That missing tooth means more gaps in your smile that you would prefer not to have. Replacing a tooth is not all about vanity, it is so much more. As much as your facial features may be enhanced it also improves your overall health. The boost in your smile is a bonus.

When you lose a tooth the surrounding teeth tends to shift to close the gaps. The teeth in your other jaw also begin moving. As you chew with missing teeth the biting force is unevenly distributed, this can actually lead to more loss of teeth. It can also compromise nutritional status that can impact your overall health.
