Replacing missing teeth can restore your smile, make eating more comfortable and prevent further dental issues.

When you lose one or more teeth, eating and speaking can be more difficult and potentially cause you to become self-conscious about your smile.  In addition, the gaps left by missing teeth can increase the risks of oral health problems such as:

  • Damage to other teeth due to increased stress.
  • Adjacent teeth tilting or moving into the space.
  • Reduction of overall biting force.
  • Uncomfortable eating and difficulty chewing.
  • Increased risk of gum disease.
  • Oral hygiene issues.

Replacing Missing teeth with appropriate dental treatment can reduce these potential issues and restore your smile. Your dentist will always recommend the tooth replacement treatment that’s right for you, as soon as possible after losing them.  The treatment will depend on the number and position of missing teeth as well as the health of your gums and jawbone.

Treatments to replace missing teeth can include:

A Dental Bridge
A dental bridge replaces one or more missing teeth. A bridge is held in place by crowns placed over healthy teeth, adjacent to the gap left by the missing tooth or teeth.

Removable partial or full dentures (false teeth), can replace several or a whole set of upper or lower teeth to give you a new smile and improve eating function and comfort.

Dental implants
Dental implants are titanium inserts that are permanently fixed into the jawbone to act as a permanent replacement tooth root. A dental crown is fixed to the insert, having almost exactly the same shape and aspect as the missing tooth.  Dental implants can be a long-lasting tooth replacement option to replace missing teeth if your gums and jawbone are healthy.  Dental implants can also be used to support a full set of implant retained dentures.
