Missing even just one tooth can cause a cascade of oral health complications, so missing a large number or all your teeth can present even more problems.
First, missing teeth severely limits your diet: You can no longer enjoy tough, hard, or crunchy foods because you lack the teeth to chew them properly. Most people with missing teeth find themselves turning to soft foods, which may be lacking in nutrients.
Second, your jawbone will begin to shrink: Because your teeth are no longer there to keep the bone healthy and strong, it quickly deteriorates. If you have some remaining teeth left, this can lead them to shift out of alignment. It can also lead to additional tooth loss.
Whether you have any teeth left or not, a shrinking jawbone can cause your lips to turn inward, and other facial tissues to sag and collapse. As a result, you may look years (even decades) older than you are.
