What if I choose not to replace my missing teeth ? What are the risks?

When you lose teeth, your remaining teeth will shift, affecting your speech, bite, and ability to chew. More importantly, you will also lose the bone that supported the missing teeth, which can cause collapse of the facial structure as well as an increased risk of jaw fracture. Patients with multiple missing teeth also suffer from uneven bite force; therefore, remaining teeth will be damaged further and faster. The longer teeth are missing, the more difficult and expansive to restore them.
