Dental Implants in South YorkshireWhat are your options?

There are a number of options available for replacing missing teeth:

  • Dentures
  • Bridges
  • Dental implants.

Dental implants in South Yorkshire are an increasingly popular choice for our patients. Let’s look at the 3 options to get a better understanding of how they work.

Dentures

Dentures are a traditional and low cost option. There are partial dentures and full dentures. Dentures should be taken out at night time for cleaning and sleeping. They can take some getting used to as they’re held in place by suction to the gums. It’s possible to use denture adhesives to help hold your dentures in place. Dentures can affect your speech and limit the foods you can eat.

Bridges

Bridges are securely fixed in place as they are attached to neighbouring teeth. These supporting teeth will be compromised as they’ll need to be ground down and have crowns attached in order to hold the bridge in place. As with dentures, bridges replace only the top of your tooth, not the root.

Dental implants

Dental implants in South Yorkshire are the modern way to replace teeth. They are a fixed tooth replacement that replaces the top of your tooth and the root. They don’t need to be taken out or cleaned in a special way. They look natural and feel natural. Patients tell us that dental implants in South Yorkshire are the next best thing to natural teeth, and we agree. Implants can be used in a number of ways. They can:

  • Replace failed, loose or broken bridges
  • Replace loose or broken dentures
  • Stabilise dentures
  • Replace one, several or a whole mouth full of missing teeth.
