Why Do I Need to Replace My Teeth?
Every tooth serves an important role in your oral health and functions. The more teeth you lose, the more both declines. Over time, any remaining teeth lose support, causing them to drift out of position. Not only does this increase your risk of cavities and gum disease but also additional tooth loss.
You will also have difficulty eating certain foods, which can lead to nutritional deficiencies from an incomplete diet. It is common to have slurred speech as it becomes harder to pronounce certain sounds. You may also notice changes to your appearance because your facial structures lose support. This can cause premature wrinkling and sagging of your skin.
