Causes of missing teeth 

There is a common assumption that people only lose teeth as they get older. However, there are many different ways that a person can lose their teeth irrespective of age, with causes such as periodontal disease (gum disease), dental caries (tooth decay), damage through trauma and inadequate or failed dental work.

Treatment for missing teeth

There are several solutions to missing teeth and we always offer the optimum long-term treatment for the individual patient according to his or her needs, dental condition and budget. Solutions can include, but are not exclusive to:

Replacing missing teeth improves a smile and helps to support the overall structure of the mouth and the shape of the face. Here at The Windsor Centre for Advanced Dentistry, we are creating healthy, vibrant and more youthful appearances through high-end techniques, skills and attention to detail.

Once a tooth has been lost it needs replacing for two primary and important reasons; functionality and aesthetics. By optimally restoring the teeth and smile you improve dental health and self-confidence.

How to prevent missing teeth


Some instances of missing teeth are unavoidable, such as those who have teeth knocked out due to harsh impacts and accidents, or those who were simply born with some teeth missing – also known as hypodontia.

However, where these causes are not at fault, poor dental hygiene is often at fault. Which is why it is essential for people to take proper care of their teeth, if they hope to keep as many of them as possible for as long as possible. 

Standard practices of good oral hygiene are often enough to keep your teeth and gums in ship shape and prevent missing teeth – brushing your teeth twice a day, flossing daily and using mouthwash are all excellent choices. On top of this, avoiding over-consumption of sugary drinks and snacks will also help your teeth last longer, as these substances are known to break down the teeth and gums over time.
