The burden of missing teeth can be heavy; not only can you face a loss of confidence from the aesthetic change but a range of other dental problems can arise too. While dentures are a traditional solution, modern dentistry means that this is no longer all that is on offer. At PS Dental Care in Soho, dental implants provide a long lasting, reliable alternative that avoids some of the pitfalls of long-term denture use.
Dentures versus dental implants
Dentures can plug the gaps created by missing teeth but tooth loss can bring about a host of other problems that dentures do not address. Bone degeneration and receding gums are two common consequences of teeth loss that denture wearers may experience.
Dental implants are made of lightweight titanium formed into screws that are placed directly into the jawbone. This encourages bone growth and as a result, in the long-term, helps combat bone degeneration that leads to receding gums. This also means the dental implants will fully integrate into the jawbone, giving you a secure base for fitting replacement teeth. You can therefore also enjoy the immediate benefits of once again being able to eat whatever you fancy, without the worry of your replacement teeth shifting out of place.
What does the procedure involve?
At our practice in Soho, dental implants are fitted under local anaesthetic or sedation to make your treatment as comfortable as possible. After a period of healing, when your dental implants will integrate into your jawbone, you will be fitted with replacement teeth that are custom made to blend into the background of your existing teeth. The end result is a natural look and feel.
