Dental implants – Still unsure?

Do you have missing teeth? Are you still unsure if dental implants are the right option?

In order to help ensure that you have the information you need to make an informed decision the team at Teeth and Smiles have put together a list of the key benefits of dental implants.

Dental Implants Prevent Bone Loss

When you lose teeth, you also lose bone mass in your jaw. Your jawbone needs the stimulation it gets when your teeth connect to maintain its mass. Dental implants are the only tooth replacement option that also replaces that jawbone stimulation, helping to prevent bone loss.

Dental Implants Match Your Natural Teeth

Your dentist will work with you to design dental implants that match the colour of your surrounding teeth and fit perfectly in the gap. No one but you and your dentist will know which teeth are dental implants.

Dental Implants Enable Natural Speech

Some tooth replacement options, like dentures, can impact your ability to pronounce words correctly. Missing teeth can also alter your speech. Because dental implants feel and function just like natural teeth, they enable you to speak easily and naturally.

Dental Implants Will Not Get Cavities

The material that dental implants are made of can’t decay. This does not mean that they do not need to be cared for. It is important to follow a good oral hygiene routine to prevent plaque, calculus and bacteria from building up in your mouth and causing infections and gum disease, but you’ll never have to worry about getting cavities in your dental implants!

Dental Implants Are Easy to Care For

Taking care of dental implants is easy! Just brush and floss like you normally would. Dental implants do not require you to buy any special products to clean or care for them.

Dental Implants Will Not Slip

Patients with dentures sometimes feel self-conscious about speaking, laughing, or eating in public, as dentures can visibly shift or slip inside your mouth. Dental implants are firmly anchored in place and will never embarrass you.

Dental Implants Support Adjacent Teeth

A gap in your mouth caused by a missing tooth can cause the teeth on either side of the gap to shift positions, leading to misalignment. Dental implants fill the gap, allowing you to maintain a straight, even smile.

Dental Implants Provide A Permanent Solution to Tooth Loss

Other tooth replacement options will need to be repaired or replaced periodically, but dental implants are designed to last for at least 10 years.

If you need a tooth replacement option, you should definitely consider dental implants. To find out if you’re a good candidate for dental implants, call Teeth and Smiles today on 020 7352 7049 to schedule a consultation.
