If you have missing teeth that you would like to replace, a good solution may be a dental bridge.
Once you have a bridge fitted, you will have to take extra care during your daily hygiene regime to ensure it stays plaque free and does not cause bad breath.
If you have a few or all of your teeth missing, one solution is to have a denture.
When you wear a denture for the first time it may take some getting used to when speaking or eating and chewing. It is important that you take extra care when conducting your hygiene regime so that you can avoid bad breath, tooth decay and gum disease. The hygienist will be able to show you how to best take care of your denture and gums and will tell you about specialised brushes you can use to do this.
Have you lost all or some of your natural teeth? Bridges and dentures are not the only solution, thanks to advances in modern dentistry. Have you heard of dental implants? Implant dentistry offers a clinically proven and safe solution to getting a great smile back and being able to bite and chew with confidence.
Whilst dental implants are not currently provided within the practice, please speak to your dentist who will be able to refer you to a suitably qualified dental professional.
