What are the main causes of missing teeth?

Apart from the normal process of baby tooth loss the various other causes of missing teeth are:

Dental decay – if you leave the cavity for too long it will lead to tooth loss.

Gum disease – when there is too much bacteria around the gums, this will lead to the loss of bone around the tooth known as gum disease.

Congenitally missing teeth – sometimes teeth do not form in the first place due to genetics or in connection with medical problems.

Trauma – the front teeth are particularly at risk of trauma which can sometimes lead to the loss of teeth.

What happens when you don’t fix your missing teeth?

The various consequences of not replacing missing teeth can include the following:

  • The jaws may not bite together properly, thus affecting the function of chewing,
  • Difficulty in talking,
  • Pain in the facial muscles due to an improper bite,
  • Drifting or tilting of teeth into the space where the missing tooth used to be. This will lead to poor hygiene in this area,
  • Supra-eruption of teeth, which means that the opposing tooth drifts into the space because nothing is stopping it from doing so,
  • Food trapping and plaque accumulation in the gaps can lead to more decay or gum disease
  • The cosmetic loss of a front tooth may affect your confidence; however, a lot of people’s confidence is affected with posterior tooth loss,
  • It’s also worth remembering that some teeth will not need to be always be replaced such as wisdom teeth or second molars.
