If a Back Tooth Is Lost, Will You Miss It?

If a Back Tooth Is Lost, Will You Miss It?

According to studies, the majority of the world population has at least one missing tooth, when it comes to dental health. Usually, one of the back teeth is missing. Most people do not care about a missing tooth as it is not visible and does not affect one's image. However, a missing back tooth is a matter of concern, and it matters. This is because of the tooth's function and also because bone loss occurs when a back tooth is lost.

Wisdom Tooth: Wisdom tooth or 3rd molar extraction The wisdom teeth, also known as the third molars, are the final set of molars to erupt. Not everyone keeps these teeth, nor are they necessary for having a healthy, beautiful smile. In fact, they can cause harm if they do not come in properly. When these molars come in, usually between the ages of 16 and 20, there may not be enough room left for them to erupt. As a result, they can emerge at an angle, they may crowd the mouth and sometimes they don't fully emerge. This can lead to future oral health problems like infections and pain. So, it should be extracted.

Effects of a lost back tooth: A lost back tooth should not be ignored, even though it did not cause you much inconvenience initially. The problems start occurring slowly and when they reach a fatal stage, a lot of dental problems are likely to occur. A lost tooth causes several problems and damage to your oral health and appearance if you leave it unattended. 

Here are the negative effects of a lost back tooth:

  1. The alveolar bone, which surrounds the teeth requires a good amount of regular stimulation for maintaining health. The lack of stimulation will slowly make the bone waste away.
  2. With a missing back tooth, the bone width is likely to decrease by 25% within a year and will continue decreasing with the passage of time.
  3. The bone loss which occurs due to a missing back tooth will also cause problems in chewing food, and the back molars are designed especially for chewing and grinding food. Your speech will also be affected because of a missing back tooth.
  4. Extensive bone loss can even lead to negative changes in the facial shape. The facial shape also collapses in some cases. This will affect your appearance and will lead to low self-esteem and self-confidence.

Dental Implants: an ideal remedy for a lost back tooth: The best remedy for a missing back tooth is to get a dental tooth implant. Dental implants work effectively to maintain the bone structure. This is because the implants are fused directly into the bone. The bone can function properly and stay healthy after a dental implant is fused into it. You should consult a dentist to choose the best type of dental implant to replace your lost back tooth. Once the implant is installed, your dental functioning will return to normal soon. Little time is required to get adjusted to the implant.

If a back tooth is lost, you will surely miss it. A lost back tooth can affect your overall dental health, may cause bone loss and can even change your facial shape. Dental tooth implants should be used to replace a lost back tooth for maintaining good dental health.

Hello lybrate-user you can turn into white by maintaining oral hygiene. The slight dull color of teeth is due to deposits on its surfaces. If they are dark yellow you can go for bleaching of your teeth. But if they are slightly yellow then you can try snow dent tooth paste regularly. Apply it on your teeth and wait for 10 min. After that you can even brush with it.

Always make sure that the baby's mouth is cleaned either with water or gauge before she/he sleeps. Food remaining in mouth , even if it's mother milk , will infect the gums or cause caries.

Yes there is lot of work being done on tobacco cessation, first of all he will have to make up his own mind that he wants to leave tobacco. Once he decide than dental surgeon can guide him he will need cleaning and polishing of teeth which will give him a change feeling and than he needs to keep his oral hygiene maintained by brushing twice a day and use listerin mouthwash regularly and slowly withdraw the habit of tobacco chewing.

Can you prescribe a good toothpaste of affordable price for white teeth and red gums.
If you have red gums also I think you would first require a scaling polishing by a dentist than use good co soft tooth brush with any standard tooth paste of your choice.

I have bad breath please suggest any remedy since I have tried mouthwash, brushing twice daily still it persists.

MDS - Periodontics
Dentist, Thane
Hi Mr. Lybrate-user, bad breath is a very common problem occurring due to multiple reasons. Most common would be if there is any issue with your gums, or if any of your tooth is decay or if there is any gastric trouble. Kindly get yourself checked by your local dentist for a better treatment planning. Problem of bad breath generally gets resolved over a simple cleaning of all your teeth but an early diagnosis helps faster.
