Studies show that more than 50% of the population has one or more missing teeth. Trauma generally causes the loss of one front tooth. The effect on one's well-being is clear.

Fortunately, an experienced dental implant expert can usually remove the remaining roots, place a dental implant, and secure new teeth to the implant within one or two hour visit. You can browse to know more about the Dental Implants.

One tooth loss in the back is usually caused by tooth decay or periodontal disease. Sometimes this can be treated like a front tooth but for various reasons it is often more time consuming.

More often than not the treatment for one missing back tooth is as follows:

  • Extraction of damaged teeth and grafting of the root socket. Wait 4 months ago
  • Placement of dental implants to replace lost tooth roots. Wait 4 to 6 months ago
  • Placement of braces on dental implants and taking notes for making crowns to replace missing teeth. Wait 3 weeks later
  • Permanent attachment from support to implant and crown cementation to support.

The need to replace one missing tooth in the back is often not as clear as the need to replace a missing single tooth in the front; but this is important. Gear is very easy to move.

We have all seen an Orthodontist put pressure on a tooth with a small rubber band and move it wherever he wants. Every tooth in the mouth has a position and purpose. When one tooth is lost, the body's natural reaction is to hover the adjacent teeth into the void created.
