It is widely known that a confident smile can boost your self-esteem and leave a lasting impression on others. However, if you are faced with dental issues such as missing teeth you may be hindered from fully embracing your smile. Dental implants are a popular solution for replacing missing teeth, and they may serve you well as an option for filling any gaps.
Of course, there are other options as well as dental implants which can be considered as a way to replace your missing teeth. Which is the best treatment going forward for you should be decided with our dentists in Edgware. We can examine your mouth and teeth, chat through your dental and medical history and establish what the best option for your tooth restoration might be.
Dental implants are three part restorations including implanted screws, posts called abutments and the visible restorations (a crown or a denture). These screws provide a sturdy foundation for the visible replacement, which can be customised to match any remaining natural teeth. During the process of dental implant treatment the screws are implanted first and given time to heal. The function of the abutment rod is to connect the screw and the visible replacement and these are added to the screws once healing has been able to take place.
Dental implants are known to provide exceptional functionality. They are securely anchored into your jawbone with the titanium screw by our dentists in Edgware. This stability can allow you to continue to speak, and chew with your usual level of confidence, as dental implants function much like natural teeth.
Moreover, dental implants offer remarkable aesthetic results. These restorations which are attached to the implanted screws are designed to match your existing teeth as much as possible in colour, shape, and size. This customisation promotes a blending between your natural teeth and the dental implants, helping to create an even and natural-looking smile. With dental implants, our patients often regain their confidence, knowing that their smile appears natural and appealing to others.
Another advantage of dental implants is their long-lasting nature. With the proper care and maintenance, dental implants can serve as a permanent tooth replacement solution for your missing teeth. Furthermore, dental implants can help to promote better oral health. When considering cleaning around replacement teeth it’s possible that you might feel nervous about knocking them out. However, due to the root-like screws securely holding implants in place, you can brush and floss your teeth with confidence.
When a tooth is lost, the jawbone in that area can start to deteriorate due to lack of stimulation. Dental implants help towards preventing this bone loss by providing the necessary stimulation to help maintain the jawbone’s integrity and structure. Additionally, neighbouring teeth are not altered or compromised when dental implants are placed by your dentists in Edgware. This preservation of natural teeth contributes to good overall oral health and helps to make a strong foundation for the surrounding teeth.
