All You Need To Know About Dental Implants

teeth implants

We believe in preventative dentistry so you can retain your natural teeth for years to come, however, we understand that this is not always the case as many people lose some or all of their adult teeth. If you have lost your natural teeth and are looking for ways to improve the comfort and appearance of your smile, why not consider dental implants?

Previous methods of replacing teeth involved dentures and flexible dentures which are often uncomfortable, impractical, and do not give the natural look that you want to regain. There’s nothing more inconvenient then having to repeatedly take out and put in your teeth and the embarrassment of them falling out! Save yourself this inconvenience and embarrassment by finding out how dental implants could improve your life.

 

What are dental implants?

Advances in technology have brought a new method of replacing teeth to the forefront of dentistry. Dental implants aim to give you back your smile and comfort by creating a permanent structure for teeth to be fixed to. They work by implanting small metal screws into the jaw so that crowns, bridges, and dentures can be secured onto them.

They act as the root of your tooth to give you a permanent and fixed set of teeth. Dental implants restore the function of your whole mouth such as your jaw bone, gums and teeth. The implants stimulate the blood vessels and the jaw bone to grow just as they would with natural teeth. When you lose teeth you also lose the surrounding bone, so it’s important to pursue surgery as soon as possible to restore the bone and blood vessels.

 

What does the procedure involve?

before dental implants

Dental implantation is a surgical procedure that involves being under anesthetic. Prior to the procedure there will be planning of your procedure based on dental x-rays and moulds to see the condition of your teeth and jaw. The dental specialists at Fiveways Dental will take into consideration any existing health problems and the condition of your existing teeth and jawbone before performing the procedure. There are a number of stages to this procedure and time needs to be allowed for healing in between stages.

 

What are the benefits?

Dental implants are revolutionary as they give confidence and functionality back to the lives of many. Unlike removable dentures, implants resemble the look of natural teeth, which is particularly important if you have crowns and bridges implanted alongside your own teeth. Dental implants also function like natural teeth as the titanium screw works the same way as the root of a tooth does and doesn’t decay like natural teeth do.

The durability and strength of the metal screws mean implants are significantly long lasting and won’t need to be replaced for many years if taken care of properly.  This makes them a very convenient way of replacing teeth as you won’t need to go through this surgery multiple times after.

They’re also fixed and secure which makes eating practical and convenient. You can eat a normal diet without the worry of your teeth becoming loose or falling out as removable dentures would. You can eat, chew and bite with confidence!

Your appearance and confidence will be significantly improved with dental implants, they allow you to lead a normal, happy life and give you that healthy, natural smile.
