What happens when you lose a tooth? After losing a permanent tooth, you may develop a higher risk of misalignment, as well as tooth decay and gum disease. As tooth loss progresses, you can have trouble eating or speaking and may develop jaw joint problems, such as TMJ disorder. However, you can avoid these complications by replacing your missing tooth with a dental implant.
The Benefits of Dental Implants
- They can last a lifetime
- Implants are completely lifelike
- Replace both the root and the crown
