Missing Tooth

Missing tooth

Don't let a missing tooth trouble you any longer! ... Revitalize your smile and your confidence with a range of natural looking replacement solutions from the experts at Surfers Paradise Dental Centre (SPDC).

Whether lost through accident or decay, it's important you replace a missing tooth not just to improve your appearance, but also to help promote normal function and prevent a range of other problems, including:

  • Receding gums and loss of bone within the jaw
  • Cheeks looking hollow or collapsed because of a missing tooth
  • Stress causing damage to other teeth
  • Teeth near the gap, shifting
  • Distortion of your natural bite
  • Problems with speech and chewing

At SPDC, you have a variety of tooth replacement solutions available to you and these cater for all manner of wants, needs and budgets.

Lost Tooth Alternatives

One of the best, most natural looking solutions is the use of a single tooth dental implant. It's a fixed, free-standing solution that feels and functions just like a natural tooth.

Dental bridges are also a great alternative. A conventional dental bridge relies on crowns to either side of a missing tooth to anchor the dental bridge/replacement tooth in place. In the case of bonded dental bridges, the replacement tooth is glued to the teeth on either side of the missing tooth's gap.

Partial dentures are another solution for replacing a missing tooth. Thanks to dental technologies today, these look more natural and fit better than ever before.

Each tooth replacement alternative has its own distinct merits, but like all dental solutions, their suitability depends on a person's individual circumstances. Your SPDC dentist can best advise on which alternatives are ideal for you.
