A stunning smile, which consists mostly of your front teeth, can change lives – it gives a person added confidence, have a youthful look, and has been scientifically proven makes you more approachable. But imagine if one or more of your front teeth fail and eventually becomes extracted, what would happen?
The most obvious would be having a gap or space. Every time you smile, this is the first thing that gets noticed. After a few months, even years, teeth begin to move towards the space that was once occupied by a tooth. Therefore, more spaces appear in between other teeth.
Aside from adjacent teeth moving, the antagonist (teeth at the opposing arch will also) move toward the opposite space and occupy it. Thus, alignment of the opposite arch deviates causing malocclusion.
Bone also decreases in height once teeth have been extracted. This is very prominent when more than one tooth has been extracted. Once significant amount of bone has been loss, there would be a decrease in facial support and lip support. The lips are retruded making the patient appear older.
In addition to these mentioned, extracted or missing teeth can also lead to psychological problems. The patient is now more self-conscious to smile because of the gap and spaces. This affects their confidence and self-esteem.
Restoring and replacing front teeth would be help in terms of esthetic, function, and your physique.
