Testimonials

Losing all your teeth can feel like quite an overwhelming and rather personal ordeal. It’s far more than a mere question of appearance; it affects the way we articulate words, savour our meals, and engage with mates at the local pub or over a cuppa.

Treatment Options for All Missing Teeth

When it comes to all missing teeth, there are several treatment options available, including dental implants, fixed bridges, removable partial dentures, and removable complete dentures.

Each option has its own benefits and considerations, so it’s important to discuss with your dentist which solution would be best for you.

Dental Implants

We offer dental implants as a long-term solution for all missing teeth. They act like artificial tooth roots and provide strong anchors for replacement teeth. Dental implants can improve your smile, make eating easier, and help preserve the bone in your jaw.

This prevents the bones from weakening over time.

Getting dental implants involves oral surgery where we place metal posts into the jawbone beneath your gums. Once in position, these posts allow us to mount new teeth onto them. For those who have lost all their natural teeth, full sets of dentures or fixed bridges held by implants are an option too.

The All-on dental implant technique supports a full arch with just four to six implants, which could be ideal if you’re looking for fewer surgeries and quicker recovery times.

Fixed Bridges

When considering tooth replacement options, fixed bridges are a popular choice for those with all missing teeth. Unlike dental implants that require surgery, fixed bridges involve anchoring the artificial teeth to adjacent natural teeth or dental implants.

This option is ideal for individuals who may not be suitable candidates for extensive surgical procedures due to medical conditions or bone density issues as seen in hypodontia causes and treatment.

Fixed bridges provide stability, improve chewing ability, and prevent the shifting of remaining natural teeth while addressing the potential problems associated with total tooth loss.

Fixed bridges offer a non-removable solution for individuals experiencing problems with missing teeth by restoring oral health and function. Additionally, they can help prevent further bone weakening, which is common among individuals without any natural teeth at all.

Removable Partial Dentures

Removable partial dentures are a treatment option for individuals with multiple missing teeth. They are custom-made to fit comfortably in the mouth and can be easily removed for cleaning.

These dentures help restore chewing function and prevent the remaining natural teeth from shifting out of place. It’s essential to maintain good oral hygiene while wearing removable partial dentures, as they can contribute to gum disease if not kept clean.

Over 35 million people in the United Kingdom do not have any teeth, making removable partial dentures a popular choice for tooth replacement. Furthermore, missing teeth can lead to bone weakening and density loss in the mouth, emphasising the importance of considering suitable options like removable partial dentures or other dental restoration methods.

Removable Complete Dentures

Removable complete dentures are a viable option for those with all missing teeth. These artificial teeth and gums can be easily removed for cleaning and sleeping. They help restore normal chewing and speech, providing support to facial muscles, and preventing the remaining teeth from shifting.

However, it’s important to note that they may need adjustments over time due to changes in the jawbone and gum ridges.

Some people find them uncomfortable initially but get used to them after a few weeks. It’s crucial to adhere to proper denture care practices including regular cleaning, maintenance, and periodic dental check-ups for assessing their fit and overall oral health.

Neglecting these routine care steps can lead to fungal infections or other problems.
