At Dr. Ian Gray Dental Group, we know that dealing with tooth loss can be emotional and overwhelming. Patients experience tooth loss for numerous reasons, such as severe decay, trauma to the mouth, or illness. No matter the reason, it can be a confusing and difficult time, and we are here to help every step of the way. Patients who have lost a front tooth are often eager to find a tooth replacement solution as quickly as possible. Others, especially those who have missing teeth in the back of the mouth or older patients, are often more hesitant to schedule their appointment. We are frequently asked if rear molars need to be replaced, and our answer is always the same — your teeth, no matter where they are, should always be replaced.
