Dental prosthetics – why is replacing a missing tooth so important?
Removal of a single tooth leaves behind what appears to be just a small space. “Appears to be” because failure to fill in the empty space at the right time can lead to very negative changes, including:
- the tendency of neighboring teeth to lean towards or even move into the free space, leaving unattractive gaps between the remaining teeth
- jaw bone and mandible, which can suffer irreversible loss in the area of the missing tooth, negatively influencing the way that a prosthesis adheres to the base, leading to discomfort in use
- opposing teeth, which gradually slide into the dental alveola (sometimes even involving harmful bone growth), becoming “longer”, which can sometimes lead to their loss
- gums, which recede leaving the teeth more vulnerable to damage during eating as a result of missing teeth
- front teeth, which take over the functions of lost side teeth, and as a result are overloaded and ground down, leading to an unattractive visual effect
- temporal-mandibular joint, which may react to negative changes by hurting, clicking, or jumping out of place
- effectiveness of chewing, which is reduced as a result of incorrect movement of the mandible caused by the movements of the teeth
- speech, especially when front teeth are lost
- mental state, because we often stop smiling and avoid showing characteristic “black holes” remaining when teeth are lost
- esthetics, as missing teeth can make the face appear even dozens of years older
