Some people dismiss the idea of wearing partial dentures, considering them unnecessary. This kind of neglect entails many risks:
- Tooth migration. When a space is created, the remaining teeth tend to move towards the toothless area.
- Poor digestion. Since food is not chewed adequately, digestion becomes more difficult.
- Premature tooth attrition. The chewing function falls entirely to the remaining natural teeth.
- Neck, ear and head pain caused by altered chewing.
For more details on partial dentures, please consult your dentist.
