Replacement Services


Missing teeth need replacement for several reasons like chewing, proper speech and appearance. Below are illustrations which
show the damage that happens when missing/extracted teeth are not replaced. In addition to the
conditions illustrated, the face appears to
sag when all the teeth are missing.




Drawbacks Of Not Replacing Missing Teeth:

There are several ways to replace missing teeth

Dental Implants:


Implants are one way of replacing missing teeth. Dental implants are titanium screws which are inserted surgically into the jaw bone. Teeth, in the form of a crown, bridge or denture are then attached to the implant.

    Benefits:
  • Enhance the ability to eat and speak properly
  • Replaces only the missing teeth and maintains the bone height
  • If a denture is necessary, implants greatly improve stability.
  • bridgesOne needs to have healthy gums and enough jawbone for the implant to be placed, although techniques are available to add additional bone if needed. Good oral hygiene and regular visits to the dentist help in the longevity of this treatment as implants are prone to all dental diseases.

Bridges:


A dental bridge is used to replace a missing tooth or multiple missing teeth. The procedure involves fixing a false tooth in place of the missing tooth by taking support of the teeth present on either side. The bridge is fixed in place using dental cement.

Bridges are made of metal, porcelain, porcelain fused to metal or sometimes just porcelain and ceramics. The All-Ceramic bridges are more aesthetic and come with a warranty.

    Benefits:

  • A bridge lets you almost forget that you have missing teeth
  • Improves the way you look, bite, chew and speak
  • The teeth can be matched to the colour of your own teeth.
  • A bridge can last many years, if kept clean and if there is no accidental damage.


Denture:


Full or partial dentures are removable replacements for lost teeth. Dentures are designed to look and function like your natural teeth, providing a visually natural solution to missing teeth.

Complete dentures replace all teeth .Partial dentures are used where only a few teeth are missing. They are held in place by natural suction to the gum, clasps, fixatives can also be used or the dentures can be attached to dental or mini implants

“Flexible denture” options are also available. They do not have metal components/clasps.

Dentures must be kept clean and removed at night to give your gums a rest. As with teeth, regular check-ups with the dentist are recommended. If dentures become stained they need to be professionally cleaned.

    Benefits:
  • Dentures can be fitted immediately after teeth have been taken out so that nobody will know that you have had a tooth out.
  • Dentures will never feel like your own teeth and it can take time to get used to them. Decreased levels of the bony ridge can negatively affect the stability of dentures, especially in the lower jaw.
