Some common causes of tooth loss are trauma to the mouth, injury to teeth from sports or an accident, tooth decay and gum disease. Additionally dentures and bridges have often been used to replace missing teeth.
Whether it's a single tooth or multiple incisors, dental implants connect directly to the jaw bone itself requiring no root structure replacement and usually within a few weeks, crowns are then installed and normal mouth function can resume. The important thing is to address your oral health anytime you lose teeth or have mouth trauma as over time, shifts in your teeth and gums can occur which could have been avoided.
Additionally bite problems and difficulties chewing can result in changes to the overall facial structure including the jaw, skin and muscles of the face. Healthy foods like fruits and vegetables that require chewing might be avoided by someone who has experienced a need for dental implants but has not addressed the problem, thus resulting in poor nutrition and a decrease in overall health.
