Re: Thanks for advice, everyone. Still not sure if implant is necessary for pulled tooth?
Hi! From what I have read and heard, a missing molar can cause problems, it can cause your other teeth to shift and it can cause your upper molar to come down, because there is nothing at the bottom anymore. However, my husband has a back molar tooth missing and it hasn't caused any problems in the 5 years, yet. It all depends on the alignment of your teeth. Maybe I would get a second opinion. But if it were me, I'd most likely get the implant, if I could pay for it.
