Tooth loss is not the most pleasant experience, and leaving it unattended can only make matters worse. The severity of its effects usually depends on individual cases; however, the more lost teeth there are, the more aggressive the consequences are. Furthermore, the longer missing teeth remain unreplaced, the more apparent deterioration becomes, which may require a complex treatment plan or restoration.

To prevent this from happening, we at Blooming Family Dental highly encourage patients to consider tooth replacement options in a timely fashion. If not followed, here are the possible consequences they may experience:

Compromised speech

When speaking, the front teeth are used to pronouncing certain syllables and make the sounds for “F,” “V,” “S.” Therefore, if these structures are lost, patients can expect that their speech will be affected negatively.

Movement of adjacent teeth

Tooth loss can lead to a number of biological responses, especially if restorations are not availed sooner. The surrounding teeth may end up in the spaces left by missing structures, causing them to over-erupt, tilt, and rotate into the gaps. As the tooth moves, they leave spaces, which will cause their neighboring teeth to move as well. As a result, the patient is more likely to develop an unsightly smile.

Reduced chewing ability

Tooth loss means that the remaining teeth need to pick up the pressure applied when chewing. And the more teeth are lost, the lesser is their ability to chew their food effectively. The remaining teeth wear down much faster, causing the structures to become more sensitive and even develop fractures. If you don’t consider installing a dental restoration, you are more likely to undergo complicated and expensive treatments in the long run.

Psychological consequences

Missing teeth can cause more than just cosmetic issues, especially if they are located in areas that are most visible when smiling. Unfortunately, tooth loss can even cause psychological effects like anxiety and depression. These problems can occur due to the physical loss of teeth and its impact on their lifestyle.

As a solution for tooth loss, we at Blooming Family Dental present our patients with traditional dentures and a denture stabilization procedure for a more reliable dental prosthesis.
