Do you have missing teeth? Are you embarrassed to smile? Is eating difficult or uncomfortable?
You may be missing teeth because of injury, gum disease, tooth decay, age or other reasons. Tooth loss creates a range of problems for patients from emotional and social concerns to sometimes serious medical conditions.
Once you have lost a tooth, the bone begins to deteriorate. If missing teeth aren’t replaced quickly, the bone will continue to deteriorate making replacement options more and more difficult.
There are many options for replacing missing teeth:
Dental Implants: a permanent solution for tooth loss, dental implants have a 95% success rate. Dental implants are virtually indistinguishable from your natural teeth.
Dentures and Partial Dentures: an excellent solution, dentures and partials have been used for centuries to replace missing teeth. Advances in dental materials make today’s dentures look and feel more like natural teeth than ever before.
Dental Bridges: used to replace one or more missing teeth, dental bridges are permanently anchored to your neighbouring teeth.
