Missing teeth 

Are you suffering from tooth loss?

The loss of teeth may leave you with feelings of inadequacy and in extreme cases may gravely injure your self- esteem. It is therefore advisable to replace lost teeth as soon as possible to prevent further damage and improve appearance. Replacement of teeth may be done in one of several ways including use of dentures, implants and bridge work. 

What are the benefits of replacing missing teeth?
Within the age group of 20- 30, most people will have lost their first tooth. At this young age, it is important to replace the lost teeth to maintain the physical appearance as well as protect the gum. The following are some possible solutions to tooth loss:

Dentures.  Temporary dentures are placed during the period after the loss of teeth before the jaw heals. After this, a long- term dentures are placed either partially or fully. Partial is used when only a few teeth are missing while full dentures are used when the upper jaw or the lower one is missing all teeth. 

Dental bridge. Dental bridge can be described as a fixed dental restoration to bridge the gap created by one or more missing teeth. Dental bridge can last from between 7- 15 years with basic care. 

Use of dental implants. Dental implants are metal roots placed on the jaw to support false teeth. With due care, they can last up to twenty years. Dental implants are considered to be one of the most secure and longest lasting teeth replacement solutions.
