Can Having No Teeth Have Long Term Damaging Affects?
Unfortunately as we get older it is a natural process that our bone in our jaw fades away, causing teeth to feel loose and eventually fall out. The rate at this happens will vary from one person to the other, and in some case you can enjoy life at an older age still with your natural teeth in tact (with good oral care).
As teeth do fall out though, it speeds up the process of bone resorption which is when the bone in the jaw fades away – causing even more surrounding teeth to feel loose. When you have your natural teeth they do act as stabilisers for the mouth and help slow the affects of bone resorption. So losing your teeth can be quite debilitating for the remaining teeth.
