At Desford Dental Care, our compassionate dental team know how difficult it can be to live with a missing tooth or multiple missing teeth.

What should I do if I have a missing tooth or teeth?

Our team here at Desford Dental Care will almost always recommend replacing a missing tooth or teeth. This is because missing teeth can lead to a multitude of further issues, which as a practice that emphasises preventive care, we want to avoid wherever we can.

What are the further problems that missing teeth can cause?

Having a missing tooth or multiple missing teeth can cause the remaining teeth to move and realign to fill the gap left by the tooth or teeth. This in turn can contribute to bone loss in the jaw, which in turn can contribute to the visible signs of ageing as the facial structure may change.

Other issues include food and debris getting trapped in the gap left by a tooth, which can then contribute to a higher risk of tooth decay. Missing teeth can also have a detrimental effect on a patient’s confidence and sense of self. Patients with missing teeth often feel self-conscious of their teeth and smile. It can also cause difficulty eating and speaking.

What options are there when replacing missing teeth?

At Desford Dental Care, we can offer our patients a range of options when it comes to replacing missing teeth. Dentures and bridges are some of the most popular options for replacing either a tooth or multiple missing teeth. We can also offer advice on implants as a replacement and will be able to refer you out of practice if this is something you’re interested in.
