Replace Missing Teeth
Losing a tooth can also cause other teeth to move or tilt, which can affect your bite and put excess force on other teeth.
Benefits to Replacing Missing Teeth
✓ Maintain function so you can enjoy eating
✓ Keep your smile looking great
✓ Prevent long term effects like tooth movement and bone loss.
There are three ways to replace missing teeth – dentures, bridges and implants.
Dentures replace missing teeth. They are worn during the day and removed at night and for cleaning. If your dentures are ill-fitting or you would prefer to have a fixed option which you do not need to remove, we can consider a bridge or implant.
A bridge is a fixed replacement option, where a false tooth is supported by one or two of your natural teeth. This may require removal of some healthy tooth structure.
An implant is a fixed option which does not cause any damage to your natural teeth.
