With the vast majority of Covid restrictions now lifted, most people are embracing the opportunity to get out there and make the most of life. But if you are one of the millions of Brits who suffer from missing teeth, you may well be feeling a little less enthusiastic about the idea of getting out and socialising. A significant number of British adults experience anxiety because of a lack of confidence in their appearance, and for a vast majority, this is related to their teeth. Luckily, dental implants now offer an attractive, long term solution to missing teeth that can help you to unlock life once again and embrace freedom. Read on to discover more.
There are many reasons to choose dental implants. One of the biggest attractions is that they are effectively a permanent solution for missing teeth. Unlike other approaches that have been traditionally used such as bridges and crowns, they do not compromise any otherwise healthy teeth, and are suitable for almost every patient. But perhaps more importantly, they leave you with replacement teeth that look and feel so natural you’ll soon forget they’re not.
We’ve been using dental implants to transform smiles and transform lives for over 35 years. For most of our patients, missing teeth have a significant impact on self-confidence, which has far-reaching consequences in both their private and professional lives.
Those who have chosen to have dental implants have reported a huge boost in self-esteem, which has helped them to regain the confidence to get out there and demand more from life.
Dental implants also offer tremendous benefits for those who have previously relied on dentures. Not only are implants far more comfortable and less hassle, they also eliminate obstruction of your soft palette, so that your food tastes better.
Nobody wants to age quickly. But did you know your teeth play a key role in keeping you looking younger? If missing teeth are not replaced, your jawbone experiences less stimulation when you chew, and can gradually recede. Over time, this can begin to change the appearance of your face, leaving you with premature signs of ageing.
Luckily, dental implants halt this process before it begins. Not only will you be able to flaunt a confident smile, you can be assured that you’ll also be smiling with confidence for years to come.
Dental implants are not just superficial – the process involves replacing the missing roots with an artificial root, which is made from bio-compatible titanium which actually bonds with your jawbone. Because of this, the strength of your jaw is fully restored, meaning that the risk of losing other teeth due to weakness in the jaw is significantly reduced.
It is, however, important to note that your new implants will need to be looked after in the same way as your natural teeth to ensure maximum lifespan – but don’t worry, your dentist and hygienist will work with you to make sure they get all the care they need.
If the only thing holding you back is your finances, why wait – our smile now pay later dental finance means you can set yourself free today and spread the cost with affordable monthly repayments.
