Teeth are vital for every person. If you lose a tooth or need to have a tooth removed, it should be replaced as soon as possible. If the tooth is not replaced quickly enough, it can cause problems in your bite. Replacing a missing tooth also becomes difficult over time.
A lost tooth can be replaced with a variety of prosthetic methods. The most common ways to replace a tooth are a dental bridge or a dental implant. The dental bridge is a prosthetic solution that replaces a lost tooth and is attached to the adjacent teeth. The tooth can also be replaced with an implant, which is a lifelong solution for tooth replacement when well cared for.

The lost tooth should be replaced as soon as possible after the tooth is removed. If a long time has passed from losing the tooth, replacing it becomes more difficult. This is because the jawbone begins to shrink from the area where the tooth has been removed. After a longer period of time, you may need to have a bone graft to build an implant, for example.
Tooth loss can cause problems with the jaw joints as well as the bite muscles. Problems can arise as headaches, pain in the jaw joint and jaw. In addition, the jaw joint may click when the mouth is opened or closed. If you have any of the above symptoms, contact your dentist.
The teeth live and change constantly, and they withstand a lot of strain and biting forces. When a tooth is lost, the adjacent teeth begin to move and tilt toward the space left by the lost tooth. This also causes a decrease in the adhesion of the remaining teeth. A tilted and displaced tooth cannot withstand as much bite stress as a healthy tooth. The jawbone can also shrink due to tooth loss.
Tooth loss can cause problems with the jaw joints as well as the bite muscles. Problems can arise as headaches, pain in the jaw joint and jaw. In addition, the jaw joint may click when the mouth is opened or closed.
If several teeth have to be removed, it will substantially affect the bite. For example, if the cheek tooth needs to be removed, the bite may change. The bite can become unbalanced when the tooth does not have a bite opponent. As a result, the strain on other teeth increases, and overloading the teeth can cause problems. Uneven strain can also cause uneven wear on the teeth.
A missing tooth can also cause shame. It is worth mentioning to the dentist if something in the appearance of your teeth bothers you.
