For many people experiencing tooth loss, their outward appearance can become a great source of stress. However, as this video highlights, missing teeth can negatively affect more than just one’s thoughts. People with missing teeth are also at risk for physical problems such as heart disease, malnutrition, and certain types of cancer. This is due in large part to their inability to consume healthy food that is rich in vitamins and minerals.
According to the American Dental Association, dental patients who are missing one or more teeth are more likely to fill their diet with processed foods that are high in cholesterol, since they are easier to chew. Dental implants and other devices can remedy this problem and leave patients more capable of eating a balanced diet.
