When a patient is missing a tooth or chompers, their oral health will suffer. Without chompers, speaking and eating become increasingly tricky. Even with just a lone tooth missing, complications can grow. Sensitivity is another large issue for people missing pearly whites: when the dentin layer of chompers is bare, hot and cold materials can cause great pain in the teeth. And when some chompers are missing, other chompers can shift and become crooked, creating biting and grinding problems that will exacerbate with time.
