What is a dental implant?
In years gone by, having a missing tooth or teeth didn’t leave people with a lot of options. They could simply put up with the situation, enduring the decreased confidence that comes with missing teeth and everything related to that. Alternatively, some opted for dentures as a means of replacing the teeth and restoring their smile.
Dental implants are the modern alternative to having dentures fitted, and are an increasingly popular choice for those who want to resolve the problem of missing teeth without having to feel self-conscious about wearing removable hardware. For those who have been wearing dentures, implants can be an effective means of treating tooth loss, when the mouth can no longer support them as a result of shrinkage over time.
They are made from titanium, a durable material that integrates well with the gums to provide a good result. The titanium root is placed directly into the gum for a permanent resolution to just one missing tooth or even several. Because the material integrates well, it is accepted by the body and becomes fused into the gum and bone – which offers a very natural effect.
What are the benefits of this treatment?
Because of our high level of expertise and experience in the field of dental implants, you can expect to enjoy a wide range of benefits on completion of your treatment. You will look better and feel more confident about your appearance. This is because implants are permanently fixed to your gums, so they look very natural and are usually indistinguishable from your natural teeth.
If you have previously worn dentures to treat the issue of missing teeth, you may have found that this had an impact on your speech. This is because they often become loose over time, which can make talking a bit more of a challenge. The fixed nature of implants means you don’t need to worry about your speech being affected, and can get on with enjoying your social and professional life without any anxiety.
Dentures can be uncomfortable, and cause irritation if they move around in the mouth. Implants eradicate that issue, because they are much more like natural teeth.
You can enjoy better oral health after having implant treatment. This is because the teeth are easy to clean, there are no special instructions needed. This kind of treatment also allows us to preserve as many of your natural teeth as possible, so you can maintain the best oral health in the long term.
