The power of a good smile cannot be understated. People appreciate a full smile and you feel all the better for being able to smile with confidence. If you’re missing a tooth, or multiple teeth, and want to improve your smile, then dental implants may be the answer.
A Long Term Solution
Dental implants are essentially substitutes for a natural tooth root. Each implant is precisely and carefully inserted below where you want your new tooth to appear, to ensure it stays in place, just like a natural root would. These implants can serve as either a support for a single tooth, or as the long-term support for more serious dental work like crowns, bridges and dentures. Looked after well, dental implants can last you a lifetime.
Depending on the location of the missing teeth, and the number of teeth being replaced, you may need multiple dental implants. However, one dental implant can often support multiple teeth, so invasive dental work can often be kept to a minimum if missing teeth are near one another.
No Need to Remove Them
Implants can largely be treated in the same way as normal teeth. They can be brushed and flossed in just the same way and there’s no need to remove them for cleaning. If you have good dental hygiene then you will likely be an excellent candidate for implants.
However, our daily lifestyle habits can negatively impact the rate of healing in your mouth after the implants have been put in. As such it makes sense to speak to one of our in-house experts about aftercare to ensure you take the right precautions after having implants fitted.
