The Effect of Missing Teeth
Missing teeth, even just one, can negatively impact your life and quality of living drastically. Hiding your smile, adjusting your eating habits, and experiencing declining oral health and function—all of these can be a result of tooth loss. Even just a single missing tooth can lead to a downward spiral; your jawbone will deteriorate around the empty socket and surrounding teeth begin to shift, changing your bite and losing security within the jaw. Most patients who have missing teeth experience psychological effects as they feel embarrassed to smile or interact with others. If you feel like your missing teeth are causing you concern in your everyday life, its time to make a change. Drs. Michael Klein and Allon Waltuch offer modern solutions in our New York area office.
