Missing teeth can make facial structures change, causing unnecessary pain and aging. Dr. Simon Pong’s dental office in Oakville offers a full range of dental implant surgery options and procedures that are tailored to address specific patient problems and reduce the consequences of having missing teeth.
Consequences Of Missing Teeth
- Shifting Teeth – Remaining teeth in the jaw begin to shift into the open space left by the missing teeth. This could result in crooked or misaligned teeth.
- Exposed Gums – Missing teeth will result in an exposed gum area that is susceptible to pain from harder foods during chewing.
- Bone Loss – Missing teeth can result in the degradation of the jaw bone, causing the facial structure to change over time.
- Weakening of Oral Structure – Missing teeth can cause an overall weakness of the structure of the mouth, causing additional tooth loss or injury that could worsen over time.
