Teeth can be missing for several reasons, such as disease and decay, or even injury where the teeth have been knocked out. You may have also had a tooth replacement that has failed, and never had it replaced. It is important to replace teeth as soon as possible, as a missing tooth can cause all sorts of problems, such as tooth erosion and issues with alignment.

In this case, if you have a missing tooth, then it is important to address the issue head on. There are many ways to replace missing teeth, which fall under the category of restorative dentistry. Restorative dentistry can also be a small amount of repair, not always full replacements. This can be with a treatment such as a crown, or cosmetic bonding, which works with a tooth coloured resin in order to cover up and fill in chips and cracks. This is a fantastic way to restore the look of a tooth that may not need a full replacement but might just need a slight repair to the enamel.
Crowns work by fitting over an existing tooth that may have been damaged or decayed, and is too weak for a filling, but still has a healthy root. A crown can provide a fantastic replacement to the tooth, and an aesthetic one too, as you will have a completely new tooth. If you are looking for a dentist in Soho to fit you with a crown, then please contact us as soon as you can.
Bridges & Dentures
To replace multiple teeth, that have often lost the root as well, then bridges and dentures are the way forwards. Bridges work by being secured in between two healthy teeth either side, or in some cases two crowns. The benefit of a bridge is that several teeth can be replaced at once, relatively cost effectively. As a bridge is also anchored between two supports, it provides an extremely sturdy replacement for your teeth.
Dentures are a fantastic way to replace an entire set of teeth at once, and relatively low risk. Dentures can also be removed, unlike other forms of dental treatment, which means that you can maintain a perfect dental hygiene while wearing the dentures.
Many treatments that use dentures often use dental implants in the process. Dental implants are special titanium screws that are inserted into the jawbone. This provides an extremely strong foundation for the dentures and removes many problems that dentures often face like slippage. If you are looking for restorative dentistry, and need a dentist in Soho who can advise you on these topics, then do not hesitate to approach us and ask for further information.
