The Impact of Tooth Loss

by | Oct 27, 2020

Dr. Loh Ee Tyug: Besides getting your wisdom teeth removed as directed by your doctor, what could happen if you ignore losing one or more of your other 28 teeth?

While the most obvious effect of missing teeth could be aesthetic, untimely loss of teeth could have a negative effect not only your oral health but also on your overall health.

However, it’s not just about those unsightly gaps. The loss of one tooth may lead to more aggravated issues such as further tooth loss, bite problems, gum disease and tooth decay. Even eventual bone deterioration, and in the rare instance, the potential collapse of facial structure if many teeth are lost. This could make one appear years older than they actually are and cause nutritional and other health troubles.

Regular dental checks can help prevent tooth loss through early detection.
