At Clocktower Dental Surgery, as part of our commitment to preventive dentistry, we always recommend replacing a missing tooth or teeth wherever possible.

Why do we recommend replacing missing teeth?

Missing teeth can lead to a wide variety of further issues for your overall oral health and hygiene. They can also cause feelings of insecurity or a lack of self-confidence and have a detrimental effect on the patient’s smile confidence.

As a practice, we are always seeking to help our patients feel good about their smile and to help maintain and promote their oral health well into the future. The replacement of missing teeth can help with both of these aims.

What oral health issues can missing teeth lead to?

Missing teeth can lead to issues such as misalignment as other teeth move to fill the gap left by the missing tooth or teeth. It can also contribute to bone loss in the jaw, which in turn can lead to a change in the shape of the facial structure contributing to visible signs of ageing. Other issues include food and debris getting caught or trapped in the gap, which in turn can contribute to tooth decay.

What are my replacement options?

We offer a wide range of replacement options when it comes to missing teeth. We’ll always talk through your options with you, and can offer guidance on which options are most suitable for your particular oral health history and situation. Some of the options on offer here at Clocktower Dental Surgery include dentures, bridges, and implants.
