Missing Teeth

A missing tooth can happen in both milk teeth and permanent teeth. If a milk tooth is missing, it may be because of its shedding period or may be removed due to caries. If permanent teeth are missing, it may be because of any gum problem that weakens the teeth, removed due to caries, developmental defect, or the tooth remains inside the bone. Treatment of missing teeth includes replacing the tooth or orthodontically moving the tooth to its position.
