Even one missing tooth can be very noticeable in your smile, particularly if it's a gap in the bottom teeth or top teeth at the front. Being wary of showing off this gap can put you off smiling in photographs or enjoying yourself at social occasions, but we don’t want this to ruin your summer.
Dental implants are a fantastic way to fix a gap between teeth. Whether from a missing tooth that has been lost to injury or a tooth that needs to be removed due to decay, an implant provides a natural looking and reliable method for replacing a missing tooth.
Of course, if you have a missing tooth it might be possible to leave it, if it is towards the back of your mouth, isn’t really visible when you talk or smile and doesn’t cause you any problems when eating or talking. However, leaving a gap can sometimes cause issues with the surrounding teeth as they move or twist into the gap, so it’s important to visit your dentist regularly so they can monitor the situation.
If the gap is noticeable, then you will probably be looking for a solution to fix it and dental implant treatment is often what we recommend.
What are Dental Implants?
Dental implants replace the natural tooth root that has been lost. Think of them as small screws which are fixed into the jawbone and left to fuse, then once they are ready they can support crowns, bridges or dentures to restore your smile and close the gap between teeth.
The success rate of dental implants is very high, particularly if you are a non-smoker and take good care of your teeth and gums, so they offer a much more permanent alternative to dentures. Plus, you don’t have to worry about what you eat, in fact if you have struggled in the past with biting and chewing because of a gap between your teeth you’ll probably find it much easier once you have a dental implant to replace the missing tooth.
