Mulberry Dental Care can Help Fill in Lost Tooth Gaps for Patients from Kingston-upon-Thames

If you happen to go through the experience of losing a tooth, it can initially leave you in a state of shock.

At first you may not know what to do about replacing your missing tooth, but that’s why we have dentists and Mulberry dental care is on hand for patients from Kingston-upon-Thames and neighbouring areas who are in need of dental restoration.

For some people it isn’t a problem, there isn’t an issue of how it looks cosmetically, in fact, it can look quite ‘tough and ready’. But problem of vanity isn’t the question here, the future health of your teeth and gums is.

Losing a tooth can have a knock-on effect in your mouth, as teeth can move and infection can spread. The real solution to both cosmetic problems and your long-term oral health is to fill in the gap left by a lost tooth and one of the most popular methods is to have a dental bridge.

In simple terms a dental bridge means having ‘new’ artificial teeth bonded to the opposing teeth left at either side of the gap. In some cases this means a combination of wires from the new fitting being wrapped around the surrounding teeth and then bonded with resin. If the tooth or teeth have been lost in the middle of a row, the new teeth are bonded onto two crowns and then cemented over the original, adjacent teeth.

The procedure is easy to do and durable as well- lasting up to a good 20 years with care and affection.
