    Default Replace tooth or be comfortable with your Boganinity?

    So say you had to have one of your molars extracted due to an unfortunate encounter with some popcorn...
    [Third from the back]

    Would you do everything in your power to find the $4000 odd to get an implant - or be comfortable with your future toothless bogan status?

    I had the same one removed a few years ago, think the same one, towards the back.

    I have a gap now but you wouldn't know. I don't walk around with my mouth open after all.

    So if that makes me a bogan so be it

    If you can afford it go for it but otherwise, no one will notice.

    If you could see it as I spoke or smiled then replace. There is also an impact that the matching tooth on the other jaw has nothing to chomp against. Actually, if I could afford it I would replace.

    I had a very back tooth removed some years ago and not replaced. Does that make me a closet bogan?

    I am not sure, probably leave it if it wasn't too noticeable. If it was right in sight I would replace.

    if it wasn't overly noticable eg like when I smiled I would leave it. Wow $4000 for one tooth. I would however look at going overseas and getting it fixed there (purely medical need no holiday thoughts at all )

    I would replace it. Even if it meant saving for a while.

    I have that same tooth removed on both sides and it's not noticeable. I wouldn't replace them (didn't even know you could!) and I especially wouldn't if they are $4000!

    ETA: if it impacts negatively on your life, replacing it sounds like a good option

    I would replace it. I have a massively wide smile and it would be really obvious on me haha.
