This treatment can be tailor made to suit many different cases, so we recommend that if you have lost a tooth, you speak with us about how this treatment can allow you to restore full functionality of your smile again.
Why does it really matter?
Replacing a tooth isn’t just about having an aesthetically pleasing smile. Your overall health and wellbeing is significantly improved when you ensure that your smile is fully functional. You will be able to eat properly and without limitations, something that you only really appreciate once you have lost this ability.
We do recommend replacing any missing teeth as quickly as possible so that your body does not become accustomed to negative impacts. Your teeth can twist and shift to compensate for missing teeth, making them less stable and more susceptible to damage.
The exposed gums tend to be more liable to damage, infection and pain, especially if you cut the area with hard or sharp foods. Generally, those who have missing teeth naturally begin to avoid certain kinds of foods that they find difficult to eat, which can lead to issues with their nutrition or enjoyment of eating.
By replacing your missing teeth in a permanent way such as this means you can ensure that your jawbone remains strong as well. Options such as bridges or even bridges which simply sit on the gums do not provide any stimulation to your jaw and therefore can result in the degradation of the bone structure within the jaw.
Over time, this can lead to premature aging where the face appears sunken and drawn or even stability issues with other teeth. If you are a healthy candidate for replacing your teeth with implants, then the benefits really are worth the investment.
We would like to discuss your options with you openly and candidly so that you can weigh up the advantages and disadvantages for your own personal situation. This way, you can decide for yourself, being well informed and in control whether replacing your teeth will be beneficial for you in the short and long term.
