A missing tooth can affect your quality of life in a number of ways. The treatment recommendations will depend upon how many teeth are missing and the general health of your mouth
Causes of missing teeth
Missing teeth may cause a variety of problems:
- Your bite may change which can impact on how you enjoy food
- A change in your bite may cause stress and damage to other teeth
- Your speech may become more difficult to understand
- The shape of your face may change
Teeth have many functions apart from chewing and biting. It is important that a missing tooth is replaced without delay.
