Options for missing teeth

– Dentures

There are few available dental implant treatments designed to replace a missing tooth. Firstly a Removable Denture is commonly used however these are usually uncomfortable and move while eating or talking. Dentures commonly cause sores and ulcers if they are ill-fitting. For this reason removable dentures tend be unpopular with patients. There are several million people in the UK that have removable dentures today. Removable dentures are usually simple and inexpensive to make.

– Bridges

Dental bridges can also be used to replace missing teeth. Unlike dentures fixed bridges are attached to the adjacent teeth and provide a fixed tooth/teeth to function with. Dental bridges are aesthetic and were the preferred solution for replacing missing teeth before dental implants became so popular. Dental bridges do require sound teeth that are strong enough to support the replacement tooth. If there are no such teeth adjacent to the space then a bridge will not be possible. The disadvantage with bridge work is that it requires the preparation of the adjacent teeth, this causes long term damage to these teeth.
