Please visit for more information. All rights reserved. M-0447-FLY-EN-INT-BHCL-00-072021 Every tooth counts Your teeth don’t sit alone. Each one is an integral part of a carefully balanced system. Losing one opens a gap in your smile, lessens your ability to chew properly, and can adversely affect your diet and nutrition. More worryingly, tooth loss causes bone loss. This threatens the stability of nearby teeth. Frequently, it leads to facial changes that make you look older than you are. Whether at the front or towards the back, each tooth plays a vital role, in providing proper alignment. When you chew, healthy teeth stimulate and strengthen the jawbone maintaining sound bone mass. When one is missing the jawbone is no longer stimulated at that spot and consequently shrinks. Therefore, tooth loss leads to bone loss, which alters the shape of the face. Without the stimulating effect of teeth chewing on the jawbone, it contracts. This visibly shrinks the lips and jawline, making you appear older.
