When asked what makes a smile unattractive, people’s number one response is “missing teeth.” Your missing teeth are on display whenever you talk or smile, making you uncomfortable and, worse, your missing teeth can cause serious health problems. Missing teeth create gaps that can be hard to clean, leading to gum disease, which can threaten adjacent teeth. The space created by a missing tooth can cause other teeth to drift and grow crooked. A missing tooth can also contribute to jaw bone decay and gum collapse.
To remedy all these consequences of missing teeth, dental implants can be recommended.
