A gap in between your teeth can detract from an otherwise attractive smile, but can also cause problems for your remaining natural teeth. The teeth adjacent to the space will gradually begin to drift out of position, which can mean you begin to develop unwanted and unsightly spaces in between other teeth.
Tooth loss also affects your opposing teeth, as they rely on biting and chewing to help keep them in position. If they cannot bite against another tooth they will gradually drift toward the empty space (over eruption). This can affect your bite, and may be awkward and costly to put right.
Tooth loss can also affect your facial profile. Your teeth help support your cheeks and lips, and maintain the correct dimensions between the upper and lower jaws. If you have lost multiple teeth you might find your facial features appear to have collapsed inwards, which can be prematurely aging.
