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.
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 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 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.
In today’s world of dentistry, there are some extraordinary techniques and procedures to get you through difficult times, times such as tooth loss. This is a particularly uncomfortable period because aside from the shock, and the deflation of your ego, it also puts the future of your oral health at risk. It is best you do something about it in order to overcome these problems to get you up and smiling again, and a seasoned way to do this is to get a dental bridge put in. Once the damaged area has been assessed and measured up by your dentist, then the best choice of bridge for you can be made, and mouldings taken from this area can then be sent off for the bridge to be made. Depending on where the bridge needs to go will determine how it is set into place; the most common method is to cement the bridge in between two other teeth, though it can be set with wires and resins. However, many dentists prefer to double-up the bridge with a mini-dental implant as this offers tremendous strength and rigidity to the fitting.
