Daylight Robbbery - My front tooth is missing!
I want it back NOW.
There may be many reasons for missing teeth. Most commonly people loose them because of tooth decay, gum disease or unfortunate accidents and sometimes from birth.
Historically, the only solution for missing teeth was dentures. In some societies, dentures were provided as early as 21 years of age, leaving the person going through the rest of their life with false teeth. Can you just imagine socializing with false teeth?
Bridges are a perfect alternative where most healthy teeth are present. They are fixed that do not have to be removed at all. They look natural but need support from teeth on either side of the gap. However, as people’s dental health has improved with fluoride from tooth pastes, this option is becoming less favourable because people do not want their healthy teeth touched or reshaped.
Nowadays, people with single or several missing teeth are looking to be able to eat, laugh and talk with confidence just like anybody else. They are turning to Dental Implants as a superior alternative to improve and fulfil their quality of life.
