Missing Teeth?

Missing teeth can be quite bothersome.

Not replacing them can cause a gradual loss of function and can effect a person’s self esteem. Over time missing teeth may also result in*:

  • Drifting of adjacent or opposing teeth causing gaps
  • Resorption of bone that originally covered the tooth root.
  • Severe loss of bone may result in loss of support of the region around the mouth, drooping of the corners of the lips.
  • Difficulty in chewing
  • Changes in the ‘bite’
  • Problems in the jaw joint
  • Fracture or Wearing down of remaining teeth

*The occurrence and severity sometimes depends on the number of missing teeth and the length of time the teeth are missing.

There is no right or wrong way of replacing teeth. Different options suit different individuals. Here at High Street Dental Practice we try to understand your needs and circumstances to help YOU decide. Some of the options have been briefly discussed below.

Dentures

Dentures

Dentures are removable false teeth and can be used to replace some or all your missing teeth. Your dentures will be made to fig snugly on your gums and you can remove it for cleaning. Some individuals can take a bit of time to get used to wearing dentures but rest assured we are here to help you through the process and show you how to best take care of them.

Dental Bridges

Dental Bridges

A dental bridge bridges the gap between two teeth and unlike a denture is fixed. They can come in a variety of materials. Porcelain can be added so that your bridge can imitate your existing teeth.

Dental Implants

Dental Implants

Dental implants offer a good alternative to dental bridges and are suitable for replacing a lost single tooth, several teeth or all your teeth. They look natural and are becoming an increasingly popular way of replacing missing teeth. Guided ‘key-hole’ implant placement is a cost effective way of effortless implant placement.
