Consequences of Dental Absence.

Tooth loss impacts facial health, functionality and esthetics. In this article by Previa Implant Center, experts in implant dentistry in Tijuana, we examine its short and long-term implications, along with the preventive measures and solutions available.

Oral Health Problems Due to Missing Teeth:

Missing teeth can increase the risk of infections and tooth decay, as empty spaces can accumulate food debris and facilitate bacterial growth. This can lead to the development of gum disease, further increasing dental complications.

Mouth Function Problems:

Tooth loss makes it difficult to chew solid foods, which impacts digestion from a restricted diet. In addition, dental misalignment can cause wear and stress on the jaw by altering the fit of the upper and lower teeth when biting.

Aesthetic and Facial Consequences:

Tooth loss can change facial structure, causing loss of support for facial tissues and contributing to premature wrinkling and early facial aging.

Tooth Loss Prevention:

Regular dental hygiene and preventive care are essential to avoid tooth loss. Visits to the dentist allow problems to be detected and treated early, preventing tooth loss. Brushing twice a day and flossing daily helps prevent cavities and gum disease.
