Hi, you need to get a professional cleaning done. If that does not help then you may go for teeth whitening.

Consequences of Unreplaced Missing Teeth

BDS, MDS - Orthodontics

Consequences of Unreplaced Missing Teeth

Our teeth are most definitely, vital for our living. Our everyday choices, pertaining to our lifestyle would call for changes, adjustments and lots of sacrifices without them. Though, a number of replacement options are available for the people with missing teeth, the most recommended are dental implants. Ask why?

They are simply the ideal solution due to their look and feel, which is similar to the natural teeth.

What happens if replacement is not considered?
To prevent the nasty repercussions from occurring, it is necessary that any missing teeth are replaced in time. Though, the symptoms of problems due to missing teeth only appear to be superficial in the early stages, the long term effects may certainly prove to be quite severe.

Some of the short term consequences of missing teeth are as follows:

  1. People with missing teeth tend to feel self-conscious or even embarrassed at times, while they talk to others or smile.
  2. Problem in speech is a common issue that may arise due to tooth loss.
  3. When teeth are missing, people find it difficult to consume some certain food types. These may include ones which contain some essential nutrients, hence leading to possible malnutrition.
  4. Increased wear or stress can also lead to the weakening of the teeth that are remaining.
  5. People with tooth loss find it difficult to chew the food properly.
  6. When teeth are missing, there is movement of the teeth that remain, to compensate for the gap places created. This leads to ugly looking gap teeth.

Though, these were the short term issues, the major consequence of not getting any lost teeth replaced is the gradual bone loss. Our teeth are firmly embedded in the jaw bone. Chewing and biting are the constant uses, which are required by the jaw bone to remain hale and hearty as well as active. You may believe it or not, be it at the beginning or at the end; the major focus is not on the teeth, but on the bones.

Maintaining form as well as density of the bone requires regular stimulation, coming from the teeth, as mentioned above. The contact with teeth causes small stresses, which the periodontal ligament transmits to the bone and prompts its continual rebuilding as well as remodelling. When any missing teeth are not replaced, it leads to the gradual deterioration in the jaw bones, over time. This not only results in facial shape changes but also will eventually burn a huge hole in your pockets, as increased complications will also lead to increased costs required for rectifying the problems.

So, now it's up to you. Choose healthy and wise. Go for teeth replacement at the earliest, if and when, need arises.

You should not reason or relate your health issues. Rather than getting confuse and complicating your problems you should see a dentist. If you r having problem with height of teeth do not try absurd methods. It will never benefit this way rather than that it will only add to your worries. See a dentist get it resolved. Many technique's are available now a days. It could be fixed orthodontic treatment or removable appliance might be needed or just simple veneering might help. See a dentist first and improve your condition taking his help.

Hi, lybrate-user. There is a simple home remedy I can suggest you. Try oil pulling using pure coconut oil every morning in empty stomach atleast for 5-10 mts. Take two teaspoon full of coconut oil. Put it in your mouth. Swish it atleast for 5-10 mts. This action supposedly draws out toxins in your body, primarily to improve oral health but also to improve your overall health.

You are suffering from sensitivity. Most of the time, pain stops in few mins, isn't it? consult a dentist & get your full mouth examination. There are many reasons to have sensitivity. Your doctor will prescribe you some desensitizing paste or he may advise you some fillings to treat the problem.

Multivitamin cap, for five days in the morning after meals & antiseptic ointment or gel. Apply Mucapain gel on the area of ulcer until then. Mouth sores are common and rarely cause complications. Most go away in about a week, but it’s important to monitor any mouth sores you develop. If you are concerned, or if the sore doesn’t seem to be healing, contact your dentist Rinse your mouth thoroughly with a mouth wash after every meals. Advance procedures can be done with laser.

Hi, you need to get that tooth saved with treatment. Pain in tooth indicates it is infected, please see your dentist as soon as possible. It requires treatment to get away with pain and to save tooth. You can rinse and take painkillers for time being.

Kindly get your cavities filled and also get scaling done if needed. Use a gum paint twice daily for 15 days. Brush your teeth twice daily using correct brushing technique. More than the toothpaste it is the correct brushing technique that helps.
