Most people agree that a missing tooth is not the most attractive feature and it is no surprise that dental implants – a treatment which replaces missing teeth – have become extremely popular in recent years. Dental implants are fine titanium rods, which are inserted into sockets in the jawbone. Once the implant has settled into the jawbone, a new crown can be attached and the tooth will look completely natural.
Dental implants have become very popular because they provide an extremely effective solution to the problem of missing or damaged teeth. Many people lose teeth, either as a result of an accident or injury, ageing or dental health problems, and dental implants look and function in exactly the same way as a natural tooth.
In the past, people with missing teeth were forced to choose between having a gap or dentures or a dental bridge. Many people are wary of dentures because they are associated with older people and most people still have the impression that they are uncomfortable and look unattractive. The design of dentures has come on in leaps and bounds over the course of the last decade and they are now more functional and more aesthetically pleasing than ever before. However, most people would still prefer to have dental implants because they function in the same way as a natural tooth, they do not require special care and they last longer.
There has also been an increase in the importance of aesthetics. People are more concerned with the way they look than ever before and many people view their smile as their most important feature. It is perhaps unsurprising then that so many people are having cosmetic dental treatment to get a perfect, Hollywood-style smile. The glossy A-list smile is becoming more obtainable to everyone, as prices are more competitive and dentists are offering payment plans. More and more dentists, all around the country, from Acton to Wycombe are also offering cosmetic dental services in addition to general dental treatments.
Accidents can happen at any time; teeth are lost and damaged all the time and for some people having a gap in their smile in not an option; aside from the obvious aesthetic impact, gaps also create problems with speech and are not good for occlusion. Having a dental implant will help to create a natural, attractive smile and this can, in turn, boost confidence and increase self-esteem. If you have a gap in your teeth and it affecting the way you feel about yourself, arrange to see your dentist to chat about having a dental implant.
