Are dental implants suitable for me?

Have you lost a single tooth, multiple teeth or have dentures that have begun to slip, rub and feel uncomfortable? If you have answered yes to any of these questions, then dental implants in Pinner are certainly a suitable solution for you.

There is no upper age limit when it comes to this treatment and depending on your situation there are a variety of methods that can allow even the trickiest of patients to enjoy a new lease on life again.

Imagine not having to hide your smile away self-consciously in fear that someone will notice a large gap in your smile. Imagine not having to worry about what foods you can eat, not having to remove a bridge or false teeth before sleeping or deal with pain from constant rubbing from an ill fitting plate.

This procedure utilizes a metal rod that acts as a replacement tooth root, doubling as a remedy to a receding jaw that is a common issue with many people who have lost any number of teeth. These metal rods can hold up to four teeth or in the case of denture wearers, a system dubbed as all-on-four has been designed giving the need for only four teeth implants to be placed into the mouth, two on the upper jaw and two on the lower jaw, to hold an entire set of dentures in place permanently.

What are the benefits of this procedure?

There are more benefits than just feeling better on the inside. We believe that you will feel more confident with your new smile, but we would like to focus on the physical benefits it can provide in this point in time.

For those of you who have lost just a single tooth or a few teeth, you might be offered this procedure relatively quickly after healing from the injury or infection that you have suffered from in order for your body to accept the change without delay.

The quicker you can provide a secure and permanent replacement to your lost tooth, the less exposed your gums are to further infection, the less exposed surrounding teeth are to bad bacteria, plaque and subsequent decay and the less exposed your jaw bone is to deterioration.

Dental implants in Pinner are able to improve the health of your mouth by completing your set of teeth again in a natural looking and permanent way. You can eat and brush your teeth as you did normally. There are a few cleaning tips that we recommend that you follow in order to prevent infection at the site of the implant. We also recommend that you allow your hygienist to professionally clean the area with specialised tools when you visit them.

If you have worn dentures for a long time, you may have noticed that over time, your dentures do not fit as they once did. This is because your jaw bone recedes when it is no longer stimulated by the action of your teeth chewing and grinding your food.

A replacement tooth root is the only option that provides this stimulation synthetically, allowing you to keep a youthful face structure for longer.

Come and talk to us today about your options so that we can find a solution together to improve the health and appearance of your smile.
