What solutions to missing teeth in Burnham can you offer?

10/10/2019

We understand, here at the Dental Surgery Burnham, that it can be an alarming and worrying experience to lose a tooth. Perhaps your teeth have slowly deteriorated over time so that you have lost multiple teeth? We’re here to help! At the Dental Surgery Burnham we offer several solutions to missing teeth in Burnham, such as crowns, dentures, bridges and dental implants.

Which treatment is best for me?

A crown can be used to restore teeth that have broken or become weak. A crown is fitted over the remaining part of the tooth, giving it renewed strength and regaining the shape of a natural tooth. Crowns are the same colour as natural teeth so that it isn’t noticeable that your tooth has been repaired. If you have fillings that have become discoloured, then a crown could be the best treatment for you to regain a lovely natural smile. Crowns are also required when fitting bridges or dentures as they act as an anchor to secure bridges and dentures firmly in place.

Bridges are required if more extensive restoration is needed than a crown can provide. Bridges are made with a metal base in order to make them hardwearing and give them a solid structure, however, we can add porcelain to the base of your bridge to give it the appearance of a real tooth. Another advantage of a bridge is that they are strong and fixed into place and therefore will not come out when you are eating. It is important to maintain a good daily oral hygiene regime when wearing bridges, in order to ensure that your mouth remains plaque free and your breath fresh.

Another option to replace several missing teeth is to have a denture. A denture is made to fit comfortably over your gums and resembles the appearance of real teeth and gums in order to recreate the look of a natural smile. Dentures are made of a hard wearing substance which requires good oral hygiene to keep clean. We can recommend specialist brushes for dentures in order to keep your mouth healthy and fresh. A denture is able to be removed for cleaning so that you are able to keep it in good condition and avoid such problems as bad breath, gum disease and tooth decay. A denture can take some getting used to as can feel strange in your mouth at first when talking, eating and chewing. However, over time, you will get used to it and it should not cause a problem for you.

What about dental implants?

Dental implants are a modern and popular solution for replacing missing teeth. We simply place small metal screws, made of titanium, into your jaw in place of the missing tooth root. Once established, the bone gradually bonds with the implants, creating a stable and secure base for artificial teeth. We can then fix crowns, bridges and dentures onto the implants in order to create a stable and natural looking smile.

So, if you are looking for solutions to missing teeth in Burnham then get in touch with us here at the Dental Surgery Burnham and we will be happy to talk you through your options for regaining a natural, fully functioning smile.
