Missing Teeth

inner banner

Replacing missing teeth is important to prevent further dental issues, make eating more comfortable and restore your smile.

Why replace missing teeth?

When you have missing teeth, eating and speech can become more difficult and it can affect your confidence when smiling. Gaps between your teeth can also increase the risk of oral health problems when missing teeth are not replaced.

Replacing missing teeth with an appropriate dental treatment can:

  • Reduce stress on other teeth
  • Increase biting force
  • Make chewing and eating some foods easier
  • Reduce the risk of gum disease
  • Enhance oral hygiene

In addition, replacing missing teeth can prevent adjacent teeth from tilting or shifting into the empty space.

At Thurmaston Dental, Facial, & Implants, we recommend replacing missing teeth as soon as possible.  Your dentist will advise you on the personalised dental treatment that is right for you.

What treatments can be used to replace missing teeth?


A dental bridge is supported and fixed in place between crowns bonded to healthy teeth on either side of the gap.


Removable dentures can replace several missing teeth or a complete row of missing teeth to maintain your bite and give you a new smile.

Dental implants

Titanium inserts permanently fixed to the jawbone act as a replacement tooth root. A crown is bonded to the insert, taking the same shape and appearance as the missing tooth.

Your treatment to replace missing teeth will depend on the number and position of teeth as well as the condition of your gums and jawbone.
