Missing teeth

Missing teeth occur either genetically or when a tooth is so broken down it is unsalvageable. In the back of the mouth missing teeth can lead to other problems, including an uneven bite, sideways tipping of adjacent teeth and food packing. All of these can lead to decay in otherwise healthy teeth. In the back of the mouth, a missing tooth can also create chewing and digestive system problems.

The gaps created by a missing tooth can be restored either by a bridge or an implant.

Bridges involve the crowning of adjacent teeth with a tooth between filling the gap.

An implant involves the insertion of a titanium post to hold the replacement tooth in the form of a crown. Where possible, implants are the favoured option today, as they allow the adjacent teeth to be left intact.
