Why are Lost Teeth a Problem?
We Need Healthy Teeth to Eat Healthy Food!
Having fewer teeth makes biting and chewing difficult. People who are missing teeth will begin to shift chewing to the remaining stronger teeth and find it harder to eat chewier, hard foods. Many of the people who come to us asking for dental implants are looking for a better solution because they are tired of having to chew carefully all the time or are tired of a soft foods.
Missing Teeth means Missing Jaw Bone
Bone loss is the dark, hidden secret of tooth loss. Most people are happy to get a broken or infected tooth removed and assume that they’ve solved their problem. Removing a bad tooth does eliminate infection, but it doesn’t restore function. We usually think of the visible functions of our teeth like chewing and smiling; however, one of their most critical functions is maintaining bone levels in our jaws. When we lose teeth, we also lose bone. This bone loss will progress continually unless we replace the missing tooth root with an implant.
