Although not ideal, it is common to need a tooth extracted or to have a tooth fall out due to severe decay, gum disease, trauma to the mouth, and effects following intense medical treatments such as chemotherapy and radiation. Many patients question if their missing teeth need to be replaced, especially when a rear molar needs to be removed. Patients often think they can postpone or permanently delay choosing a tooth replacement and leave the space empty because it is not visible. At Aesthetic Smile Design, we always recommend replacing a tooth no matter where it is in your mouth.
