What are The Options for Replacing Teeth?

Tooth loss is not uncommon, whether teeth are lost due to not being looked after properly, one off accidents and impacts, or any other reason, losing a tooth can be problematic and even a little traumatic.

But what options do you have once your tooth has been lost or removed?

Read Jones Dental Care’s latest blog post to find out.

You Can Do Nothing  

The first option is possibly the most obvious but least appealing, doing nothing and simply leaving your mouth as it is with the tooth missing is always an option.

There is a huge aesthetic draw back to this, but if you simply do not mind having a tooth missing then the choice is entirely up to you.

There are however some genuine problems that can arise from having a missing tooth. Not being able to eat at the site where the tooth once was with any form of pressure has the potential to weaken your jaw’s muscle and bone density in that area.

Speak to your Warrington dentist for further advice about whether you can afford to leave your missing tooth untreated.

Bridgework

Possibly the most traditional replacement for a lost tooth, bridgework involves the filing down of the two teeth next to the missing site. An artificial ‘bridge’ is then attached to fill in the gap and provide a new cosmetic tooth.

The problem with bridgework is that it requires to the surrounding two teeth to be filed down and compromised so substantially that in some cases patients have had to have all three of the teeth removes eventually, thus completely compromising their biting ability on one side.

Speak to your Warrington dentist about the option of bridgework for your missing tooth.

Dental Implants

Dental implants can be used to fill the gap where a tooth ponce was. By inserting a metal post (quite often titanium), dentists have the ability to attach a brand new artificial tooth to the post.

Dental implants are a great choice for those that want to fill the gap as they protect your jaw by allowing you to chew like you once did.

Speak to your Warrington dentist about dental implants and how they can work for you.

Removable Bridge

As the name suggests, this is essentially bridgework that is removable. Removable bridgework is quite a traditional approach and not often still used, but for some it is still the best option.

This method still protects against the loss in jaw functions and bite. Speak to your Warrington dentist about removable bridge work.
