How Tooth Loss Ages You
- Bone loss – Your teeth connect to your jaw bones. When a permanent tooth is lost, the jaw bone in that area no longer has the same source of support, and begins to resorb (dissolve). Bone density helps ensure that your jaw stays strong, that you don’t suffer fractures, and that your bone structure remains consistent.
- Changing facial structure – When bone loss takes place after you lose a tooth, your face begins to change. The gap left behind, paired with the resorbing bone, lead to your skin sagging and hollows forming on your face.
- Appearance of your smile – Your teeth typically play a significant role in first impressions. If all yours aren’t in place, that sends negative messages. People will judge you by the gap in your smile, and will probably believe that you are older than you actually are.
