The loss of a tooth, or many teeth, often raises several questions for patients. At the most basic level, individuals want to know what can be done cosmetically to avoid gaps or spaces in their teeth. However, it’s important to realise that missing teeth can have far more ramifications than simple cosmetic concerns.

Bridges can be used to hide missing teeth, but you may also want to consider dental implants. Cambridge dentists such as the team at Riverside Dental Care can talk you through the many reasons dental implants are a great idea.

For example, when you have missing teeth, one of the primary concerns you may face is the deterioration of underlying bone in the jaw at the site of the tooth. This atrophy or shrinkage happens because that bone no longer has a use as it did before when it was needed to support the tooth. With a dental implant, that bone stays strong and healthy.

Dental implants support your health in other ways as well. When it comes to your oral health, implants keep other teeth in your jaw from shifting. They can prevent changes in your bite that could potentially lead to cracks, cavities, or other serious problems.

Ultimately, when it comes to dental implants, Cambridge patients should remember that there is no right or wrong answer. They are a great solution in many instances, but it is always best to consult a professional who can help you weigh your options and make a sound decision about your treatment. When you work with us at Riverside Dental Care, we’ll look at your individual needs as a patient. That way we can work together to come up with the dental solution that works best for you.

Being a natural wimp when it comes to Dentists I cannot speak highly enough of the team at Riverside Dental. Maia was... just lovely, as was her assistant Alice. I am more that happy to recommend them. Also, a pat on the back to Nicki in reception.read more

Jacqui was quite simply amazing with my 9 year old daughter today, who needed a filling. She explained the process in a... fantastic child friendly way. When she ‘put the tooth to sleep’ I expected my daughter to be in tears, but she didn’t even notice. I still don’t think she realises there was a needle and drill involved! Everyone left with big smiles, after a completely pain and trauma free experience. I would highly recommend Jacqui. Oh, and she does a similarly excellent job cleaning my teeth!read more
