Articles A Great Solution For Patients In London With Missing Teeth
Missing teeth can be problematic for a number of reasons and we always recommend replacing missing teeth. We are delighted to offer clients the latest and best dental implant treatments.
What are dental implants?
Dental implants are a tooth replacement treatment; the implant is a tiny titanium screw, which is placed into a pre-drilled socket in the jaw bone and then left to heal. Implants fuse with the bone in a process called osseointegration and once this is complete, the implant can be attached to a crown, denture or dental bridge. The aim of the implant is to replace the root of the missing tooth.
Why is it important to replace missing teeth?
Missing teeth cause aesthetic and functional problems; gaps in your smile tend to make your smile look less attractive, which can affect your confidence and they also make it more difficult to speak clearly and chew your food properly. Gaps also cause the remaining teeth to move out of position and they can also increase the risk of oral health problems such as gum disease and decay, as bacteria tend to collect around the empty sockets.
Why should I choose dental implants?
We consider dental implants to be the best long-term solution for missing teeth; implants are more expensive than dentures and dental bridges but they last much longer and they provide excellent aesthetics and improved functionality. Dental implants are very versatile and they can replace any number of missing teeth. Once the implant has integrated into the jaw bone, it can be attached to a single crown, a dental bridge or a denture.
Dental implants do not interfere with the gums or the remaining natural teeth and they also help to reduce bone loss.
How much do dental implants cost?
The cost of dental implant treatment varies according to the type of implant and the number of implants that are required; we can give you an idea of cost during the consultation stage at Harley Street Dental Studio in the heart of London.
