Cathays Dental Clinic is renowned for providing the highest standards in dental practice and procedures and take special care regarding missing teeth.
Missing teeth can affect someone's appearance and gaps from missing teeth can add more strain to other teeth in the mouth.
The presence of space caused by a missing tooth can affect the biting and chewing process, this happens as teeth next to the space can lean into the gap caused by the missing teeth and change the way the upper and lower teeth bite together. This can then lead to food getting packed into the missing space and can cause tooth decay and gum disease. Missing teeth can be replaced by using dentures, dental bridges and dental implants depnding on the individual situation.
