Replacing Lost Tooth

What happens if a missing tooth is not replaced?
What is less obvious is that, other than looks, a lost tooth, whether front or back, can also affect the health of the remaining teeth in your mouth if not replaced. When a tooth is lost, teeth on either side of the space will tilt towards the space. The tooth in the opposite jaw will over-erupt into the space. In time, it may contact the opposite gum, resulting in repeated biting which can cause ulcers.

These tooth movements also create gaps between teeth where food debris and bacteria will collect. As these gaps are especially difficult to clean, gum disease or tooth decay can result over time.

All these problems can be prevented by replacing your lost tooth promptly, more than that your lost function of eating will be restored.

Replacement after tilting and over-eruption have occurred can be difficult.
