Take a look at your smile in the mirror. You can’t see your back teeth, so they may not seem that important. Now, take a bite of something chewy. Suddenly, the fact that your back teeth are out of sight doesn’t mean they’re out of mind. Even if you can’t see your back teeth, they are important in maintaining your smile’s healthy function. Many patients who lose one or more back teeth think they don’t need to replace them because they can’t be seen, but replacing any missing tooth is essential to keep your smile whole and healthy.
