Missing teeth causes bone loss. Significant bone loss can shrink the contours of the jawbone, causing wrinkled lips and a sunken mouth and chin.
Attractive, healthy teeth play an important role in our general health and well-being. You look and feel confident, free to laugh with friends and family – anytime and anywhere. There are many reasons why people lose their teeth, which can have a strong impact on your quality of life.
Missing teeth can cause bone loss and the jawbone to shrink. This is because the bone is no longer stimulated when you chew food – something that happens routinely when you use your natural teeth. This causes physical changes to your face. Your jaw line shrinks, causing dentures to lose their fit. They often slip, cause pain, or even become embarrassing. That is why attractive, healthy teeth are important for health and overall well-being.
