One of the worst things that can happen to your overall health is the loss of a tooth, that the person does not have replaced; or at the very least, have it fixed with other dental procedures. The reason is that tooth loss causes other teeth, near the gaping hole left behind by the lost tooth, to begin to shift out of their natural positioning.
