Missing teeth can drastically affect your appearance and/or day to day living. The most common way to replace a missing tooth (or teeth) is by dentures. These can be partial to replace only a few teeth or full to replace all upper and lower teeth. There are many different materials that theses prosthetics can be manufactured from including plastic, metal and a flexible plastic material (valplast). Each of these materials has differing properties depending on your needs, make an appointment with one of our friendly dentists to discuss this further.
The other ways to place missing teeth are:
- Bridging the gap with crowns
Quick tip: Lower dentures can be very problematic! We would recommend you keep as many lower teeth as possible for as long as you can.
