Replacing Missing Teeth

Replacing Missing Teeth (Prosthodontics)

This can range from simple plastic or metal dentures (false teeth) which need to be removed at night to more permanent ‘fixed’ alternatives such as Bridges or Dental Implants.

Dentures

Dentures remain a cost effective method of replacing a number of missing teeth or a full set by providing the patient with a removable appliance. Dentures can provide patients with reliable biting and chewing function and acceptable appearance.

The main disadvantages with dentures are that they are sometimes difficult to tolerate and are subject to slippage during speech and normal movement of the mouth. The bone in the jaw surrounding the missing tooth/teeth continues to recede and this can lead to a gradual collapse of the lower profile of the face
