Teeth get old as people age and they do not always stay young and strong. Your teeth are put through extreme wear and tear throughout your lifetime. Therefore, it is sometimes a natural thing for a person to lose a tooth or multiple teeth as they start to age.
Some of the reasons we might lose teeth through our lifetimes of wear and tear is trauma, cavities, tooth decay, and simply bad oral health. However, if a tooth is lost, it is very important for your jawbone to ensure that you have a false tooth or teeth inserted into the same place.

They keep your jawbone healthy and from deteriorating which thing creates your facial structure. Not only is it important to restore your tooth or teeth because of this, but the longer a tooth is not slotted in the space, to more your mouth can shift, it can become painful to chew and it can get worse with time.

When a patient loses a tooth, your teeth then start to shift into the space that is left. This can cause alignment issues and lead to bite issues down the road that cause effect the cheeks and gums.
