Possible changes caused by the loss of teeth
- Esthetic changes caused by the change to facial contours due to the lack of support.
- Occupation of the space left by the missing tooth by the adjacent and opposing teeth, which shift to fill the empty space.
- If the missing tooth is from the front of the mouth, this affects the smile and, potentially, self-confidence.
- Difficulties speaking and chewing and, as a result, possible digestiona and health problems, generally due to incorrect chewing.
