Ask any dentist and they will always recommend you replace any missing teeth. At Harley Street Dental Clinic we offer a number of tooth-replacement options, and when you come in for a consultation your clinician will talk you through all the relevant treatments, so that you can make an informed choice.
Why you should replace missing teeth
Missing teeth can make you self-conscious about smiling, but the reasons to replace them are more than just cosmetic. Even one missing tooth puts extra strain on your remaining teeth, making them more prone to premature wear and tear. Your remaining teeth are also highly likely to move into any gaps, becoming harder to keep clean in the process.
What your dentist can do
At Harley Street Dental Clinic we have a unique collection of specialists who can offer a wide range of treatments. When you first come in for a consultation with a dentist, they will conduct a thorough clinical examination and will check your dental health and the condition of your remaining teeth before recommending tooth replacement options.
If your tooth loss has been caused by decay or gum disease, your dentist will include remedies for these conditions in your treatment plan. Our aim at our Harley Street clinic is to restore you to full dental health, and to furnish you with the information and techniques to maintain it for life.
How your Harley Street dentist can replace your missing teeth
Bridges can replace one or a few adjacent teeth. They can be supported by surrounding teeth, or by dental implants.
We offer a number of denture options at our Harley Street clinic. They may be removable, or affixed to dental implants.
Dental implants enable your dentist to replace the roots of your teeth. Permanently attached to your jaw, they can support a bridge, dentures, or a crown.
