Restore your smile and missing teeth with dental implants: the gold standard for tooth replacement
Do you miss the freedom of smiling and eating with confidence now that you’ve lost a tooth, a few or even a mouth full of missing teeth?
Are you put off by the thought of wearing dentures or compromising your healthy teeth to have a bridge fitted?
Thankfully today there is a more effective, longer-lasting solution in Milton Keynes: Dental Implants.
Dental implants have been around for several decades and in that time have become more affordable, versatile and widely available.
Here are 3 reasons why it’s worth considering dental implants in Milton Keynes to restore your missing teeth.
A complete restoration
Dentures and dental bridges only replace the crowns of missing teeth, filling the gaps in your smile but not the gaps beneath your gums.
This is vital to the health of your jawbone as your tooth roots transmit vibrations from the daily clashing together of your teeth as you eat, chew and talk.
Without these vibrations, your jawbone deteriorates putting the stability of your remaining teeth at risk.
Dental implants are small titanium screws which are placed into the jawbone to act as artificial tooth roots.
Replacement dental crowns are then attached on top, providing a complete restoration which preserves the health of your jawbone.
Dentures are prone to shifting out of place, especially when you’re tackling tough or chewy foods.
While they start out well-fitting, as the jawbone deteriorates, they lose suction to the gums, which is essential to their stability.
Meanwhile, the stability offered by bridges requires 2 healthy teeth either side of the gap to be ground down and should these teeth fracture of experience decay, your bridge can fail.
Dental implants, however, are firmly anchored into the jawbone and stimulate new bone growth to secure them in place and restore full chewing power.
Built to last a lifetime
With good dental hygiene and regular dental check-ups dental implants can last for several decades, even a lifetime, unlike dentures and bridges which require replacement every 5–10 years.
