Tooth Replacement from £ 748
Including Implant +Abutment + Crown
What is the best way to replace a single missing tooth?
One common way of filling the gap left by a tooth which is removed or falls out is to support a prosthetic tooth by the teeth on each side using a “dental bridge”. This involves grinding and placing a crown on the healthy teeth to support the bridge, which is cemented in place.
Another option is a dental implant. This is attached directly to the jawbone and so causes no disturbance to other teeth. It also looks and behaves more like a natural tooth. The presence of the implant is better for the health of the bone, because it integrates with the bone in place of the root, while the bone under a bridge tends to resorb (wither away, because there is no longer any force acting on it.
Other advantages of the implant-fixed tooth compared with the bridge is that maintains its appearance better over time, and is easier to clean. It eliminates some problems associated with bridges: receding gums that expose the metal at the base, facial distortion caused by bone restoration, and decay of the supporting teeth if there is any loss of the cement holding the bridge.
