Why It's Important To Replace Missing Teeth


BiteLock knows that missing teeth can be a stressful experience. Whether it is cosmetically unappealing or tucked away where no one can see, knowing that it is there can make you worry about a great many things. What can you eat? What should you avoid? What will happen to your other teeth? These are all very good questions, and in the end, it is incredibly important that you get broken, and missing teeth are taken care of immediately. Missing teeth can become a roadblock that just grows and grows the longer it is ignored. For more information on why to get your missing tooth taken care of, or when/how to do so, give us a call here at BiteLock today, and we can help you every step of the way.

Your Teeth Can Shift


One of the things that people don't realize right away after losing a tooth is that the teeth surrounding that gap can move. Your teeth will try to compensate for the loss and move in to fill in the space. However, this can lead to more problems. Your teeth will not shift cooperatively. They will become crowded or angle at a very problematic degree. If you find a tooth is beginning to tip into that space, that could result in uneven bite force, a bad bite angle, resulting in cracks or chips, or that other tooth to become dislodged over time and cause you a great deal of pain and difficulty. Replacing the missing tooth will remedy that before it begins.

Food, Drink, and Speech will all Come More Naturally


With a broken or missing tooth, it becomes more difficult to eat, drink, and speak over time. Eating and drinking can cause a great deal of discomfort if the gum area in the gap is damaged or irritated by temperature or harshness of the food. Speech can also be impaired, possibly resulting in a lisp or something of that nature as you are forced to articulate differently than you would ordinarily. When you get that tooth replaced, it allows things to flow naturally once more. This means that your tongue will not stumble when you try to speak, and your gums will not be as damaged when trying to eat or drink.

Oral Hygiene


It is easy for bacteria to collect in the pits where teeth used to be. It is also easy to neglect those areas when brushing your teeth because you tend to be focused on, well, your teeth. Getting that tooth replaced allows your oral hygiene routine to be more effective, and to keep halitosis and gum disease at bay.
