CONSEQUENCES OF A MISSING MOLAR TOOTH
Most people think that losing a tooth does not create much of a problem and that the remaining teeth are more than sufficient to carry out all the functions.
But please watch this video to see the consequences of a missing molar tooth… to see what happens to the adjacent teeth and the opposing teeth… how the equilibrium is lost.
This loss of equilibrium with the dentition can also affect the TM joints (jaw joints) adversely over a period of time, due to lopsided and compromised chewing patterns. Replacement of missing tooth / teeth is very important to maintain form, function & equilibrium.
