Speaking Becomes Much More Difficult When You Begin Losing Teeth

Posted on 6/10/2018 by Brandon Cooley
Losing Teeth Cooley Smiles WA 98028-4839Whether you lost a tooth when you were a child, because of some trauma, or due to periodontal disease, speaking becomes much more difficult when you begin losing teeth and it can affect the way in which you interact with others. This can lead to low self-esteem and less social interactions.

Your oral health is extremely important not only for aesthetic reasons, but to prevent tooth loss. We only have one set of teeth and we are here to help you keep them for as long as you live, which is possible with regular checkups.

Missing Teeth Affect Speech

Teeth are part of spoken language and if you have a missing tooth or a big gap, it will affect the way in which your words sound. This can lead to a lack of confidence and self-consciousness when you speak in public or even among friends.

Reasons for Tooth Loss

Tooth loss doesn't always occur because of lack of dental care and poor hygiene. Some people lose teeth when they are younger, taking a hit while playing a sport or falling from a bicycle.

Preventing Tooth Loss

The best way to prevent tooth loss is by consistently visiting your dentist, as well as brushing and flossing at home for two-minutes, at least twice a day.

The teeth in your mouth don't just help to chew food when eating, but are part of the facial structure. Speaking becomes much more difficult when you begin losing teeth, which can also lead to additional tooth loss.

Now more than ever before, people with missing teeth have options, such as dental implants. If you have missing teeth and would like more information, we can help directly, or refer you to an oral surgeon who will be happy to explain your choices
