Dental implants in Ipswich for a healthy and happy smile


There are many factors which can result in tooth loss and as an adult we understand that this can be a highly distressing and uncomfortable situation to find yourself in. The main cause of tooth loss is poor oral hygiene. Unfortunately, sometimes, we may think that we have a good dental hygiene routine in place, but without regular visits to our dentist at Ipswich Dental Surgery you cannot be sure. This is because many dental issues are asymptomatic to begin with and may only present themselves once they have progressed significantly or caused irreversible damage.

To help prevent this it is important that you visit our dentist on a regular basis and we recommend booking an appointment every 6 months for a comprehensive examination of your teeth and gums. This is to make sure that they are strong and healthy and that there are no underlying dental problems present. Sometimes dental issues may have progressed so far that your tooth cannot be saved and either it falls out naturally or you have to undergo a tooth extraction. Unfortunately sometimes you may lose a tooth as a result of an injury or trauma to your mouth. If you have lost a tooth or you have missing teeth then you are not alone, speak to us at our surgery today to find out about the treatment options that we have to help address your missing teeth.
