Replacing missing teeth with our dentist in Tooting

Poor dental hygiene routines, avoiding dental checkups, tooth decay and gum disease can all result in tooth loss. Tooth loss is not a natural part of old age as many of us wrongly believe; with good dental hygiene and regular dental checkups, you can prevent tooth loss and enjoy good dental health for life. If you have been affected by missing teeth, then you must speak to us at Broadway Dental Centre sooner rather than later about replacing your missing teeth.

Tooth loss can affect your dental health in many ways. It can affect the health and stability of your surrounding teeth because teeth are designed to support each other. When one tooth is lost, the other teeth try to move to fill up the space left by the missing tooth, resulting in misalignment issues that have many detrimental effects.

Bone loss is another common and serious side effect of tooth loss. If you ignore a missing tooth for too long, this can result in bone decay, which will have a significant impact on your dental health. Tooth loss can affect your ability to eat properly, and depending on which tooth was lost, your speech may be affected as well. Tooth loss can harm the appearance of your face and affect your self-confidence and mental well-being. Speak to our dentist in Tooting at Broadway Dental Centre today and find out about the different tooth replacement options that are available for replacing your missing teeth.


There are two types of dentures: partial dentures and complete dentures. Partial dentures can replace some of your teeth, whilst complete dentures can replace entire sets. You can use dentures to replace your missing teeth almost immediately; this reduces the effects that tooth loss can have on certain aspects of your life, including your speech, appearance and ability to eat as you used to. Dentures are easy to adapt to, and they can replace your missing teeth without causing any pain during surgery or post-operative stress.

Bridges are a simple and effective option for replacing missing teeth. This option involves replacing your missing teeth with crowns that can be bonded to adjacent natural teeth. In this way, you can replace one to three missing teeth, depending on your requirements. The success rate for bridges is high, and they are a great way of restoring your natural appearance as well as the function of your mouth.

Dental implants are a permanent replacement for missing teeth. Dental implants require surgery and can take several months to complete; however, with dental implants, you can replace your missing teeth, and the results will last a lifetime. Dental implants can restore the appearance, function and health of your teeth. With dental implants, you can enjoy a happy and healthy smile.
