Tooth Loss And Premature Aging

Did you know? Having a full set of teeth isn't only essential for a healthy smile - it's also critical to keep you looking young! Tooth loss can age you without immediate treatment. That's because the bone tissue around the missing tooth no longer gets stimulated by chewing, causing the bone, skin, and jaw to deteriorate over time. Even one or two missing teeth can lead to noticeable facial sagging.

The best thing you can do to prevent premature aging due to tooth loss is to see your dentist as soon as possible after you lose a tooth. Depending on the severity of your tooth loss they may recommend a fully customizable dental bridge treatment for one or more missing teeth.
