If you don’t replace a lateral missing tooth, you will be looking at a series of changes in the entire mouth. You may have the migration if adjacent teeth and of the antagonist tooth, changing the occlusion, also periodontal problems and cavities. In every one of these cases the prosthetic treatment becomes more difficult. In today’s literature we don’t have depicted all the consequences of alveolar bone loss. The purpose of this study was to determine the negative modifications registered after the tooth removal. Using radiographic investigations, we calculate the distance between the edentulous’s space and adjacent teeth to estimate the changes in the teeth position.
