Back Molars: Do They Need to Be Replaced after Extraction?
If you’ve lost a tooth in the back of your mouth, you might already realize this is fairly common. People lose back molars for many reasons, including tooth decay, a broken tooth, trauma, or gum disease. Because it probably doesn’t show when you smile, you may not have considered getting the tooth replaced.
But even when teeth aren’t visible after loss, it’s still important to replace them to protect the health of the rest of your mouth. At our Burnaby, BC dental clinic, our dentists can go over options for tooth replacement if you have had an extraction. Just give us a call to make an appointment for a consultation.
