Filling Gaps
Many people have gaps in their mouth where teeth have been previously removed and there are several options for filling these gaps.

Bridges are porcelain or ceramic teeth that attach to adjacent teeth either via a crown around the adjacent tooth or by sticking on the back of adjacent teeth. These are most suitable for small gaps.

Implants can be used to fill any size of gap and consist of titanium screws that are placed in the bone and act as a new tooth root. Porcelain or ceramic crowns are then placed on top of the implant.

Dentures (false teeth) are a useful tool when filling gaps , particularly when a number of teeth are missing. There are 2 types – acrylic and cobalt chrome. The chrome dentures are less bulky and ‘clip’ on to remaining teeth for stability.

Each option has it’s own merits and are more suitable for certain patients. A consultation with a dentist will enable a full range of options suitable to you to be presented and thoroughly explained.
