When a person has problems with their teeth it can be very painful. Teeth that are bad can abscess and cause a number of other health problems as well. When this occurs, the only real solution is to have the bad teeth extracted. When one or more of the natural teeth are extracted, this can also cause a variety of problems. It can make chewing more difficult, smiling and talking less enjoyable, and can cause the teeth that are left to move and become misaligned. For this reason, it is very important to replace any teeth that have had to be extracted.
