Why to Fill Up a Missing Tooth?

Why to Fill Up a Missing Tooth?

A missing tooth can be responsible for causing different health issues. Along with these, a person loses his ability of chewing with missing teeth, develop problems related to speaking and his overall facial appearance also gets affected.

In case of a missing tooth or several missing teeth, it is best advised to get dentures fitted. Dentures are false teeth, which are fitted in the oral cavity in place of lost natural teeth.

Here are several reasons why it is important to fill up a missing tooth:

  1. Shifting of tooth: When a tooth is lost, the surrounding teeth start drifting or moving in the open gap where the lost tooth used to be. The surrounding teeth are shifted out of the alignment. This affects the appearance of your face, and your teeth seem crooked and misplaced. It is necessary to replace a missing tooth with dentures in order to restrict the shifting before it is too late.
  2. TMJ Syndrome: After a tooth is lost and the surrounding teeth start shifting, the alignment is changed. This gives rise to problems with biting and creates issues with the jaws. The upper jaw and the lower jaw fail to meet correctly, and this causes strain and damage to the jaw joint. This phenomenon is called TMJ syndrome.
  3. Decay of tooth and gum diseases: After the shifting of surrounding teeth when a tooth is lost, the teeth alignment changes. This makes it difficult for a person to reach several areas in the gum with a toothbrush or floss. This makes plaque and bacteria accumulate in that area and they cannot be reached or cleaned. Tooth decay and gum diseases or periodontal diseases that are likely to affect those spots. These diseases and disorders cause further tooth loss.
  4. Alteration in facial appearance: A missing tooth should be replaced properly and a dentist must make sure that the root of the missing tooth is removed. In case the root is not removed totally, bone deterioration is likely to occur. Bone loss occurs in the jaw area, and this may result in a change or alteration in your facial appearance. A timely replacement of a missing tooth will prohibit bone loss from the jaw area, and you will be saved from any kind of alteration in your facial appearance, which might affect your looks and self-esteem greatly.

A missing tooth should never be ignored and in case you lose a tooth, you should see a dentist as soon as possible. By filling up a missing tooth, you will be able to save yourself from several issues related to the mouth and gums.

You mean artificial teeth are hurting you first of all which type of artificial teeth you have removable or fixed? if its hurts then most probably its fitting is not good anyways another artificial can help you or an implant is a great option little costlier but if you are of young age then I personally recommend implant hope you get the answer.

Hi, This is Bikash. I have gums problem. It bleeds while brushing and also I have bad breath.

Hi, This is Bikash. I have gums problem. It bleeds while brushing and also I have bad breath.
Hello Mr. lybrate-user Gum bleed with bad breath is most commonly present because of improper dental hygiene. Kindly change your toothbrush every 3 months and brush your teeth twice daily, floss daily, say no to tobacco, Drink plenty of water. Gingivitis is very common gum disease that is caused due to poor brushing technique and poor oral hygiene. You may also develop pain in gums due to this but do not worry, just eat well, take vitamin C- carrots, pomegranate, citrus fruits, guava, oranges etc to keep your gums healthy.

My gum started bleeding at two places two months back. My doctor suggested to apply Rexidin-M Forte Gel twice a day to the affected area. After 3 days it became alright. Now again the same problem repeated at a different place. What should I do now.

Hello lybrate-user. Gum bleeding involves many underlying causes. Brushing. Vitamin c deficiency, bad oral hygiene, plaque are the main factorsleading to bleeding gums. Not only brushing twice daily but regular visits to a dentist and getting professional scaling done once in 6 months helps you.

Cost is different in different places. Deposits in teeth cause gum inflammation. Gum Scaling will remove deposits. your gum will heal properly and bleeding will stop. But maintain good oral hygiene too. Rinse your mouth after every meal. Brush twice daily. Use mouthwash.

I am 25 year female met with an dental accident in. I have gone through a dental surgery and had wire braces on teeth five years ago. Now m having foul smell or bad breath problem after that aaccident. Wat should I do?

BDS
Dentist, Mumbai
Hello , the problem of bad breath is called halitosis. Knowing your history of accident I can say that probably because of the rearrangement of your teeth after the accident you must be having the problem of plaque accumulation which is soft white deposits on the teeth due to misaligned teeth. You probably require a round of cleaning followed by mouthwash rinsing for few days. Kindly see a dentist for your cleaning procedure and he would be able to tell you more after looking at your teeth clinically.
