Tooth loss can occur at any age, whether due to accident, tooth decay or gum disease. Although there are many different causes of tooth loss the solution to the problem should always be to replace the missing tooth. A missing tooth gap can lead to a whole host of problems for patients in Chiswick and throughout the UK, including:
A dental bridge uses the surrounding teeth to stabilise a false tooth and hold it in place. A bridge can come in three forms:
1) Traditional bridge: This uses the teeth on either side of the gap to hold the false tooth in place. Crowns are added to the two teeth, which hold your new tooth in place.
2) Cantilever bridge: This type of bridge is used when only the teeth on one side of the tooth is healthy and so crowns are only added to the healthy side.
3) Maryland bridge: This form of bridge is used to replace the front teeth and uses metal bands attached to the surrounding teeth rather than crowns.
