The goal of modern dentistry is for every patient to keep all their teeth for a lifetime. A missing tooth is more than a gap in your smile. It can have serious oral health and psychological effects.

What options are available to replace a missing tooth?

There are several options available for replacing a missing tooth:

How do I know which option is best?

By scheduling a consultation visit with your dentist, you can determine what option will be best for your unique situation. Factors include cost, condition of your jawbone, any infections present or chronic conditions, and your personal preference.

If my missing tooth doesn’t bother me, should I get it replaced?

If you are missing teeth it is very important you look into your options for tooth replacement as soon as possible. The longer you wait the worse your problems with bone loss and other consequences could be;

  • Your risk of gum disease increases as food particles can become trapped in the gap created between your teeth.
  • Your quality of life could be adversely impacted because you may avoid social activities.
  • Your diet may be compromised if it is more challenging for you to chew certain foods.
  • Your existing teeth may begin to shift affecting your bite and speech, and your jaw joint.
  • The jawbone in the socket of the missing tooth loses volume, and options like dental implants may no longer be viable.

If you are missing teeth, and want to preserve your smile, contact us on 01892 522 297 or book your appointment online today.
