You’re here because you want to maintain chewing power, keep a stable bite, prevent facial collapse and not have any gaps in your smile, right?
Maths quiz for you! 300,000 -1 = 325,000
WHAT?! Allow me to explain. Every year on average you chew 300,000 times. If you lose one of your main chewing teeth, this increases to 325,000 times per year. Lose more teeth, and the number goes up faster. This is why replacing missing teeth with something FIXED is very important. The more times you chew, you increase the load on your remaining teeth and increase the chance of cracking and then losing another tooth. It’s a slippery slope towards losing more and more teeth.
Studies have shown when you start losing teeth, you can’t eat as well and often start limiting food choices which then impact nutrition and health. Studies have also shown removable dentures only restore 10% of your chewing power. WE ARE MEANT TO HAVE FIXED TEETH. Not only is restoring missing teeth important for health and function but also important for aesthetics and maintaining normal facial support.
