Possible Dental Treatments Of Missing Teeth

Missing teeth can impact appearance in a negative way. There can be many causes of missing teeth such as gum infection, tooth decay, injury, or cavities. The missing teeth come with many problems such as chewing, pronouncing words, being prone to gum diseases, changing the shape of your face, bone loss, and the integrity of the jawbone. In addition to this missing teeth also impact your smile, lower your confidence and self-esteem, change your appearance, and maybe you have to avoid eating some food. Dentists offer a number of solutions to replace missing teeth.

Solution Provided By Private Dentist Basingstoke For Missing Teeth:


A denture is an appliance that provides a removable replacement for missing teeth and surrounding tissues. There are two types of dentures namely partial dentures and complete dentures. A complete denture is used by patients when all the teeth are missing or broken. On the other hand, a partial denture is used when some teeth are missing. Patients generally feel uncomfortable in the beginning due to its fitting. In many cases, patients have to visit the dentist often till denture fits their mouth. It should be cleaned by brush or you can take out it from your mouth while you sleep and put it in the cleansing liquid. Dentures are pocket-friendly and affordable solutions to missing teeth.

Dental Implants:

A dental implant is a process of replacing a missing tooth by inserting an artificial tooth into the jawbone. It is a permanent solution and can easily last for a lifetime. The implant is made from titanium that is inserted into the jawbone. Then it is left for healing and can take time up to 3 months to heal. Followed by this, an abutment is bonded with the implant, and a custom-made artificial tooth also known as the crown is attached to the abutment. Compared with other treatments, it has the highest success rate.

Dental Bridge:

This is a perfect solution when missing teeth or teeth are in the same area or where there are teeth on either side of the missing tooth or teeth. The bridge is cemented at the place of missing teeth and it is a fixed solution. The teeth on either side of the teeth are cut down and then a bridge with an artificial tooth is bonded on the adjacent teeth. The benefit of using a dental bridge for replacing a missing tooth is that it is fixed and gives the feeling of the natural tooth.

Emergency dentist Basingstoke does it carefully as a poorly fitted bridge can also damage the teeth on either side. In general, there are four types of dental bridges namely traditional, cantilever, Maryland, and implant-supported. Dental bridges are needed to be replaced after every 5 to 15 years. If proper care is being taken then dental bridges can last up to 15 years.
