If you lose a tooth and you never get it replaced, other than for aesthetics.. Why do you need to replace it?

In brief: Teeth shift

When you lose a tooth, there is room for all the other teeth to shift around.
This is not only a problem aesthetically, but it can create problems for your bite overall, which can lead to wear problems on your teeth and even to headaches.
