Tooth Replacement Options
If you lose some or all of your teeth, it’s important to replace them as soon as possible or resulting problems can worsen over time.
The effects of missing teeth include the following:
- Appearance and smile can suffer in the case of missing front teeth
- Chewing function and overall wellbeing can suffer
- Teeth close to gaps may drift, tilt, and shift into them
- Teeth in the opposite jaw can grow into the gap because there’s no opposing tooth to bite against and keep it in place.
At Comfort Dental Centre Buderim, we offer a wide range of tooth replacement options for missing teeth. The right treatment will be determined by the position of the space, its size and appearance, as well as the presence or absence of adjoining teeth.
Depending on the factors mentioned above and your preference, the methods we offer can be broadly classified as removable and fixed options. Our solutions for missing teeth are guaranteed made from the highest quality of materials and are carried out with absolute proficiency by your Buderim dentist.
Removable Partial Denture – a more affordable option than bridges or implants and the most non-invasive method for replacing missing teeth. Removable partial dentures are usually made of metal and gum coloured plastic. They are easier to repair than other options and don’t rely on adjacent teeth for support or retention.
Complete Removable Denture – also known as arch dentures, complete removable dentures are ideal for patients with total tooth loss on either in the upper or lower jaw. The appliance is secured by bracing on the gum tissues and jawbone structure. Complete removable dentures can be conventional or immediate dentures.
Snap-on Smile – a modern option for improving and restoring smiles. You only need to snap the appliance in and out over your teeth. Snap-on Smile is a good alternative to partial dentures.
Dental Bridges – this is a fixed or non-removable appliance that is also used to replace missing teeth. Traditional bridges, which are made of porcelain fused to metal, are the most commonly used type of dental bridge. Porcelain bridges are popular because they resemble the natural teeth.
Dental Implants – implant dentistry is considered to be the most modern way to fill the gaps in your smile. Dental implants look and function just like your natural teeth. The implant stimulates the jawbone just like the roots of the teeth, keeping the jawbone healthy. The titanium implants are surgically placed on the jawbone to provide strong, comfortable and secure tooth replacement.
