Whether you’ve lost a tooth through infection or gum disease, had teeth knocked out in an accident or have a large number of missing teeth, there are some amazing solutions out there and we highly recommend considering tooth replacement treatment. Gaps in the smile can contribute to an elevated risk of dental health problems, a lack of confidence, issues related to speech and inability to chew food properly. If you have missing teeth, why not call us and find out more about our incredible tooth replacement treatments?
Our treatment options for missing teeth include:
- Dentures: dentures are sets of prosthetic teeth. They are custom-designed for the individual and held in place by the suction of the gums. They look like natural teeth and enable you to eat and speak with confidence. We use the finest materials to create high quality dentures and we also offer implant-retained dentures for those looking for improved stability. This option relates to dentures anchored by dental implants.
- Dental bridges: bridges are a popular option for patients who have a single missing tooth. They are most commonly made from a false tooth, which is supported on either side by a dental crown. Bridge treatment is simple and painless and you can choose from a range of materials, all of which create a very natural look. We can usually complete treatment in two sessions and bridges should last up to 15 years.
- Dental implants: implants are an option for patients with single or multiple missing teeth. Treatment involves placing a titanium implant into a small opening in the jaw bone and then connecting a crown, bridge or denture once the implant has integrated into the bone tissue (usually three to eight months later). Implants last for many years and they give you the same level of functionality as healthy, strong natural teeth.
