Tooth Replacement

A missing tooth can not only be an aesthetic problem but can also open the door to other dental problems not as obvious.

Bridges

A dental bridge is a way of replacing a single missing tooth or a number of teeth. This is achieved by attaching a false tooth to the adjacent tooth or teeth and this can be done by a variety of ways depending on the individual circumstances. The false tooth may be constructed out of porcelain or composite resin and the aesthetic outcomes can be quite amazing. Speak to the dentist to see if this may be the best alternative to having a missing tooth for you.

Implants

Dental implants are a means of replacing teeth which have been lost or cannot be saved with conventional techniques. Implant replacement can range from a single tooth to full arch replacement.

An implant consists of a new crown attached by means of a titanium screw placed within the jaw bone. Following a period of osseointegration ( the formation of bone onto the surface of the implant anchoring it within the jawbone ) the crown is crafted and fixed to the top of the implant to restore its appearance and function.

Dental implants are a strong, safe and durable alternative to conventional dentures and bridges. Speak to one of our dentists to see if implant therapy could benefit you.

Dentures

Dentures are a traditional, common and inexpensive way of replacing single or multiple missing teeth
