What are the benefits to finding solutions to missing teeth

01/10/2021

A serious dental condition that many patients do not take as seriously as they should is missing teeth. It is an unfortunate but far from uncommon experience for adults to lose at least one of their natural teeth throughout their lifetimes.Blog

Patients lose natural teeth due to decay, damage, untreated gum disease, jawbone deterioration and trauma to the face. While some patients look for solutions to missing teeth Burnham to protect the aesthetic value of their smiles, many leave the empty dental sockets unfilled, not realising the detrimental consequences that will follow in the future.

At Dental Surgery Burnham, we give patients access to viable solutions to missing teeth Burnham so that patients can once again enjoy the quality of life that only a full dental arch can provide.

Here, we take a look at some of the arguments in favour of seeking solutions to missing teeth Burnham.

Rewards of opting for replacement teeth

Replacement teeth work to improve the function of the mouth

If a tooth is lost, the patient will invariably experience the effects of the loss of support from a full set of teeth. The practical implications include challenges with biting and chewing functionalities, speech impediments, change in face shape (happens when too many teeth are absent to provide stimulation to the jaw) and a ruined smile. Finding a solution for replacement teeth can help patients avoid all these undesirable consequences.

Replacement teeth can give patients back their confidence

Being embarrassed about having missing teeth can be extremely punishing to a patient’s social and professional life. One needs to be confident to start and maintain relationships with others, and this level of confidence is often missing in those suffering from tooth loss. By choosing a suitable replacement solution, patients can look forward to more fulfilling relationships and a brighter career path.

Replacement teeth can protect oral structures

Similar to dental implants, teeth-replacement solutions help protect the integrity of oral structures including the remaining natural teeth, gums and jawbone. The adverse implications of losing teeth and not replacing them are that it triggers a process that puts the health of nearby teeth at risk, raises the chance of gum disease and causes the jawbone to lose its density.

Types of solutions to missing teeth

There are a number of different teeth-replacement devices a patient can choose from. At our dental clinic, we offer both traditional and modern solutions, including bridges, dentures, dental implants and denture stabilisation treatment plans.

Bridges are a good dental solution for teeth that have been damaged and when dental crowns are not a viable option. Dentures are suitable for patients with many or all of their natural teeth missing. Over time, if these devices become loose, we can provide dental stabilisation. Finally, a relatively new solution is dental implants, which mirrors the exact look of natural teeth.

Each type of teeth-replacement appliance carries a specific set of features that suit different needs. Our experienced dental practitioner can help guide patients to the most suitable choice, according to the patient’s requirements and preferences. Some options may not be suitable for all patients, which is why we recommend that they arrange a consultation so that we can determine which solution is right for them. To set up a consultation, please reach out to our reception desk team at Dental Surgery Burnham.
