Do I have to have treatment ?

When hypodontia is diagnosed treatment is not always necessary. People lose teeth commonly due to decay or gum disease and suffer no ill health and maintain the function of their mouths. Some may argue that electively having treatment involving artificial teeth or braces will result in more problems for the remaining healthy teeth and gums. Having spaces at the back of the mouth does not necessitate the need for treatment when compared to the front of the mouth where aesthetic concerns such as spaces between teeth and crookedness may be apparent.
