There are many ways your teeth can go AWOL in central Leeds, but whether it be by poor oral hygiene and tooth decay or from injury, the point is that you should do all you can to plug up the gap quickly, otherwise, there is a chance that the surrounding teeth could suffer, become infected and hence lead to further loss in the future. If your tooth has been knocked out and you can save it, chances are that if you get to a dentist quickly, it can be popped back in. But if the tooth has gone altogether, you are going to have to have a replacement made. This can come in several guises: partial dentures are becoming more and more popular when a tooth has gone missing because they are easy and cheap, plus they work perfectly. However, if you fancy something more permanent, then the other options are either a dental bridge or to go all out and have a dental implant screwed into your jaw and topped with a crown. In all cases, they are all perfect in what they do and aside from the aesthetics to your smile and face that they maintain and keep you looking young: from a health angle, they also help to retain the ‘bite’ of the mouth so that the pressure on your jaw joints is kept to a minimum.
