Alternative Solutions for Missing Teeth

A missing tooth / teeth can be caused by multiple things. An accident, a genetic condition, gum disease etc. It has probably one of the biggest impacts on self-confidence and we’ve seen many cases of customers who have become socially and emotionally withdrawn as a result. Especially so if they have a missing front tooth which is most noticeable.

There are a number of options to replace missing teeth which we will cover below.

Options for missing teeth

Partial dentures - Often only covering where a single tooth used to be, the partial denture will provide a removable replacement for missing teeth. A partial denture will be clipped into your dental arch and will rest upon the palette of your mouth. This alternative to tooth loss can cost around £300-£5,000.

Complete dentures - A complete denture is required when ALL teeth are missing, and this is why they cost more - up to £10,000

Tooth implants - The procedure of having a dental implant will involve invasive surgery in which metal posts are fused to your jaw bone. This requires drilling into the jaw bone to attach the metal posts, then mounting a false tooth on top of the screw. The cost can be up to £1,000 per tooth.

Fixed Bridge - A dental bridge will cover the gap where your tooth once was by receiving support from your surrounding natural teeth. Instead of the fake tooth being inserted through your gum, one or more of your surrounding teeth will have to host a dental cost which will then attach to your bridged tooth. To apply a crown, the dentist will need to sand down the natural tooth to enable it to host a crown.

How to prevent further missing teeth

There can be various reasons as to why you may suffer from tooth loss but there are plenty of measures you can take when preventing tooth loss and trying to keep your smile intact.

Mouth guards - With contact sports such as hockey, rugby and football, it is important to protect your teeth with a mouth guard. Some are better than others, so make sure you look around before rushing your purchase. After all, your teeth are important!

Oral Hygiene - Your oral health can play a huge part in maintaining your teeth. Brushing and flossing your teeth twice a day will help prevent diseases such as periodontal disease (gum disease). Regular check ups with the dentist can help fight off such diseases.

Eating Habits - Avoiding sugary foods and drinks will help keep your teeth strong and cavity free. If sugar has rotten your tooth away, it will naturally fall away or may have to be removed by a dentist in order to keep the rest of your smile healthy.
