In most cases, extracted tooth need to be replaced immediately! The importance and need for replacing a missing tooth cannot be overlooked. One should replace the even a single missing tooth, as the opposing tooth would migrate to the space leading to mis-alignment. Even the adjacent teeth will show inclination towards the missing tooth region causing pathological migration. So what after a tooth extraction? After the removal of a tooth the body heals the cavity from which the tooth was removed. To heal, there are many natural growth factors present in the blood which increases the speed of bone formations.
Pathological migration would lead to mobility, spacing, food lodgments, gum inflammation and bone loss. The shift of healthy teeth towards the vacant space would cause severe malocclusion. The chewing efficacy would hampered causing digestion problems. Further prolonging the replacement causes imbalanced occlusion creating a load on the Temporo-mandibular joint. Once Temporo- mandibular joint affected it causes pain radiating to the lower jaws and ear. “Headache” a very common symptom experienced.
Seeing to the overall adverse effects of one or more extracted tooth or teeth, one highly recommended to that particular tooth or teeth with Implants, fixed prosthesis commonly known as bridge work or removable prosthesis for a healthy confident lifestyle.
