Did You Know Baker Street Dental Can Replace Missing Teeth?

shutterstock_465827666Have you lost a tooth? Losing a tooth can be distressing, but at Baker Street Dental, we’re here to ensure that it’s not the end of your beautiful smile. We can replace missing teeth using a series of different treatment options.

Tooth replacement options

If you lose a tooth or a number of teeth, there are various treatment options open to you. These include:

  • Dental implants: dental implants are a long-term solution for missing teeth, and they can be used to replace a single tooth or a number of teeth. Implants are usually made from titanium, which is a biocompatible material. This means that the implant can integrate into the jaw bone tissue once it has been fitted. Implants are compatible with bridges, crowns and dentures and they are famed for producing incredibly lifelike results. Implants last for many years, but they are more expensive than crowns and dentures.
  • Dental bridges: dental bridges are restorations, which are used to bridge the gap when a tooth is lost. Bridges are usually made from a false tooth, which is supported by a crown on either side. Bridges can be fitted in two sessions, and they should last up to 15 years. Ceramic bridges tend to be most popular, as they look the most natural.
  • Dentures: if you’re missing a number of teeth or a whole arch of teeth, a partial or complete denture may be recommended. Dentures are sets of prosthetic teeth, which are designed to mimic natural teeth. Dentures don’t last as long as implants or bridges and some people find them uncomfortable, but they are the cheapest option.
