Why replace missing teeth

With time, if even one tooth is missing, the space may cause:

— teeth in front of space to drift back creating spaces in between front teeth.

— teeth behind space to tilt forward.

— tooth above space to erupt down.

Because these teeth drift out of position, several conditions may occur:

— severe occusal (bite) problems that could lead to clicking of the jaw, headaches and jaw pain.

— hard to clean areas are created which will lead to tooth decay and gum disease.
