Everyone appreciates a warm, friendly smile, but did you know it can help you to appear more genuine, open and professional – benefitting both your personal life and career? If you’ve been considering dental implants but haven’t felt ready to take the leap, read on to discover why now is the perfect time to invest in your smile.
Bridges have traditionally been used to replace missing teeth, however they are not the ideal solution. One problem is that they rely on the support of surrounding teeth. Dental implants, in contrast, use state-of-the-art dentistry to replace not just the visible part of the tooth, but also the root, without compromising the integrity of otherwise healthy surrounding teeth.
This is achieved thanks to a tiny, biocompatible titanium screw that is attached to a lifelike dental crown. Not only do you get exceptional cosmetic results, you are also able to restore strength in the jaw and prevent weakness in the future. The implant itself is completely invisible, while the crown looks and feels just like your natural teeth. Implants are suitable for almost every patient and can be used to replace anything from a single missing tooth to a complete arch.
What most patients with missing teeth really want is for their mouth to look and feel completely natural – and that is exactly what dental implants offer. Because dental implants are mounted on a replacement root made of biocompatible titanium, they are completely self-supported and you will not feel any unfamiliar sensations in your mouth. At the same time, the crown is carefully prepared to look and feel just like your natural teeth. Once your implants have been fully fitted, you’ll quickly forget you ever had missing teeth!
The procedure is simple and painless too. Implants are fitted under local anaesthetic, following which the titanium root gradually becomes fused to your bone, just as if you had a natural tooth supported by its original root. Once fully settled, this provides the firmest possible foundation for your replacement tooth or teeth. Because they are permanently fixed, implant teeth allow you to eat, speak and smile with complete confidence, allowing you to get back to making the most of life.
Although the cosmetic impact of a lost tooth is often people’s greatest worry, there are also risks to your dental health if gaps are not treated. Missing teeth, if not replaced promptly, may result in bone loss which can lead to the appearance of premature ageing in your face as a result of your jaw receding.
Dental implants halt the process that causes this by fusing to the jawbone and stabilising it, while also supporting the constant stimulation that your jaw requires to rebuild itself and stay healthy
As noted earlier, dental implants actually help to protect your remaining natural teeth. This is because bridges, for example, rely on support from the adjacent teeth and can sometimes cause them to them becoming compromised. Similarly, a partial denture relies on adjacent natural teeth for support, which can lead to damage and may even cause them to become loose over time.
Dental implants are stand-alone tooth replacements supported by a firm root and as a result, don’t rely on support from adjacent natural teeth. They are also suitable for replacing complete dentures.
Dental implants actually become part of your jawbone. Thanks to this, they effectively provide a permanent solution to tooth loss. While removable dentures, bridgework and other methods of tooth replacement may need to be replaced or remade over time, properly cared-for dental implants should last a lifetime.
Thanks to their longevity, our implant patients are able to restore their smiles and their confidence, making dental implants an excellent long-term investment not just in your appearance, but also in your health and wellbeing.
One of the big attractions of dental implants is that looking after them is no different than caring for your natural teeth. They really are a zero hassle solution. Your dental team will be happy to advise you on how to properly maintain your new smile.
If you have previously worn dentures, you’ll be pleased to know that you’ll never have to apply special creams and adhesives, or soak them in a glass overnight. This makes dental implants comfortable, practical and discreet – and as a result can really improve your self-esteem. As a replacement for dentures, patients can also benefit from an improved sense of taste and smell thanks to that palette no longer being obstructed.
