At times teeth can be missing.
Whether it be genetically, as a result of damage/ trauma. Missing teeth lead to gaps, and crooked teeth. They can also exist in combination with a host of other problems.
The goal of orthodontic treatment is to holistically treat the bite so that at the end, gaps are closed and you have the best looking smile possible.
Wherever possible, a natural tooth is far better than an implant / bridge or fake tooth. It reduces the long term need for dental care. Left untreated, missing teeth can lead to the further movement of teeth, crookedness, and lopsidedness of teeth.
