Can Cavities That Have Been Removed Can Affect The Shape Of The Face?
Good morning, I’m 23 years old. My teeth number 29 and 31 were removed 3 years ago. I would like to ask, if if I don’t replace it with an implant, will my teeth marks shrink and affect the shape of my face? Although not many are revoked. R nThank you
The structure of the teeth and jaw can indeed affect the shape of the face. Tooth loss, for example due to being pulled out, generally does not have a big effect on the shape of the face, as long as it is not pulled much.
But if you have a lot of tooth extracted, your cheeks can look more gaunt so that the shape of the face will also change. Besides losing teeth can also interfere with the process of mastication and the process of speaking.
If you feel disturbed by tooth loss, whether there are facial changes, chewing disorders, or speech disorders, you should consult with a dentist so that you can be examined and given treatment, for example by giving dentures / dental implants.
Hope it helps you,
