Losing a tooth starts a cycle of destruction within your mouth.
In a normal, healthy mouth, each upper tooth contacts the corresponding lower tooth allowing for a well-balanced chewing function. Losing a tooth can quickly destroy this balance.
When this balance is lost, the companion teeth lose support, causing drifting, shifting, abnormal decay and periodontal disease. The neighboring teeth are quickly subjected to these conditions and with each lost tooth, the problems are magnified and the destructive cycle continues.
