you are an individual who has lost one or even several teeth within the mouth,
then you may believe bridges, dentures, or flexible dentures are the only
option you have. Dental implants may be a suitable option for you if you are
someone who wants:
A low maintenance after care routine, for example, so change or
alteration in the dental hygiene maintenance routine (brushing, flossing,
A natural looking alternative to natural teeth, so much so that it
will not be noticeably different to natural teeth.
A solution to discomfort and pain that is caused by missing teeth
or even several missing teeth within the mouth
To be able to eat normally
To be able to speak normally again
An aesthetically pleasing and natural looking smile
implants are essentially small titanium screws (typically less than one
centimetre long) which are placed in the jaw to replace the missing tooth,
which may have been lost through either health concerns (for example, gum
disease) or maybe even an accident (falling off a bike, for example). Crowns,
bridges, and dentures can then be fixed into place, and therefore adhered to
the dental implants.
of the life benefits of undergoing dental implants is that it can improve your
oral,and overall general body health. Having a missing tooth can cause a wide
array of issues and concerns, which may not be considered by many individuals.
Having a lack of one or even several teeth within the mouth can cause a mass
build up of bacteria within the mouth, this can later on lead to gum disease,
and even more severe health concerns.
you have a lack of tooth within the mouth, the bone of your jaw, and surrounding
tissue, may disappear or decay over time. When implants are placed, the bone is
stimulated and the bone re grows, and meshes with the metal (base of the dental
implant). Tiny blood vessels also prevent bone loss. Having a loss of a tooth
or even worse, several teeth, can lead to a ‘sunken look’ of the face, which
leads to an ageing appearance.
Why should I choose dental
implants over other forms of dentistry?
of the art’ dental implants are considered the gold standard for replacement,
as it does not rely on their teeth for support and works by using an individual
implant. This means healthy surrounding teeth are not affected and a minor
surgical procedure allows the dental implant to stand alone. The implant fuses
with the bone itself, providing a solid support for a natural looking porcelain
success rate is high, at around ninety five percent. These cost more initially,
however with proper care they can last a lifetime. Alternative forms such as
bridges can cause tooth decay, as well as damaging the surrounding teeth.
