Are Missing Teeth Really a Big Deal?Other problems can occur with just one tooth absent. You need a full set of teeth to obtain the most nutrients from the food you chew. As chewing becomes difficult with fewer teeth, softer foods may be preferred, resulting in unwanted weight gain. As time goes on, your face will take on a sunken appearance without the support of full dental arches and the resultant bone loss. Your remaining teeth may start to shift or move, causing additional issues.
With today's technology, we can replace one or many missing teeth. Dental implants are natural looking and provide total functionality for eating and speaking. They look just like the real deal, and even you will forget they're not your own!
