the effects of tooth loss can significantly impact your lifestyle. There are a few negative consequences of missing some, or all, of your teeth. First, missing teeth will affect the appearance of your face. This is more obvious with the greater number of teeth missing. Your smile may show the spaces from missing teeth, and if you are missing many teeth, the skin around your mouth won’t be supported properly and will begin to sag. This commonly makes a person appear older than they are. Additionally, missing teeth will make it more difficult to chew your food with confidence and limit the overall chewing function. Finally, missing even one tooth could have emotional consequences; many people often feel less confident about their smile which may impact their lifestyle. Watch the video to review some common consequences of missing teeth.
