Many of us have teeth that are missing for one reason or another. We all lose our baby teeth, usually between the ages of six and twelve, but Dental Care Matters, says the most common causes of adult tooth loss include: tooth decay, gum disease, tooth trauma, and teeth that may not have grown in the first place, such as wisdom teeth. Not all teeth need replacing, but if not replaced, some missing teeth may cause problems with the jaws not being able to ‘bite’ together, which affects chewing and may cause jaw pain. In addition, a missing tooth can greatly affect the way you look; your cheeks could be drawn in to your face due to the lack of bone and tooth to support them, and/or you could have large gaps in your smile which will often affect confidence. Dentures have been a popular solution to replace missing teeth for a number of years, however , for some people they’re not the best option; they may not fit correctly which can cause slipping and discomfort, they aren’t fixed in place so on occasion have been known to come out when eating or talking, and they sometimes don’t look as natural as some people would like.
