Would You Love a Long-Term Solution for Your Tooth Loss?
Lots of people have lost at least one tooth, while many are missing multiple teeth or all of their natural teeth. Tooth loss can result due to injury or disease and whatever the reason it is important to replace them as best you can. Perhaps our dentist in Basildon has already discussed suitable tooth replacements with you and if so then the question of your suitability for dental implants may have been raised.
Why Choose Dental Implants?
While there are alternative methods of replacing missing teeth that include dentures and bridges, dental implants in Basildon are often regarded as being the gold standard and there are lots of good reasons as to why this is the case. Firstly, dental implants help protect your remaining natural teeth by preventing them from moving out of position and preventing bone loss that could otherwise destabilise them. Unlike dental bridges our dentist in Basildon will not need to grind down teeth for support, and unlike dentures there is no need to adapt healthy teeth to hold clasps or special attachments. Instead, your dental implants will be self-supporting and this is one of the reasons why they can look amazing, especially when chosen to replace single teeth.
With a dental implant, your new tooth will look as if it is coming out of your gums just like a real tooth and it will feel very strong and stable. With dental implant teeth you will be able to bite and chew normally and our dentists at Felmores Dental Care take enormous care when planning dental implants to make sure they look incredibly natural.
This treatment is also very versatile. As well as replacing single teeth, two or more dental implants can replace multiple teeth by supporting an implant bridge. Do you currently wear full fitting dentures? Dental implants in Basildon may well be for you as a denture stabilised by dental implants cannot move or shift position so mealtimes will no longer be a chore and socialising can be pleasurable once more without the fear of loose teeth.
Who Can Have Dental Implants?
Dental implants are suitable for just about anyone. You will find our dentist in Basildon will want to carefully assess you prior to this treatment to make sure it is the best possible option. Requirements include being in good dental health and in reasonable general health as it is important for your implants to be able to heal properly within your jawbone. One thing that isn’t a problem is age and many older people have already benefited enormously from having dental implants in Basildon. We take a great deal of care when planning any dental implant treatment to ensure it is smooth and comfortable for you. This treatment is not the fastest way to replace missing teeth, but it has the potential to be the most permanent option. With the correct care, your implants should last for many years, if not for life.
