However, treatment should be started by taking a dentist appointment as soon as possible. If we do not care about our missing teeth, What negative effects will you face, dentist in Turkey also explained 4 suggestions.

1. Reduction in chewing efficiency

Teeth help us grind our food. When we lose one or more teeth, it will be difficult for digestion to begin, as we cannot chew food efficiently. When food is not crushed well, it can trigger gasto-intestinal problems.

When you lose all your teeth, it becomes difficult to eat as much as necessary, which can lead to malnutrition.

2. Overload of remaining teeth

Another result of losing teeth is that more stress is placed on the remaining teeth during chewing. Chewing with the other side is preferred, especially when missing teeth are on the same side. This can also cause more tooth wear on one side than on the other.

3. Difficulty speaking

Along with our lips and tongue, our teeth also work to say certain letters. So it will be difficult to pronounce some words if one of the front teeth is missing.

4. Disruption of lip form

Deterioration of the form of the lip, our lower teeth contribute greatly to the support of the lower and upper lip.
