Losing one tooth or more is not a pleasant experience. Eating and speaking are immediately affected with missing teeth, and gaps in your mouth can be unattractive. At the same time, tooth loss can affect your oral and overall health negatively, since if left untreated, it can lead to further tooth loss as well as jawbone loss. Luckily, dental implants can help.
At Tiwari Watson Dental Care, dental implants are our preferred treatment for patients who have lost one or many teeth. Our experienced implant dentists, Joseph Watson and David Chan, will examine your teeth carefully and determine if you are a good candidate for dental implants in Glasgow. Dental implants in Glasgow are incorporated into the jawbone, creating a strong and sturdy foundation for replacement teeth that look, feel and function just like your natural teeth.
Bone loss and oral health
Missing teeth are not always replaced straight after extraction. This can cause many problems, since as soon as the tooth is removed, the bone in the jaw stops to be stimulated. The jawbone requires constant stimuli in order to stay strong and healthy and without it, it will gradually start falling apart.
After some time, the retreating jawbone will affect the neighbouring teeth that will start to loosen and eventually fall. Once teeth start becoming loose in the jawbone, the problem will spread and become more extensive causing tooth loss and a change in your appearance.
Preventing bone loss in the jawbone is as easy as replacing your missing teeth with dental implants as soon as possible after they are lost. This will ensure that your jawbone is constantly receiving stimulation and your teeth will remain strong and healthy for longer.
How can dental implants in Glasgow help?
Dental implants are made of titanium, a metal that has the ability to fuse with bone tissue. Once placed in your jawbone, the titanium alloy implants fuse with the soft tissue until they are fully incorporated. In short, dental implants act just like your tooth roots.
