Why should I replace a missing back tooth?

When a tooth is lost, the surrounding teeth and the tooth above can drift or move out of alignment, disrupting your bite relationship. Shifting creates gaps where more food can be trapped, which can lead to tooth decay and gum disease. Muscle-tension headaches, migraines, and pain can result from shifting teeth. Your dentist can recommend solutions that recreate strength and beauty while maintaining bite stability.
