The primary options for replacing missing teeth are: dental bridges, implants and dentures. Each type of treatment has its own advantages. Dr. Ian Buckle is one of the leading dentists in the UK for restorative and cosmetic dentistry. He can help you choose which treatment is right for you. Dr. Buckle is also the Clinical Director of the Dawson Academy UK, which is a post graduate dental education facility. Dentists come from around the world to train with Dr. Buckle on the foundations of Complete Dentistry.
One of the simplest and most affordable solutions for a missing tooth is a dental bridge. We can create a fixed dental bridge, which will be anchored by the teeth adjacent to the missing tooth. The dental bridge can be secured with dental crowns and/or dental implants.
Dental implants are an ideal tooth replacement solution. Replacing the actual root of the tooth, the dental implant will become fully integrated with the bone to replace both the function and aesthetics of the missing tooth or teeth.
Dental implants are generally the most expensive replacement option, but they also require the least maintenance. Not all patients qualify for dental implants. The location of the missing tooth as well as the overall health of the patient and bone structure will be evaluated before the dentist recommends treatment.
A denture is used when a person is missing all of their upper or lower teeth. The denture can either be removable or secured using dental implants. Implant secured dentures, also known as “All on Four” or “Teeth in a Day” offer improved stability, comfort and permit a healthier diet.
