Tooth decay, injury and gum disease are common causes of a missing tooth. Some people are born with teeth missing or have a genetic disposition, causing teeth not to develop in the first place. They may have a baby tooth with no adult tooth underneath. The most common teeth to be missing are wisdom teeth either because they never emerged or were extracted.
It is important to replace a lost tooth for a functional bite, proper chewing of food, to prevent bone loss, stop teeth from shifting and for an attractive smile.
Teeth can be replaced by placing a dental implant, removable partial dentures, or a bridge.
Treatment costs for missing teeth will vary depending on the approach. Your dentist can discuss the options available with you and help to inform your decision, as well as make recommendations accordingly.
