Missing Teeth

A missing tooth can adversely affect the natural beauty of your smile, the structure of your profile and your ability to chew and speak.

If you have a missing tooth, it is important to discuss your options for replacing it with your dentist as soon as possible.

If my missing tooth doesn’t bother me, is there any reason to replace it?

Every tooth has a role in your mouth, so it is important to replace a missing tooth as soon as possible. A missing tooth can do more than impact your smile. Other consequences include:

  • Poor aesthetics
  • Embarrassment about the gap in your smile
  • Loss of jawbone which affects your facial structure
  • Reduced biting force
  • Difficulty chewing and speaking
  • Shifting teeth impact your bite and are difficult to clean
  • Grinding and clenching

What options do you offer for missing teeth?

At Etwall Dental Practice we offer several options for replacing missing teeth such as implants, bridges, and dentures. The option you choose will depend on the number of missing teeth, and the condition of your remaining teeth, gums and jawbone.

COVID-19 update

Many of you will be aware that during the latest Covid 19 update dental practices have been given the green light to re-open the surgery from 8th June. Whilst this is good news, there are a number of procedures that we have being putting in place to make treatment safe for our patients and staff, as we are sure you will appreciate, this is taking some time to set up.

Our intention is, if at all possible to commence opening on the 8th June but this is entirely dependent on our ability to obtain training and appropriate PPE which as you know there is a great shortage of. This equipment will be essential for us to be able to operate.

From 8th- 29th of June we will be prioritising the most urgent of cases including those who have been experiencing problems during this lockdown period. We will contact you directly to arrange an appointment. This period may be extended if required.

Rest assured we are trying our utmost to source this PPE as soon as possible to enable us to extend our treatment further to include fillings, crown/bridge work, root treatments and surgical extractions, scale & polish ect.

We anticipate that it will be several weeks before we will be able to commence these more advanced procedures.

This is a rapidly changing environment which we are adapting to as quickly as we possibly can. We really appreciate your patience and understanding throughout this difficult period and look forward to welcoming you back to the practice soon.
