The sad truth about missing teeth. When natural teeth are severely compromised or missing, and tooth roots are lost, there is nothing left to stimulate any bone growth in the jawbone. The body senses that the jawbone is no longer necessary and begins to dissolve bone away.
Depending on the number of missing teeth, facial collapse can easily occur. The more missing teeth, the quicker and more severe the bone loss. For those missing all their natural teeth, bone loss can become so severe after a few years that it often becomes difficult to wear removable devices such as partials and dentures because there is little bone left to support them. This results in the lips folding in, and the lower face shriveling up (witches chin) with deep contours (marionette lines) showing a much older looking person.
