Losing even a single tooth can trigger a domino effect that can eventually result in missing teeth. This happens because teeth rely on one another for support and stability. Contact Dr. Randolph Moore for dental implants in Buford, GA as soon as possible, as failing to address missing teeth can cause this support system to collapse and affect your health in several ways.

Learn About Dental Implant Surgery Choose Implants Over Dentures

Difficulty Eating

One lost tooth may not have a noticeable effect on your chewing abilities, but multiple missing teeth will. In addition to abstaining from your favorite foods, you may also need to limit your diet to softer foods that have been heavily processed. This often results in poor nutrition which contributes to illnesses such as constipation, weight loss, indigestion, and rheumatism.

Bone Loss

Your teeth play an important role in preserving your jaw bone. In areas of the mouth that are missing teeth, the jaw will not receive the stimulation it needs to stabilize bone mass and will gradually start to deteriorate. Since a large amount of bone loss takes place within the first year following the loss of a tooth, it is important to replace missing teeth as soon as possible. Dental implants can replace missing teeth and act just like natural teeth by stimulating the jaw bone to help prevent deterioration.

Facial Collapse

In addition to preserving bone mass, your teeth also serve to hold your lips and cheeks in place. Over time, patients with missing teeth often see these areas sink inward. When this happens, a downward crease will appear at the corners of your mouth and cause your appearance to age greatly. Without dental implants, many patients experience misalignment which can cause the vertical height of the face to collapse. This means that the chin will slowly shift upwards and alter your physical appearance.

It is important to replace missing teeth not only for your appearance but for your overall health and function, as well. Contact Dr. Moore for more information about dental implants in Buford, GA.
