Missing Teeth

The number of teeth affect the look or aesthetic appearance of the smile and the function of the jaws and the teeth.

In cases of missing anterior (front) teeth, symmetry plays an important role in whether it is best to have a missing tooth/teeth replaced or the space of the missing tooth closed.

Missing teeth may result from hereditary causes (quite common) or environmental factors such as decay, accidents where teeth may have been knocked out, or the failure of teeth to erupt and become "impacted".
