Missing Teeth Problems
Most patients with missing teeth and dentures have discomfort eating and are less able to chew hard foods. This can have a significant impact on health and confidence.
Many denture patients have trouble speaking with their denture. Some avoid laughing, talking and even eating in public for fear that their denture may slip.
Higher Risk Of Further Tooth Loss
where a tooth is lost, the remaining teeth are at higher risk of failure than before due to extra loading during chewing. If a partial denture is worn, the adjacent teeth are at higher risk of tooth decay and gum disease. Where a bridge replaces missing teeth, the adjacent teeth are sometimes ground down to fit the bridge, then these teeth are at a higher risk of nerve damage and failure too.
Premature Ageing Of The Face
Where teeth have been lost, there is accelerated bone loss which can result in premature ageing as facial bone volume is reduced.
The Solution - Dental Implants
A dental implant is a small but very strong post made from titanium. Under local anaesthetic, it is inserted into the jaw bone in place of the missing tooth root and acts as a support for the tooth. This is a long-term, state of the art technique.
