A missing tooth should be replaced as quickly as possible. A missing tooth is not only an esthetical issue but in this case also dental health is in danger.

The neighboring teeth of the gap can move into the gap. Later, even the whole row of teeth can tip over. Tilted teeth are an ideal breeding ground for harmful bacteria and more plaque is formed. Disorders of the mastication function can cause indigestion or chronic pain. Therefore, the tooth gaps should be closed not only in the visible area, but also in the posterior tooth regions.
