Dental implants are a long-term treatment for missing teeth. The implant, which looks similar to a screw, is designed to replace the root section of the missing tooth. Once it is integrated into the jaw bone, it can support a crown, denture or dental bridge. Single implants support crowns and are used to replace a single missing tooth. They are most common among younger people who have lost teeth through accidents or injury.
Dental implants are a very effective means of replacing missing teeth. They function exactly like natural teeth and once a crown is attached to the implant, the tooth looks exactly like a natural tooth. The procedure to fit an implant involves making a small incision in the gum, lifting a flap of gum tissue and drilling a small hole in the jaw bone; this acts as a socket for the implant. The implant is fixed into the hole and then left to heal and integrate with the bone tissue. Once it has integrated fully, the crown is attached and the tooth looks like all the other natural teeth.
Single implants tend to be most popular among younger people who have lost teeth through accident or injury. Implants replace the missing tooth and restore function to the mouth, as well as creating an attractive smile. Older people, who have perhaps lost more teeth as a result their teeth becoming weaker over the course of time, may be advised to have dentures, especially if they are conscious of budget. Dental implants are expensive but they last a lifetime. Therefore, for somebody who is only young when they lose a tooth, they are a worthwhile investment.
It is always a good idea to replace missing teeth for aesthetic and functional reasons as they can increase the risk of dental diseases. If you would like to treat your missing teeth please contact Sparkle Dental Boutique near Acton for more details.
