having problems with missing tooth

Missing teeth can cause a number of issues. Missing teeth are very unsightly and will have an effect on self image and how other perceives us. Missing teeth will also reduce our chewing power. We need to eat and chew properly to maintain general health.

Teeth in our jaws help to support each other. If you lose one or more teeth this support system fails and the remaining teeth move around. Teeth that move away from its natural position can cause problems in the jaw-bone, the way we eat and jaw joint problems. It is strongly recommended to replace missing teeth.

There are a number of ways to replace missing teeth. You could have removable dentures or fixed bridges and dental implant. Please arrange a consultation with Dr du Toit to discuss which option is best suited for you.
