When a tooth is missing, it is important to replace the tooth as soon as possible to avoid complications. If treatment is delayed, bone loss will occur in the surrounding area, as the bone will no longer function as an anchor for the tooth. As well, when all teeth are present in the mouth, each tooth helps to maintain the position of the adjacent teeth. A missing tooth creates a space that the surrounding teeth will move toward as they attempt to equalize the space. Because of this, your teeth become more prone to decay and periodontal disease as food is more easily trapped between displaced teeth.
In deciding between a bridge, denture or implant, it is important to understand which restoration will best suit your needs and to have the tooth replaced as soon as possible.
