A recent study carried out by researchers from Newcastle University highlights the impact tooth loss can have. As a result they have called for tooth loss to be taken more seriously. The study discovered that losing teeth could result in long-term complications, and found people did experience life-changing consequences due to tooth loss.
According to the study, people who had experienced tooth loss were reluctant to leave their home, and tended to be disappointed in themselves for requiring dentures. In the UK, more than two million people have lost all their teeth in either their upper or lower jaw, and even though this study implies this loss can be just as damaging as having a long-term health condition, it is often not taken very seriously.
