Not only can missing teeth affect the way the rest of your teeth bite together, but they can sometimes increase the risk of tooth decay and gum disease, as the remaining teeth may tilt and drift into the gaps and food/plaque can get trapped in the spaces.
Your speech and appearance can be affected if lots of teeth are missing so considering a replacement maybe beneficial.
If you have missing teeth, instead of doing nothing and leaving the spaces empty, you may want to replace them. There are a few treatment available including:
- Dental implants
