Dr. Christie Leedy says, "When that tooth is missing, then the bone starts deteriorating around where the tooth is missing and then the teeth above it start falling into its place and the teeth behind it start falling into the space. All the sudden you have more biting pressure on your front teeth."
"An implant fits right into the spot where the tooth was missing and basically gives you a root back.", explains Leedy.
