Perhaps it is fair to suggest that there may be many who ignore this importance. They may not yet be fully aware of what damage they could be doing to their overall oral and dental health and hygiene. The perception may have been that because such teeth would never be seen it would not need to be prioritized. Front teeth, on the other hand, will always be seen. So should teeth go missing, folks would not hesitate to replace these with full or partial dentures.
They fit reasonably well enough and they no longer need to worry about looking like an idiot. But they could end up feeling like right royal fools should they choose to ignore the importance of full or partial dentures for back teeth commerce. Ignorance never pays. But damage done through this could pay a lot more, not necessarily in monetary terms. Always think in these terms. Any form of gap, no matter whether it is in front or at the back of your jaw, becomes a haven for disease the moment a tooth goes missing.
With the fighting resilience of that tooth gone, the remaining gum area automatically becomes vulnerable to bacterial invasions. And so too any surrounding teeth. Just like the virus, the disease spreads. The moment a tooth goes missing, any tooth, doesn’t matter where it is located, you do this. You dial your local dentist at the earliest opportunity and then you make every effort to keep that appointment.
Once all diagnostic and cleaning work has been completed, the dentist is likely to set in motion the building and installation of a partial denture at the earliest. And it has been done. Patients have been able to receive a new denture on the very day that they went to see the dentist.
