Missing teeth not only affect your smile, but also your ability to chew decreases with missing teeth, it directly affects your overall medical health.
If a tooth is extracted and not replaced it in time, the surrounding teeth will fall toward the missing tooth space and the teeth opposite the hole will over-erupt. When that happens, it can cause premature loss of additional teeth. Missing teeth can also affect your occlusion. Although you could lose teeth, you still have the same amount of muscles, which means that you continue to chew with the same amount of force, regardless of how many teeth you have. As a result, the muscle force will affect your other teeth in a negative way. Applying the same force to a less number of teeth leads to more cracks, more breakage of the remaining teeth and potentially more teeth lost.
So it’s important to replace the missing tooth as soon as possible.
