What You Can Expect From Dental Implants
If you’ve suffered broken or missing teeth then you may or may not have considered dental implants. In Richmond, London for example, Sheen Dental have been restoring patients’ smiles for many years using implant surgery and have a high level of success in this field; but what can you really expect to achieve? Let’s take a look.
Greater self confidence
Dental implants, look, act, and feel just like your normal teeth and another person would find it hard to tell the difference. They’re a permanent option to dentures and crowns and offer the wearer a hassle free experience. If you’ve suffered missing teeth, particularly those that are visible when you smile or speak, then it can really knock your self confidence. Implants therefore can boost self esteem and bring back that beautiful smile once and for all.
We’ve already said that if looked after, implants can be a permanent solution to your missing teeth problems, and for those that undergo the treatment, the realisation soon dawns on them that they no longer have to deal with dentures any more. This means no more soaking overnight, no more denture creams and no more worries about whether or not they might slip or fall out at any time. In fact implants are treated just the same way as your normal teeth and therefore a good brushing and flossing regime is all it takes to keep then healthy and looking as good as new.
Improved eating and speaking
Denture slippage due to poor fitting can make eating and speaking a real problem. Chewing can be challenging at the best of times and downright uncomfortable at worst, and slurring or mispronunciation of words is also common place. If you undergo surgery for dental implants in Richmond, such as at Sheen Dental or any other reputable clinic in the country, you know that you can eat and chew without feeling pain and discomfort, whilst also having the ability to speak precisely and confidently.
Better overall dental health
Unlike many types of full or partial dentures which require the use of nearby healthy teeth as support, a dental implant doesn’t rely on any other teeth. In fact all of your surrounding teeth will be left intact and therefore implants promote better overall dental health.
Increased strength and durability
Implants are made from titanium and the reason for this is because of its many qualities. Aside from the fact that it’s one of the few materials to induce the process of osseointegration (this is where bone tissue fuses with the titanium to produce a super-strong platform on which to affix the prosthetic crown) it’s also lighter than aluminium and pound for pound, stronger than steel. In addition it’s non-corrosive and non-allergenic. Therefore what you have is a form of tooth replacement that’s made to last.
