In some ways, you can’t put a price on the ability to smile, eat, and speak freely without feeling self-conscious about how you chew, pronounce words or how you look. When teeth are missing, you may feel embarrassed about how those spaces appear to others.
Functionally, you may struggle to chew food properly. Nutrition can suffer. You may not find enjoyment in eating foods you once loved. These complications of tooth loss don’t go away on their own. In fact, the longer you go without teeth the worse conditions such as bone loss become.
Treatment now, rather than later
When the underlying bone doesn’t get the stimulation it needs from eating or other day-to-day functions, this support structure wears down. Think of how your muscles appear smaller when you are injured or during a period of sickness. Just as muscles may atrophy from lack of use, the bone can do the same.
This bone loss is responsible for a cascade of unwanted side effects, which may include a change in the shape and appearance of your face. If you think your face looks more sunken and drawn, there may be more than the march of time to blame. You simply don’t have the strong bone to support the tissues of your face. This can make you look older than your years.
