Tooth Implants In Essex
Missing a tooth can reduce confidence. Whether you are a man or a woman or at any age it can make you feel self conscious. Tooth implants in Essex can offer a number of benefits including-
A better facial appearance- As well as the obvious (ie a missing tooth) there is the danger that it can affect facial symmetry as the face sags in the area where the tooth is missing.
Less damage to teeth- The danger with some bridges that are fixed on the teeth is that they can cause stress on the teeth.
Cleaning is easy- It is just like brushing and flossing normally!
Better suited to your daily life- Unlike other treatments they are not going to come loose. This means you can exercise, eat any foods you normally like and so on without fear of anything coming loose.
More self confidence- This isn’t just hype! Studies have shown that people with dental implants are statistically more self confident than those without.
How effective are tooth implants?
A recent study showed that 96% of tooth implant procedures are effective. In nature the tooth is held in place by the root. With an implant this is made of metal but in effect replaces where the tooth would normally be, encouraging the growth of tissue and in effect replacing the tooth.
Dentists tend to use titanium because it is the most compatible with teeth. Once it is installed into the upper or lower jaw tissue grows around it and you can enjoy a complete mouth again.
Who can benefit from dental implants?
If you have a damaged or missing tooth dental implants can be used as an alternative to bridges or dentures. This is especially good for people who have prominent missing teeth but do not want dentures or bridges that could potentially get worn down or slip.
How do I get dental implants?
First of all you need to talk with us and get a Free consultation. We can do scans and look at your overall oral health to see if installing dental implants is appropriate for your personal requirements. Things like how the tooth was damaged and the length of time there has been a gap can affect whether or not the procedure is possible.
How long will the procedure take?
After an initial consultation additional scans and checkups may be required. Your dentist is there to help and can plan a schedule to suit your particular requirements. It is also vital to avoid eating or drinking six hours before the treatment.
Can smoking affect my implant?
While smoking is bad for your health in general people often forget the effect it can have on oral health. Discolouration of the teeth is a consequence of smoking but equally the damage it causes the mouth can lessen the chances of you being allowed implant treatment!
