If you lose a tooth, there are various options available to you; we always recommend replacing missing teeth because gaps in your smile can contribute to oral health problems, as well as affecting the way your smile looks.
It is important to replace missing teeth for a number of reasons; firstly, gaps in your teeth affect the aesthetic of your smile, which can also have an impact on your confidence and self-esteem. It is also common for missing teeth to affect speech and your ability to chew food properly and missing teeth can also cause the remaining teeth to start to move out of position, which can make brushing difficult, which increases the risk of decay and gum disease. Replacing missing teeth enables you to enjoy a full range of functions, as well as a healthy looking, attractive smile.
If you lose a single tooth, either through injury, trauma or decay, dental implants are a great option. Dental implants are small titanium screw-like dental devices, which are used to replace the root of the missing tooth; the implant is placed in a socket in the jaw bone and then left to integrate into the bone. It is possible to attach the implant to a dental bridge, denture or crown in order to replace any number of missing teeth; in the case of a single missing tooth, the implant is attached to a new dental crown.
Once the crown has been attached, the tooth will look exactly like a natural tooth; the crown will be matched to the colour of the natural teeth and it will also function in the same way as your other teeth.
Single implants are a popular choice for younger patients who have lost a tooth as a result of a sports injury or accident; they are the best option in this case because they are designed to last for many years and they provide the best aesthetics.
