OVERVIEW

Replacing missing teeth involves using dentures, bridges and implants to improve your appearance and dental health.

Many people living in the Telford area wanting to replace their missing teeth, it’s a conversation we have often So, what are your options if you have missing teeth?

There are 4 different ways to go about solving this particular problem:

  • Do nothing and live with the space
  • Dentures
  • Dental implants.
  • Dental bridges.

DO NOTHING

Whilst this is a very valid option in many instances there are a few problems associated with doing nothing and leaving the space, these problems are:

  • The bone where the tooth has been extracted will resorb overtime, this resorption makes the adjacent teeth look longer as the gum pulls away. This also means that if you wanted a dental implant later on in life there may not be enough bone, or the procedure may be more uncomfortable or costly if bone grafting is required.
  • The adjacent teeth on either side of the gap will have a tendency to fall into that space, potentially creating problems with your bite.
  • The opposing teeth on the opposite jaw will have a tendency to over erupt and drift down into the gap, potentially creating problems with your bite again.

FINANCE

0% Finance and Low cost loans are available. Affordable ways to pay for the treatment you want. Spread the cost of treatment over a period which suits you. A much more affordable alternative to credit cards or bank loans. Easy to repay by direct debit. Discuss your options with your treatment coordinator, Dentist.

BRIDGES

These are the final option that we offer from our dental practice in the heart of Euston, London. A dental bridge is made by gently reducing the teeth either side of the gap to accept a new Crown (or commonly called a ‘cap’). With a new crown on the teeth either side of the gap we can suspend a new tooth and join it to these two new crowns, creating a dental bridge made of three components all joined together – the new Crown on either side and the false tooth suspended in the middle.

Dental bridges have been made for many years and are an exceptionally reliable treatment option to replace missing teeth, their biggest drawback is the fact that potentially healthy teeth either side of the space has to be drilled down to accept the new supporting crowns or ‘caps’.

From a financial or cost point of view we also end up having to provide three new teeth, one for each side of space and the tooth to replace the missing one. This can have a cost implication which you may want to consider

 

IMPLANTS

Of all the options dental implants are generally the more preferred choice, for a number of reasons:

  • Dental implants support the bone and prevented resulting
  • Dental implants also do not impact the adjacent teeth, which means you retain more of your healthy dentition
  • Implants can last many years and so can often be the most cost effective option over a period of time.

Many patients around our London dentists have dental implant as they are considered an excellent solution to the problem of missing teeth. A dental implant is a titanium replacement for your natural tooth, with your mouth integrating completely with it you will find that, in most cases, a dental implant becomes an absolutely solid and permanent replacement for a missing tooth.

The surgery for a dental implant is simple and for the most part pain free. Any mild post operative pain can normally be treated with over the counter painkillers.

If you have missing teeth we would strongly urge you to consider dental implants as the preferred option for the reasons mentioned above.

DENTURES

Often these are the least preferred option for patients as they are removable and you need to be careful when you are eating. They are however an extremely good solution to the problem of missing teeth. Dentures tend to be the most cost-effective option and with modern alternatives can be made to look exceptionally good, most people would never know that you are wearing dentures!

On the subject of dentures to replace missing teeth we recommend that when you clean them you always do this over a sink half filled with water.
