Having missing teeth or the threat of losing your teeth can be quite distressing. Your smile and its functions are a central part of life as well as your look. Fortunately, there are many excellent dental procedures that you can explore to either prevent loss or replace missing teeth in Berkshire at our clinic.
Why have teeth replaced?
We associate a full, bright smile with health and youth. If you have gaps or unhealthy teeth, this can affect your confidence. Any self-consciousness can have a knock-on effect, professionally and personally. Getting your teeth replaced can give you a new lease of life. The replacements are often stronger, easier to use and more aesthetically pleasing than the teeth they have replaced.
Another reason to replace teeth is for your general dental hygiene. Unhealthy teeth can affect those around them. Tooth sockets are also more prone to infection. A full set of teeth is easier to take care of.
Basic functions like eating and speaking rely on the teeth. In order to enjoy a full range of foods, it is best to have the fullest set you can manage. Speaking well and confidently relies on you feeling like you are clear and can be heard. If missing teeth are affecting either of these things, replacing them can restore some or all of your functionality.
What are your options?
There are a number of options depending on the current condition of your teeth, your budget and your priorities. Your dentist will assist you in weighing these things against what is possible and creating the best overall outcome.
Your options might include a crown or bridge if you have only one or a few damaged teeth. If you need complete restoration for some or all of your teeth then dentures or dental implants are solutions you could consider.
