The causes for tooth lose is usually dental cavities or decay, but trauma due to sports and accidents is also an emerging cause of missing teeth.
By the time one reaches old age, missing teeth problem becomes more severe and geriatric persons tend to have a lot of teeth important teeth extracted and missing, which leads to poor chewing ability, bad bite and hence poor nutrition, poor health and restricted lifestyle.

Single missing tooth condition
When a single tooth is missing / extracted, whether it is in front or back segment of jaws, they need to be replaced otherwise the teeth on the both sides and the tooth in opposing jaw, tend to grow and tilt towards the missing tooth area. With side teeth tilting in the open space, patients face problems in chewing, cleaning and eventually decay starts to happen in the side teeth. The tooth in the opposing jaw also grow towards the open space, causing interference in bite and decay in the teeth next to it.
A missing tooth in front is a big cosmetic problem, and rather a cosmetic emergency as it hampers the normal smile. People with a hectic social and professional life, cannot afford to be without proper set of ‘social teeth’.
Single implant is the ideal solution in such a case. And with advancements now, dental implant can be placed at the same time when the tooth is being extracted. This is called Immediate placement of implants.
