You’re in need of tooth replacement and wondering which option will work best for you. This will depend on many factors such as how many remaining teeth you have, the condition of your teeth and more. Following in an overview of the 3 options we have available for tooth replacement to give you an idea of which may be suitable for you.
Partial dentures are a removable plate that can be made from plastic or cobalt- chrome alloy. These are a great, budget friendly option as they are the cheapest tooth replacement option and are easy to clean and maintain.
Conventional bridges are strong, natural looking and long lasting. They are a great option if your adjacent teeth are healthy and strong. This is because the adjacent teeth will need to be filed to accommodate your new artificial teeth. First, we file your adjacent teeth, then take an impression which is sent off to the lab and used to create your new bridge. At your final appointment, we fit your new bridge and ensure that it is comfortable and that it perfectly matches the colour of your other teeth.
PARTIAL – IMPLANT RETAINED FIXED BRIDGES
Implant retained fixed bridges are the stronger option for tooth replacement as they do not rely on your remaining teeth like conventional bridges but rather your jawbone is the support. The health of your teeth, gums and jawbone will need to be assessed to confirm if this option is suitable for you.
