Missing Teeth

Missing teeth are more than just a cosmetic issue; they can lead to various oral health problems, including misalignment of the remaining teeth, difficulty in chewing, and loss of jawbone density. At Sunshine Boulevard Dental, we understand the importance of addressing this common problem effectively to restore functionality and confidence in your smile.

What Missing Teeth Causes?

  • Altered bite and jaw alignment: Missing one or more teeth can lead to shifting of the remaining teeth, altering the way your jaw closes. This misalignment can cause issues with your bite, leading to difficulty chewing, jaw pain, and even temporomandibular joint disorders (TMJ).
  • Increased risk of tooth decay and gum disease: Gaps from missing teeth can trap food particles and bacteria, increasing the risk of tooth decay and gum disease in the surrounding teeth.
  • Bone loss: Teeth stimulate the jawbone through chewing, maintaining its density. When teeth are missing, the lack of stimulation can lead to bone loss in the jaw, affecting facial structure and the integrity of adjacent teeth.
  • Speech difficulties: Teeth play a crucial role in speech. Missing teeth can affect your ability to pronounce certain words clearly, impacting your communication.
  • Nutritional issues: Missing teeth can make it difficult to chew certain foods, potentially leading to nutritional deficiencies if you start avoiding those foods.
  • Cosmetic impact: Missing teeth can cause visible gaps in your smile, affecting your appearance and potentially leading to self-consciousness or reduced self-esteem.
  • Ageing appearance: Bone loss and changes in facial structure due to missing teeth can lead to a sunken appearance around the mouth, making individuals look older than they are.
