If you are living with missing teeth, the gaps in your smile cause a large impact on your quality of life. Not only do you lose confidence, but your oral health decreases as well. When even one tooth is lost, you lose proper oral functions and bone density. As you lose bone density, your remaining natural teeth will begin to shift and eventually fall out. As a result, you also become more prone to gum disease and tooth decay. The negative implications from tooth loss make everyday tasks like eating and speaking more challenging. Over time, your quality of life will significantly decrease. Thankfully, you can restore your smile and enjoyment for life with your dentist in Fort Lauderdale for dental implants.
