What is the Best Way to Replace a Tooth?

Today, there are some really impressive treatments around to replace missing teeth, so if you have a missing tooth, there’s no need to panic. At Clifton Dental Studio we understand what a difference a healthy smile makes and we are delighted to offer a range of treatment options for patients who have lost teeth through injury, decay, gum disease or trauma.

Our treatment choices include dental bridges, dentures and dental implants.

Bridges

Dental bridges are an easy, affordable and effective solution for lost teeth and they are a great choice for patients who have a single lost tooth or a small number of missing teeth. A traditional fixed dental bridge is made up of a false tooth anchored on either side by a crown. Bridges can be made from ceramics for a natural aesthetic and they should last up to 15 years, provided they are well cared-for. Treatment usually involves 2-3 sessions and takes 2-3 weeks.

Dentures

Dentures are sets of false teeth designed to look and function like natural teeth. We offer partial and complete dentures made from the finest quality materials to produce durable dentures that look healthy and bright. Dentures are suitable for patients with multiple missing teeth and they are bespoke. Denture treatment is swift and painless and once you have your dentures, we will check the fit regularly to prevent any irritation.

Dental Implants

Dental implants are a long-term option for tooth loss and they offer many benefits including enhanced functionality, natural aesthetics and easy maintenance. The treatment process is more invasive than other treatments and treatment time is much longer. However, once implants are in place, they are very easy to care for and they last for many years.

Our expert dentists will be happy to weigh up the options with you and discuss the pros and cons. Every patient is different and what is best for one client may not be ideal for another. When you have a consultation, we can assess your needs and ascertain your treatment preferences and expectations and then provide you with the information you need to help you make a decision.
