Tooth Replacement

Unfortunately for a number of us our teeth do not last forever. There is a large portion of the population who will lose one or more teeth in their lifetime. This can be as a result of gum disease, injury, tooth decay, or a genetic condition.

The mouth is the first organ of the digestive system, and therefore missing teeth not only can cause dental health issues they can impact your health too.

Why is it important to replace a missing tooth or teeth?

  • Missing teeth can affect your speech
  • Missing teeth can impact the alignment of your teeth. This is the moving of your existing teeth into the gaps caused by missing teeth. This over time can cause further oral health problems
  • The ability to chew your food is decreased with missing teeth
  • It can cause food to trap in places, which increases your risk of dental decay for the remaining teeth.
  • If your missing multiple teeth, it can also cause problems with jaw instability.


Not only can a missing tooth be problematic for your oral health, it can change the appearance of your smile and can make you feel uncomfortable or self-conscious.

Dental Bridges

One way to replace a missing tooth is using a dental bridge. Here the dentist can close the gap -or bridge- the gap using a dental bridge or false tooth. It is held in place by the abutment teeth on either side of the gap.


If you’re feeling self-aware and unconformable about your appearance due to a missing tooth or teeth, dentures could be a very practical and affordable solution for you.
