Loss of teeth could be a mental, physical and social trauma to a patient. Absence of even a single tooth may bring about many changes in adjacent teeth like shifting of teeth into that area and chewing efficiency of jaws. These changes may not be evident as soon as the tooth is removed but definitely felt few years later. Eventually it may cause difficulty in fixing of artificial teeth and also loss of adjacent teeth when the changes are beyond repair. This could be prevented by replacing the lost tooth or teeth as soon as the extraction wound heeled.
