Eksik dişler ve gizli tehlikeler https://www.milliyet.com.tr/pembenar/dt-pertev-kokdemir/

Have you lost a tooth due to trauma or tooth decay? Are you considering getting a tooth done? If you answered yes to these questions, then this article is for you.

Diş kaybetmek, kimsenin karşılaşmak istemediği olumsuz bir deneyimdir. Ne yazık ki genellikle travma, derin diş çürükleri ve hatta yaşlılık gibi çeşitli nedenlerle aniden ve beklenmedik bir şekilde bu durum karşınıza çıkabilir. Bir veya daha fazla dişinizi kaybettiyseniz, diş tedavisi yaptırmak yerine sorunu görmezden gelmek isteyebilirsiniz. Fakat asla bu sorunu ihmal etmemelisiniz. Çünkü, eksik dişler, aşağıdakiler de dahil olmak üzere birçok gizli tehlike oluşturabileceğinden, ihmal etmek akıllıca olmayacaktır.

1. Increased risk of dental caries

A missing tooth creates an unnatural cavity in your tooth structure. This gap provides the perfect space for small food particles and bacteria to hide. The resulting effect is usually tooth decay in neighboring teeth. If tooth decay is left untreated, it can get worse and require the extraction of a tooth that eventually results in another missing tooth. Then the vicious circle starts again.

2. Serious misalignment

Have you ever seen what happens when you pull out a card from a carefully constructed house of cards? The whole structure collapses. It is the same with your teeth. When you lose a tooth, the rest will gradually begin to slip and try to close the gap created. This can cause serious misalignments that may require you to wear braces to fix the problem.

3. Speech disorder

Your teeth play a fundamental role in sound articulation. This can mean that when one or more teeth are missing it can lead to a persistent mispronunciation of words. It can severely interfere with your daily communication with family, friends, and even coworkers. How do you overcome this? The solution is simple. With porcelain bridges or implant-supported porcelain, your pronunciation will improve instantly.

4. An unaesthetic appearance

Missing teeth are one of the most striking problems in dentistry. Whenever you smile, everyone can notice your missing tooth. In order to maintain an attractive appearance, you should make an appointment with your dentist and start treatment as soon as possible.

5. Sudden bone loss

This is a serious problem that especially affects people who lose their teeth with age. When one or more of your teeth is missing, the remaining bone structure gradually loses its shape and density. This can create a gap in your cheeks and forcing your cheek muscles to pull in, thus causing the droopy cheeks that occur.

For this reason, if any tooth loss occurs, you should replace your missing tooth with a new one within 6 months at the latest.
