Missing Teeth

More than half of the adult population of the UK has at least one missing tooth, and a decision must be reached whether a tooth or teeth need(s) to be replaced.

It is considered reasonable for up to four back teeth to be missing and not be replaced, but where more are missing or where adjacent teeth are missing, it is more important to replace them for reasons of stability or function (chewing).

Missing front teeth and first premolars may also need to be replaced for cosmetic reasons.
