Fill In The Gaps

Fill In The Gaps

A lost tooth can significantly alter the appearance of your smile. They can create a variety of issues, depending on whether it is the consequence of gum disease, accident, serious dental decay, or a hereditary disorder. Regardless of how a tooth is lost, it can have a detrimental influence on the alignment of your teeth over time and create a variety of difficulties if it is not replaced.

The worth of your teeth is sometimes not recognised until they are lost, and teeth, regrettably, do not live forever. Even a single tooth loss can have a detrimental influence on your dental health and self-esteem. A missing tooth or teeth can also impair your speech, ability to chew food, the integrity of your jawbone, and cause your teeth to slowly move into some of the empty spots.

Fortunately, there are a variety of good solutions for replacing your missing tooth or teeth and restoring your dazzling smile.

Dental Bridges:

If you are missing one or more teeth, a dental bridge is usually used to fill the gap. Fixed bridges are attached to neighbouring teeth, whether natural or implanted, on each side of the missing tooth. Dental bridges can enhance the aesthetics, shape, alignment, and dental occlusion of a tooth in addition to reinforcing it (bite). Missing teeth can cause remaining teeth to move, leading to a crooked bite. This is something that bridges can assist with.

Benefits include:

  • A tooth-supported bridge has the same natural appearance and feels like a dental implant.
  • When compared to dental implants, a tooth-supported bridge is a more cost-effective solution.
  • Because surgery is not necessary, the procedure is less intrusive.

Dental Implants:

Dental implants are one of the most popular tooth replacement options. They are a very dependable tooth replacement option that looks and feels just like a natural tooth. If you need to replace a single tooth or many teeth in various regions, dental implants are a permanent option. Dental implants, if properly cared for, can last a lifetime.

The procedure for installing a dental implant can be time-consuming. It starts with the root of your tooth being replaced by metal screws, which will serve as an anchor for the fake teeth that will be put on top. After the screws are in place, you must wait a few months for the implant to heal, during which time the implant will become securely bonded to your jawbone. A dental crown will be put on top of the implant when it has healed fully.

Benefits include:

  • They are one of the most successful ways to replace teeth that have been lost.
  • Because your neighbouring teeth are not involved, your adjacent teeth are unaffected.
  • They are a permanent, lifetime replacement that does not need to be checked on a regular basis.

Full Arch Implant Retained Dentures:

Full arch dental implants make extensive use of implants. Per row of teeth, four to eight implants are fused into your gums. Your dentist will attach a pair of replacement teeth to the implant anchors after they have healed. You have several options for replacing teeth, such as a dental bridge or custom-made dentures. For each row of teeth, dentists employ four dental implants. To support the crowns, the implants are angled. The implants are subsequently fitted with replacement teeth.

  • They have a natural appearance.
  • A cost-effective option for restoring many lost teeth in a row.
