Knocked out teeth are not something any of us want to have to consider. They can be synonymous with gap-toothed smiles for many years, but now there’s no need to let losing teeth affect the rest of your life.
Not only can gaps in your smile be unsightly, but they are also detrimental to your overall oral health. Gaps can significantly change the way you bite, and can cause the jawbone to deteriorate.
So, if you have missing teeth, you should consider some type of treatment to have them replaced. Dental implants in Basingstoke at Glenholme Dental are a permanent solution to the problem, eliminating the need for dentures or other appliances – which can often need repairing over time. Although our dental implants in Basingstoke can last over 20 years, it’s always good to look at the decision from all angles, considering the pros and cons associated with the procedure.
The pros of having dental implants
Dental implants are different to other kinds of dental restorations, in that they are not just attached to the surface of the teeth, but are surgically grafted into the jawbone. They are incredibly hard-wearing because they are made from titanium, which is also resistant to rust and won’t cause infection.
The titanium post is the root of your new tooth. It helps the crown withstand the daily pressures of biting and chewing, enabling it to function as a normal tooth would.
Dental implants in Basingstoke also don’t require any wires, clips, or anchors to hold them in place. This makes them appear much more natural and allows them to blend in with the rest of the teeth.
Our dentists here at Glenholme Dental look upon dental implants as a huge leap forward in dental science, simply because they are almost as permanent as the real thing.
Our quality dental implants in Basingstoke can last many years if they are properly cared for. Other devices designed to deal with the issue of replacing missing teeth just can’t compete with dental implants as far as performance goes.
Not only will your new teeth from Glenholme Dental look and feel natural, they will also stimulate bone growth in the jaw, because they are firmly bonded with it.
