Why Repair or Replace Missing Teeth?
It is always important to repair or replace missing teeth as soon as possible. This reduces the wear and tear on your remaining teeth and you will be able to eat more comfortably. Restoring lost teeth also helps ensure your remaining teeth cannot move out of position as this can affect your bite and even your jaw joints. Replacing missing teeth will provide support to your cheeks and lips and will restore your facial features to the correct dimensions, potentially creating a more youthful appearance. This can be particularly noticeable if you have lost multiple teeth or currently wear old and worn out dentures.
Prevention always trumps restoration
While our dentists understand that sometimes the loss of a tooth is unavoidable we always take care to educate our patients on the means of prevention. We employ a team of dental hygienists to correctly educate our patients on preventative treatments that can avert complications such as periodontitis.
