Why should I replace a missing tooth?

Restored Function

A missing tooth can impair your ability to chew and speak properly. By replacing missing teeth, you can regain normal functionality and enjoy a complete set of teeth.

Bite Alignment

Gaps left by missing teeth can cause adjacent teeth to shift into the space. This can lead to misalignment and issues like headaches, uneven wear and food trapping in your teeth.

Jawbone Preservation

When a tooth is lost, the underlying jawbone can start to deteriorate without the stimulation provided by the tooth root.

Aesthetics

Missing teeth can affect the appearance of your smile and create a sunken facial appearance. Replacing a missing tooth can improve your self-confidence and your smile.

What options are there for missing teeth?

Dentures

Dentures provide an affordable solution for replacing missing teeth and surrounding tissues. They are a removable device that helps you regain your smile and improve your chewing function. They are custom-made to fit the individual’s mouth and can be either full dentures, used when all teeth are missing, or partial dentures, used when some natural teeth remain.

Bridges

Dental bridges mimic multiple teeth, “bridging” the space between the remaining teeth. They are a reliable way of restoring both the functionality and appearance of the patient’s smile. The bridge is permanently secured in the mouth using dental crowns on natural teeth or dental implants at each gap end.

Implants

Dental implants can replace a single tooth, multiple teeth, or even all the teeth along your jawline. They have become a reliable and sought-after solution for individuals seeking a permanent and functional tooth replacement. Dental implants are titanium posts surgically placed into the jawbone to serve as artificial tooth roots, providing a sturdy foundation for replacement teeth.

What option is right for me?

Everyone’s dental situation is unique, so we recommend that you consult a dentist to assess your needs. The best option for replacing a missing tooth varies depending on factors such as oral health, jawbone condition, and personal preferences. A dentist will consider your situation and advise the most suitable treatment for your case.

On this occasion the dentist Natalie was very good, explained clearly why specialist surgery was required. The standout however, was Bec the admin. Officer, who went over and above to get me an urgent appt. the next day. She was amazing & I very much appreciated her assistance.

I've just called to make an appoint with Dr Kapil and have learnt he is no longer doing general dental work. Sadly after 20 years I need to find a new dentist. He will be hard to replace....
