When a tooth is lost the jawbone beneath it begins to shrink and become brittle. This shrinkage is due to a lack of stimulation from the missing tooth – in a similar way to how muscle withers through lack of use.
Teeth adjacent to the space created by the lost tooth will then tilt and drift leading to unevenness in your bite and the overall appearance of your smile. Over time this shrinkage can lead to a huge change in facial appearance and the face can collapse through this lack of support.
These changes can not only affect your day-to-day ability to chew properly and therefore your diet and nutrition, but may leave people feeling unhappy and self-conscious about their mouth and smile.
