Replacing a missing tooth with a dental implant is often the best thing for your oral health. At Excellence in Dentistry we will always address a missing tooth with a holistic approach. Our skilled dentists at our Wickham Terrace practice will spend time explaining the procedure and assessing your teeth.
The connection between the mouth and the body
Dr Sally Farhandi believes that the health of the body is intrinsically connected to your oral health. Even loss of one single tooth will effect your body adversely such as:-
- Teeth can collapse into a gap from a missing tooth
- There can be overeruption of the tooth from the opposing jaw
- There can be a massive change in bite and chewing pattern, causing pressure on joint of your jaw
We will spend time assessing your oral health to identify the cause of your tooth loss before proceeding to the treatment. This assessment can help to ensure that your tooth loss is confined to just the one tooth.
