In brief: A few

If i understood your question well: 1.
Extracting a tooth is losing a tooth and depending on its location it causes esthetic or functional problems. Functional is not being able to chew well. 2. When you lose opposing or adjacent tooth other teeth can shift and move due to lack of contact. 3. Extracting a tooth vs saving it with root canal if later you want to place implant is more costly sometim.

Absolutely. If the tooth can be saved it should be. Tooth replacement should also take place if it can be saved. See a dentist

In brief: Tooth loss

If you do not replace extracted tooth it may lead to loose adjacent teeth.
Also it can cause a bone loss.
