Many patients will come in for a repair right away if a front tooth is lost, but they will put it off if it’s a tooth in the back and not visible in the mirror.  The truth is, those molars in the back are just as important as the front teeth.  Your molars support your bite and the quickest way to lose your function for chewing is to lose your molars.  So get in and get that space filled.  This is the surest way to keep your front teeth from failing and keeping your own smile.
