Why you should find solutions to missing teeth

05/10/2021

Solutions to missing teeth Burnham help to address a range of challenges patients experience when they lose natural teeth. An incomplete dental arch calls into question the proper mouth function, as well as the oral health of patients. These dangers are often overlooked by patients who are mainly concerned with the loss in dental aesthetics when teeth are lost.

While it is always important to look after the appearance of one’s smile, there are certain implications we would like patients not to ignore – implications that can directly impact their quality of life. Without a full dental arch, patients will find that they experience difficulties in masticatory function (biting and chewing may be made more difficult), there may be speech impediments, oral hygiene maintenance issues may arise and then there is the awkwardness when engaging with others. It is the latter negative that can be felt in all areas of one’s life from personal to professional relationships.

As a reputable dental practice, we at Dental Surgery Burnham are devoted to providing practical solutions to missing teeth Burnham, so that patients can avoid these negative consequences and live the life they deserve.

The range of solutions to missing teeth Burnham

At our dental practice, we make available a number of worthwhile replacement teeth appliances that cater to different patient needs. We offer:

  • Dental implants
  • Dentures
  • Denture stabilisation
  • Bridges

Each of these appliances offers its own sets of pros and cons, and a patient will need to factor in each of these considerations carefully before deciding on which restoration would be most suitable. During the consultation appointment our dental practitioner, who has extensive experience in missing teeth replacement solutions, will go over those appliances that a patient is suitable to use whilst also addressing their needs.

While many patients opt for missing teeth solutions to save the look of their smiles, there are plenty more reasons why we believe patients who have lost natural teeth need to replenish them.

How replacement teeth can benefit you

Patients will need replacement teeth to restore overall mouth function. In the absence of a full set of teeth, a patient will rely on existing teeth to grind down food into digestible pieces which can put undue pressure on them. This may increase the risk of these teeth becoming worn and vulnerable to being damaged.

Replacement teeth can help the patient protect gum and jawbone health. Implant dentistry has been found to have incredible benefits that protect mouth structures such as gums and improve bone density. Because dental implants feature a design that mirrors natural teeth, they offer the same functions of natural teeth. Gum health is preserved as there are no empty sockets where bad bacteria can pile up and the jawbone continues to receive the stimulation it needs (provided by the metal root of the implant) to keep bone density strong.

Have you lost natural teeth and need to know which replacement dental appliance is best for your situation? Our dental practitioner can present all of your options in a professional consultation at Dental Surgery Burnham. Give our front desk team a call so that we can find a date and time that suit you best.
