If you have lost one or more of your natural teeth, you should come in for a consultation at our Harley Street practice. Your dentist will carefully examine you and will listen to your concerns, wants and needs, before recommending the best tooth replacement options.

Why you should replace missing teeth

A dentist will always recommend replacing missing teeth. As well as the obvious concern about the aesthetic appearance of your smile, missing teeth can also cause health problems. Remaining teeth have a tendency to move into any gaps, becoming crooked and thus harder to clean in the process, which increases your chances of tooth decay, gum disease and ultimately further tooth loss.

Depending on how many teeth are missing, you may find your ability to eat a healthy and balanced diet affected, and can also experience problems with speech. At our Harley Street clinic we see patients who have lost teeth for all manner of reasons, from gum disease and tooth decay to accident and injury.

The expert team at our Harley Street clinic can help whatever has caused you to lose a tooth or teeth – so please do book an appointment with us to find out what your options are, and what treatment entails.
