A gap in between your teeth can detract from an otherwise attractive smile, but can also cause problems for your remaining natural teeth. The teeth adjacent to the space will gradually begin to drift out of position, which can mean you begin to develop unwanted and unsightly spaces in between other teeth.
Tooth loss also affects your opposing teeth, as they rely on biting and chewing to help keep them in position. If they cannot bite against another tooth they will gradually drift toward the empty space (over eruption). This can affect your bite, and may be awkward and costly to put right.
Tooth loss can also affect your facial profile. Your teeth help support your cheeks and lips, and maintain the correct dimensions between the upper and lower jaws. If you have lost multiple teeth you might find your facial features appear to have collapsed inwards, which can be prematurely aging.
Dental Implants Help Prevent Bone Loss
When you lose teeth you also begin to lose some of the bone in your jaw. Your jaw bone relies on the stimulation provided by biting and chewing to keep it strong and healthy and to ensure old bone cells are continuously renewed. This is because the forces created during these actions are transmitted through the crown of the tooth, down into the roots, and out into the surrounding bone.
After tooth extraction, the bone loses this stimulation, and without it the bone gradually reabsorbs, as it is no longer prompted to renew old bone cells when they die off. The subsequent tooth bone loss can affect the stability of your remaining teeth, and will mean your jawbone will lose some of its height, affecting the overall dimensions of your face.
