In this video Dr. Adrian Fenderson dentisi in Napa, CA discusses the consequences of missing teeth. In some cases missing teeth in the back or front of the mouth can cause headaches that only a periodontist or a dentist can treat. After tooth loss, the jaw bone begins to shrink. The ridge of the jawbone becomes much thinner, limiting the options and possibilities of tooth replacement. The remaining teeth no longer have the support that the lost teeth and bone provided. Many years of bone loss may cause your face to change. Your mouth and jaw appear to collapse, your lips look thinner, and there is an increase in wrinkles near the mouth and neck. Also, with no support, the teeth begin to drift and erupt toward open areas. This overload can move and weaken those teeth, possibly leading to additional tooth loss. Cosmetic dental procedures can be done at Cosmetic and Family Dental Care of Napa, CA. For more
