You may find yourself asking, “How can missing teeth cause teeth pain when some of my teeth are gone?” Well, let’s clarify: When you deal with tooth loss, the openings and change in your bite can actually cause remaining teeth to feel uncomfortable! As a result, replacing those that are gone actually becomes very important. Not sure you’re following but this is sounding very familiar? Consider why this can become uncomfortable and what you can do about it.
Teeth That Never Touched Now Make Contact
Before you experience missing teeth, there’s a certain way your teeth fit together to chew and to speak. When you lose some teeth, it’s possible that some of your teeth that never made contact suddenly begin making contact. The result? This can cause teeth pain. Fortunately, this does not have to go on forever!
You Now Rely On Different Teeth For Chewing And Speaking
Now, let’s talk about the teeth that have begun picking up the slack. In some cases, the teeth you are currently missing may have been carrying a heavy load or may have been assisting you in articulating certain sounds for speech. Now that they are gone, you are relying on other teeth for chewing or speaking, which may result in teeth pain.
