Missing Teeth

Missing several teeth can adversely influence your daily life. It can affect your overall health, appearance, and self-esteem.

As we age, we lose bone density in our jaw which can lead to tooth loss. Severe cases of gum disease or periodontitis can also cause teeth to loosen and fall out.

Other causes of missing teeth include accidental injury or trauma and congenital issues such as when there is no adult tooth.

When you lose teeth, your gum and jaw bone are no longer stimulated, and the jaw bone begins to shrink. Bone recession can weaken neighbouring teeth and adversely impact your facial structure making you look older.

Replacing missing teeth can restore your bite, improve your speech and enhance your appearance.

The most popular replacement tooth options include dental implants, bridges, and dentures.

If you are missing one or more of your teeth and you would like to discuss your suitability for any of the replacement options we provide, call us on 020 8224 7562.
