It’s only one tooth — what difference will it make?
Actually, it could make a big difference. Your health can be affected. And you may start to experience pain with the loss of just one tooth.
Saving a tooth by performing a root canal can save you a lot of trouble down the road. If the tooth is allowed to die and then has to removed, it will affect your bite. And this can send you down a road of pain. Having a bad bite can lead to jaw and neck problems. And those can lead to problems with your back. You get the picture.
Also, a missing tooth is an ideal place for bacteria to grow, leading to decay and possibly gum disease around the teeth on either side of the space. For more information on the connection between gum disease and your health, please go to mayoclinic.com.
