Replacing missing teeth

Missing teeth can be distressing, especially if they are missing at the front of the mouth. It can lead to problems if teeth drift into spaces and can even lead to compromised chewing if many teeth are missing.

There are various methods that can be used to replace missing teeth. Which is most appropriate depends on the number of teeth missing, where they are in the mouth and the condition of the remaining teeth.


Dental implants are custom-made teeth replacements that are permanently attached to your jawbone. Implants are comfortable to wear and allow you to talk, eat and live your life as normal. They are also easy to care for and can last you a lifetime. Dental implants also do not damage healthy teeth, making them the perfect option to achieve your perfect smile. We do not place implants at Delph Dental Practice but will readily refer anyone interested in this treatment to an implant specialist.
