If your missing teeth are visible when you talk and smile, they can be a major source of embarrassment, but there are a lot of other issues that can occur due to missing teeth, even if they can’t be seen by the average person you come across.
Remove your candidacy for potential jobs in the public eye
Most companies want to make a certain physical impression, and that doesn’t include a company representative who doesn’t have full teeth when they talk. If the role involves a management or customer service position in the public eye, you probably aren’t going to be getting the job without decent teeth.
Constipation and digestive problems
Did you know that missing teeth have a direct relation to the health of your digestive system and bowels? When you are missing teeth, you are not able to chew your food properly, and you are bound to swallow bigger particles than you should. When that happens, it can make it difficult for food to process through your digestive tract and be expelled as waste.
Anytime you are missing teeth or have tooth pain your nutrition is going to be affected. There will be many things that aren’t comfortable to eat, like crisp fruits and vegetables that are important for overall health. Cooking such vegetables long enough to be soft takes quite a bit of the nutritional value away.
