Tooth loss can be very damaging to your self-confidence and your health. Occasions that usually bring you joy where you are smiling and laughing suddenly become embarrassing because you are so self-conscious about your teeth.
You may have noticed that you have a few loose teeth or may have actually lost a tooth.
Most tooth loss is caused by gum disease or a dental trauma. You are more likely to have gum disease if:
Good oral hygiene is essential for preventing tooth loss and tooth decay. If you have any worries about your teeth or gum health, you should book an appointment with your dentist.
You should brush your teeth every morning and evening and ensure that you use floss to remove any build up of plaque or food residue between your teeth. It is this residue that causes gum disease.
I have missing teeth – what are my options?
If you have unfortunately lost one or more teeth, you are likely to be looking for ways to disguise your tooth loss. A popular option is dentures, removable or fixed with a dental implant. Whilst removable dentures are a common choice as they are fairly low cost, they also come with maintenance and the fear that they might slip in your mouth. Dentures also make eating certain foods difficult, limiting what you can consume. Dental implants act as a natural tooth and are highly durable, meaning that you can eat confidently!Back to Blog
