There are many reasons for people losing teeth. A one-off accident may damage or dislodge a tooth so that they need to be removed. Additionally, Gum disease is a major cause of tooth loss, in many cases, more so than tooth decay itself. Wear and tear over the years can weaken teeth, so in general, older people experience a higher level of tooth loss.
It is very important to replace missing teeth to not only preserve the functionality of your mouth, but also to allow you to chew food easily. If you are missing most or all of your teeth, there is a chance your cheeks may begin to sag inwards and make you appear older than you are. Sagging or hollow cheeks cause a serious lack of confidence in your image or appearance, and missing a number of teeth can be damaging to your self esteem and lead you to feel ashamed about smiling and even talking.
Implants like All-on-4™ are increasingly preferred over removable dentures because they are a permanent solution to tooth loss. The titanium implants fuse with the jaw bone for enduring stability so there is no need to worry about your dentures slipping or having to replace them.
