Once you have got other the initial shock of tooth loss, on any level, then you are confronted with the problem of finding a way to replace the tooth, which isn’t always necessary but generally a good idea if you want to prevent further complications cropping up in the future. You should first seek advice from your dentist who can guide you with a professional hand over the options and then between you, settle on the best one for you. One of best, tried and tested way of getting the job done in Leeds right now is the dental bridge; they take on many disguises, depending where the tooth/teeth have been lost, but generally, they can be adapted to any situation. The most common technique is to fill a hole with a replacement tooth that is moulded between two crowns and then cemented onto adjacent teeth; this can be also done over a gap of several teeth, although, this may require a mini-implant to ensure a long bridge is secured firmly in the middle. Other bridges use wires and resins to bond the new fitting to adjacent teeth. Bridges are great and looked after, will give you a good 20 years of service but if they do have one drawback it’s cleaning them; food can easily get stuck under the bridge and so they require special brushes to ensure you keep your teeth free from bacteria.
