Missing Tooth Replacement

A missing tooth can have immediate aesthetic or functional implications. Over time there can also be movement of adjacent and opposing teeth into this space. There is increased risk of secondary issues developing with bite stability, jaw joint pain (temporomandibular joint), crack propagation in adjacent teeth, decay and gum disease. Current measures we have for replacing missing teeth are dentures, dental bridges or implants. 

Dentures are removable and can be made to replace one, several or an entire arch of teeth. Dentures are made over four appointments working closely with a local dental technician to ensure the most accurate and comfortable fit for you. 

Dental bridges are fixed and use adjacent teeth to anchor a prosthetic tooth that sits on the gum. 

Dental implants are the most popular and effective way of replacing a tooth. They have a great long-term prognosis and are the closest simulation to your natural teeth. A titanium screw is placed into the upper or lower jaw and allowed to integrate with the bone (osseointegration). This implant screw can then anchor a customised tooth specifically made for you.

To our valued patients,

Great news, we are now back to Level 1 restrictions! This means we can treat patients and perform all normal dental procedures. We will now begin contacting all patients that had their appointments postponed during the level 2 and 3 restrictions.

We are taking the following steps to ensure the safety of all:

  • Screening all patients to ensure they are well and have not recently returned from overseas or interstate. That they have not been in contact with anyone who is or may be a COVID-19 risk
  • Adhering to social distancing
  • Using hand sanitizer on arrival
  • Using pre mouthwash rinse prior to treatment
  • Using the highest necessary standard of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)
  • Regular and thorough cleaning of all surfaces

If you are unwell or experiencing any cold and flu like symptoms, we ask that you please stay at home and postpone your appointment until you are well and have been cleared of any COVID-19 risk.

We appreciate your patience and look forward to seeing you soon.
