What happens if you don't replace missing teeth?

This makes a person look older and results in an aged appearance. A deteriorated jawbone also risks further tooth loss and eliminates some tooth loss replacement options. If you don't have missing teeth replaced, you also risk difficulty speaking, and chewing and biting food. This is honestly no way to live and you owe it to yourself to have a healthy life.
