If you have a missing tooth you are placing greater strain on the teeth either side of the gap. Having a gap will also affect the way your teeth bite together, eventually causing teeth either side of the gap to drift, or lean into the space. This in turn may lead to food traps where tooth decay bacteria breeds. It is therefore really important not to have any gaps between your teeth. In addition, not having a gap between your teeth, which is visible when you smile will enhance your appearance, and increase your confidence.
There are several ways we can help with replacing missing teeth and these are:
REPLACING TEETH WITH REMOVABLE DENTURES:
Always clean your dentures after each meal to remove any food debris. Use an effervescent denture cleaner to help you clean off stubborn stains, and make the denture feel fresher by soaking. After soaking the denture, brush it again, making sure you thoroughly clean all the surfaces of the denture, paying special attention to the surface that comes into contact with your gums.
