Many people are missing one or more teeth, and some have suffered complete tooth loss. The effects of losing teeth can be far-reaching. Tooth loss can potentially affect your ability to eat comfortably and to have a nutritionally sound diet. It can impact your ability to talk clearly, often resulting in a loss of self-confidence and self-esteem, and a reluctance to socialize with others, particularly at mealtimes. Traditionally, missing teeth have been replaced by tooth supported bridges or by partial dentures, while people missing all their teeth often had to rely on conventional full dentures. Luckily, there is a far better solution which is to have dental implants.
