Bicuspid Extractions: No, once dental bicuspids are removed that is a permanent situation. Replacements can be by dental implant insertion and restoration.

Not possible: once teeth are removed, they are gone. For your information, extracting teeth would only be recommended if crowding is a major problem.

Dr. John Thaler

Prosthodontist: See a Prosthodontist - specialist in reconstruction - first for evaluation and options. They will refer you as needed to achieve your goal. Typically if you are missing teeth in a selected area, especially if there are teeth on both sides, implants are the treatment of choice. Good Luck.

Premolar: The extraction of a premolar should not cause any TMJ issues... you most probably developed the problem due to other causes. An examination by a local dentist with knowledge regarding TMJ causes and treatment will shed some light on how to treat your condition. All the best...
