The molars residing in the back of your mouth are work-horse teeth. Each one works in concert with another molar to allow you to grind and chew tough foods. If you’ve lost one to dental avulsion, untreated tooth decay or required extraction, it can significantly impair your oral function.

In some cases, the molar can be restored in two appointments by installing a dental bridge.
