At Dentist on Glasgow, your general dentist for Whanganui, New Zealand may recommend dental implants if you are missing one or more of your teeth. Dental implants consist of titanium screws which are attached to your jawbone where the gap in your smile is and these act as artificial roots for your replacement teeth, which can be crowns, bridges or dentures. This means that your replacement teeth should be firmly fixed in place allowing you to feel more confident about your smile and continuing to eat and drink whatever you like.
What are the benefits to having dental implants?
Dental implants offer a reliable solution to replacing missing teeth. Titanium is known to bond particularly well with human bone and so they are securely attached to the jawbone once the bone has grown around them. This means that they should stay firmly in place like your natural teeth. The replacement teeth will also be made to look like any remaining natural teeth you may still have and this will mean that nobody will realise that you don’t have all of your natural teeth. You will be able to eat and drink as normal, and you shouldn’t have the anxiety of thinking that your teeth are going to loosen as you talk as they can do with dentures, for example. They should also be comfortable and you may even forget they aren’t your natural teeth! Dental implants are also very easy to maintain; you simply need to brush and floss as normal and your replacement teeth won’t get cavities!
A further benefit of choosing dental implants is that they can make some patients look younger and more fresh faced. When patients have missing teeth, they can sometimes experience a shrunken faced appearance. Once the implants are fitted, it adds structure to the face again, making it appear more youthful. Implants also protect any remaining teeth from over-exposure to bacteria and therefore reduce the risk of complications with the remaining natural teeth. They also protect your gums from issues as well. Not bad, hey?
