Dwelling on the past isn’t good for your future happiness. If something is getting you down, it is important that you can move on. This applies to tooth loss too, especially if you’re wondering what went wrong and what you could have done to prevent it. You can’t get your old tooth back but you can replace it. At Tiwari Watson Dental Care, we provide dental implants in Glasgow to patients after they have experienced tooth loss.
Whether you have lost one, several or all of your teeth, dental implants in Glasgow might be the most suitable treatment for you. Having a fear of something can be diminished once you confront it, especially when you visit our practice. We understand that some people find a trip to the dentist nerve-wracking because they’re not always sure what to expect. Our caring and experienced implant dentists, Joseph Watson and David Chan, are calm in their approach to procedures. A consultation before your treatment will help with any concerns you might have and gives your dentist the opportunity to get to know you and your teeth.
Replacing what’s missing with dental implants in Glasgow
An implant is a small titanium screw and it acts as an artificial root. Once the jawbone has healed around it, the implant is then secure enough to have a replacement tooth fitted on top. Your replacement tooth is custom-made by dental technicians to match the colour and shape of your remaining teeth. The idea is that the replacement tooth will be indistinguishable among your natural teeth.
Multiple implants are provided to patients who have lost several teeth. Missing teeth can then be replaced with customised bridges or dentures secured to the implants. This is particularly good news for patients who have been dealing with loose or wobbly dentures for some time.
A smiley future
When you lose a tooth, it affects the shape of your jawbone as a result of bone degeneration. By receiving implants, the remaining bone tissue is stimulated to grow and mesh around the metal. This helps you avoid the undesired ‘sunken face’ appearance so commonly seen among denture wearers, allowing you to smile without further worry.
