Replacing missing teeth is important for good oral health, eating, speaking and feeling good about your smile.

Missing teeth can affect your quality of life by making eating and speech more difficult. Gaps in your teeth also can make you self-conscious about your smile as well as potentially affecting your oral health.

What can happen if missing teeth are not replaced?

  • increased risk of gum disease
  • oral hygiene problems
  • reduction of biting force
  • increased stress on other teeth which may then be weakened
  • difficulty chewing and eating which may limit the food you can comfortably eat

Replacing teeth as soon as possible after their loss is the most effective way to prevent the remaining adjacent teeth tilting or moving towards the empty space.

What are the options for replacing missing teeth?

There are a number of treatment options that can potentially replace missing teeth, including a dental bridge, dentures and dental implants.

A Bridge – A dental bridge is a fixed replacement for missing teeth. A bridge is supported between two dental crowns bonded to healthy teeth on either side of the gap.

Dentures – Removable complete or partial dentures can maintain your bite and restore your smile when several or a row of teeth are missing.

Dental ImplantsDental implants are a long-lasting option to replace missing teeth when your gums and jawbone are healthy. A prosthetic tooth is fitted over the implant which acts as a replacement tooth root.

The team at Chelmer Village Dental will advise you on the most appropriate treatment, depending on the number of missing teeth and the condition of your gums and jawbone.
