With daily brushing and flossing, eating healthy foods with minimal sugar, and regular visits to the dentist, all of the tools for good oral health exist. Unfortunately, sometimes human nature intervenes and we don’t always take care of our teeth as we should. If you lose teeth, you risk suffering facial collapse, or a collapse in the structure of bones in your face.

Dietary changes may cause health issues. Also, the patient with facial collapse cannot fit into dentures properly and additional dental problems may occur. Read more »
