How Will An Implant Benefit Me?
Dental implants are the next best thing to having your natural tooth. They feel like a tooth and are fixed, meaning that you will be able to eat whatever you wish and speak with confidence, knowing that they won't be dropping or sliding like dentures. You clean them just the same way as your natural teeth and so you can say goodbye to taking dentures out at night and soaking them next to your bedside.
Most patients with missing teeth and dentures have discomfort eating and are less able to chew hard foods. This can have a significant impact on health and confidence.
Many denture patients have trouble speaking with their denture. Some avoid laughing, talking and even eating in public for fear that their denture may slip.
Higher Risk Of Further Tooth Loss
Where a tooth is lost, the remaining teeth are at higher risk of failure than before due to extra loading during chewing. If a partial denture is worn, the adjacent teeth are at higher risk of tooth decay and gum disease. Where a bridge replaces missing teeth, the adjacent teeth are sometimes ground down to fit the bridge, then these teeth are at a higher risk of nerve damage and failure too.
Premature Ageing Of The Face
Where teeth have been lost, there is accelerated bone loss which can result in premature ageing as facial bone volume is reduced.
