Tooth loss can be one of the most traumatic experiences for patients. It can affect your confidence to smile, how you eat and also cause damage to the remaining teeth. If you lose more teeth, you will be forced to chew in other areas and possibly in an unusual way. This often leads to fractures in other teeth, excessive tooth wear and even possible pain from the jaw joints.
