Missing Tooth

A missing tooth refers to a situation where a tooth is no longer present in the mouth. This can occur due to various reasons, including tooth extraction, trauma, dental disease, or congenital absence.


What Is Missing Tooth?

Facts about missing teeth:

  • Prevalence: Missing teeth are a common dental condition. According to the World Health Organization, globally, about 30% of people aged 65-74 have no natural teeth.
  • Oral Health Maintenance: Proper oral hygiene practices, including regular brushing, flossing, and dental check-ups, are crucial for maintaining healthy remaining teeth and preventing further tooth loss.
  • Dental Restoration Customization: Replacement options for missing teeth can be customized to match the color, shape, and size of your natural teeth, providing a seamless and aesthetically pleasing result.
  • Facial changes: Over time, the loss of teeth and subsequent bone resorption can cause changes in facial structure, such as sunken cheeks or sagging lips.

Gaps between teeth can accumulate food debris and bacteria, increasing the risk of tooth decay and gum disease.

Shifting teeth due to missing teeth can cause misalignment, bite issues, and potential temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders, leading to jaw pain and dysfunction.

More Abouts Missing Tooth

Replacing missing teeth can restore your ability to bite, chew, and speak properly, improving your overall oral function. This allows you to enjoy a wider range of foods and communicate effectively.

Missing teeth can affect the appearance of your smile and facial aesthetics, potentially leading to self-consciousness or reduced confidence. Replacing missing teeth can enhance the appearance of your smile, restoring your self-esteem.


When a tooth is missing, neighboring teeth can shift or drift into the empty space, causing misalignment and bite problems. Additionally, the absence of tooth roots can lead to bone loss in the jaw. Replacing missing teeth can help maintain proper dental alignment, prevent further tooth loss, and preserve the integrity of the jawbone.
