Can a Missing Tooth Cause Depression?

  • December 29, 2014

Having a healthy smile begins by taking great care of the teeth that you have. Sometimes, though, that becomes difficult and you end up losing an adult tooth. Accidents happen. You might be thinking that you can get away with a missing tooth, especially if it isn’t in your smile zone, but you soon find out that a missing tooth has a massive impact. Your chewing is not what it used to be, and you might have trouble pronouncing some words. A missing tooth is not something to tolerate for very long.

The Physical Pain of a Missing Tooth
As we mentioned in the paragraph above, there are some physical complaints when you are missing a tooth. We often have patients who have been chewing on only one side of their mouth! This can cause a lot of pain for your jaw muscles when you aren’t using both sides of your jaw evenly. You might also notice the teeth adjacent to your gap shifting into the empty space, which can lead to alignment issues down the road. If the physical pain isn’t enough to catch your attention, the psychological effects might.

The Psychological Pain of a Missing Tooth
New research shows that a missing tooth can cause psychological discomfort as well as physical. Scientists have discovered a link between having a missing tooth and the rates of depression and anxiety. That gap in your smile could be causing your anxiety and poor feelings. It’s not difficult to understand when you think about how your eating and social habits change when you are missing an adult tooth.

Don’t spend another moment worrying about that missing tooth. We have restoration options here in the office! We even offer the top restoration available: the dental implant. Contact us today to learn more about how to restore your missing tooth. We would love to help you improve your smile and your health! We can’t wait to see you very soon.

    Hi there! Quick question that’s completely off topic.
    Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly?
    My blog looks weird when browsing from my apple iphone. I’m trying to
    find a template or plugin that might be able to resolve
    this problem. If you have any recommendations, please share.
    Cheers!
