Some of the Finest Modern Dentistry Solutions for Missing Teeth

It’s a shocking truth that an average adult in the UK has missing teeth. Take note that it’s teeth and not tooth. In this circumstance, it’s highly relevant to discuss solutions to teeth loss.

The expert from one of the best private dental clinics in London says, you shouldn’t ignore filling up the gap along the jawline resulting from your missing natural tooth or teeth. Those gaps or the missing molars don’t allow you chew the foods well. This in turn, affects proper digestion of the foods you eat. In course of time, the problem leads to other oral health-related issues, like bite problem. Most importantly, maybe not immediately but in course of time the gaps along the jawline drive one to a state of mental depression. One deliberately tries to avoid smiling.

However, modern dentistry offers multiple options to resolve the problem of missing gaps along the gum-line resulting from missing natural teeth.

The options include:

  • Flipper: It is a partial denture to restore a missing tooth or teeth. It just fills up the gap on the jawline so that you can speak and smile without being overly self-conscious.
  • Resin-bonded bridge: Resin-bonded Bridge is also known as Rochette Bridge or Maryland bridge. Interestingly, it is used only to replace the front teeth in your mouth. These are very fragile and hence, can’t withstand the force of chewing like those teeth at the sides of your mouth.
  • Removable complete dentures: These are placed or set on the top of the gums. These are basically reasonable in cost and non-invasive alternative to oral implants.
  • A removable partial denture: This alternative, on the other hand, fills up the gap caused by one or more missing teeth along the same arch, which may or may not be adjacently positioned.
  • A teeth-supported fixed bridge: It is the most popular alternative to implant-based restorations. Different materials that are used in this include gold, porcelain, precious metal alloys or a combination of all these. This treatment alternative is more effective in cases of a single missing tooth and it is permanently cemented in its place to ensure durability.
  • All-on-four dental implants: It is a durable and cost-effective treatment alternative, which allows you to enjoy your favourite foods better as compared to dentures.
  • Implant supported fixed bridge: In this treatment, it’s not necessary to replace every missing tooth with a dental implant post. Rather, the fixed bridge supported by implant restores several of the missing teeth, including a complete arch in the mouth. The number of implants required in such cases depend on factors like the number of teeth being restored or type of implant used.
  • Dental implants: This is definitely the finest treatment option to resolve tooth loss problem. This invasive treatment offers a lifelong, realistic and maintenance-free solution. Dental implants surgery procedure doesn’t involve much pain as the implant post is drilled into your jaw.
