Visiting our dentist Soho on a regular basis, helps you maintain healthy teeth and gums and prevents early tooth loss. A significant percentage of the adult population in the UK are missing at least one adult tooth. If you want to avoid losing your teeth at an early age, then you need to visit our dentist Soho at least once every six months and you also need to visit the hygienist to have plaque and tartar removed from your teeth so that they cannot cause damage. Bacteria in the plaque and tartar release acids and toxins, which eat away at the enamel of the teeth, weakening them and causing tooth decay and gum disease. Tooth decay and gum disease are the main causes of missing teeth in adults. Visiting our dentist Soho regularly can help prevent cavities, tooth decay and gum disease from developing. Our dentist at PS Dental Care will advise on how you can look after your teeth better and carry out any dental treatment where necessary. For cavities you may need a filling if improving your dental hygiene is insufficient. If you have tooth decay, then you may need a root canal treatment and if you have gum disease, you may need root planing to remove plaque and tartar from the roots of your teeth or you may even require gum surgery. Our dentist will put together a suitable treatment plan for you.
Unfortunately, in some cases if you have avoided our dentist for too long there may be irreversible damage to your teeth. This means the tooth will either fall out, or you will have to undergo a tooth extraction. As a young adult, this can be very upsetting, embarrassing and even daunting. You will be pleased to know that there are many ways to replace your missing teeth and you are not alone. Tooth replacement options are available for you depending on your unique dental requirements as well as your personal preferences.
Dental implants with our dentist
Here, at PS Dental Care, the most popular choice of tooth replacement with our dentist and our patients is that of dental implants. Dental implants can replace your missing teeth for the rest of your life. This is because they are made of titanium, which is a non-corrosive, strong, durable, lightweight and biocompatible metal; it is accepted by the body with little or no adverse reaction. It becomes integrated into the jaw. This is because titanium initiates osseointegration. This is when bone cells form around the titanium implant and lock it firmly in place. Once in place, it can only be removed by fracturing the bone. This is why titanium is an excellent choice for dental implants. With dental implants, you can replace a single missing tooth, multiple missing teeth, or even all of your teeth if you wish to do so. Dental implants help you replace your teeth with a crown, partial denture or full denture, depending on your unique dental requirements. By speaking to our dentist, you can find out more about taking better care of your teeth, replacing your missing teeth and learn why dental implants may be the best way to do so.
