My husband is missing all his molars on the upper left. He only has the premolars. He doesn’t want implants and eats just fine. The bone has shrunk down but it isn’t noticeable at all from the outside. He has had them out for about eight years now.
I have my upper second molar missing (and no wisdom teeth). I had a set of premolars extracted as a teen for braces so all I have on that side, in the back, is a premolar and my first molar. It has been that way for two years now and it does feel uneven to me, so I know what you are talking about.

Have you discussed your worries with your dentist? They may be able to tell you what may or may not happen. Also, would implants be the only option to replace them? These things are very individual, so getting an opinion suited to your situation may be a good idea.
