It sounds a little far-fetched to say that dental treatment can save your life. This seems even more questionable when the treatment in question is a titanium screw. You may think we’ve gone mad, but a titanium screw really can transform your smile. Want to know more? We’re happy to tell you everything you need to know!
The titanium screws we’re talking about are better known as dental implants. These specially designed appliances go inside the jaw bone to replace the tooth root. Titanium is biocompatible, which means that the implant is able to integrate into the natural bone tissue. Basically, this means the implant settles without disturbing the surrounding tissue, providing the same level of stability as a strong natural root.
Once implants are in place, we’ll attach the head to a new false tooth. One of the many benefits of implants is that they fit with crowns, bridges and dentures. This means that they are a viable choice for patients with varied dental needs. We can use implants to replace any number of missing teeth, and they are suitable for adults of all ages.
Dental implants offer you the chance to enjoy a beautiful, functional smile again when you’ve lost natural teeth. Even a single gap can affect your confidence as well as your dental health. With implants, we can restore your smile, making sure you look and feel great and reducing your risk of oral disease and speech problems.
Implants are different to other tooth replacement treatments because they are built to last for several years. They’re also more versatile, as they can connect to different types of restoration. Implants also help to prevent bone loss, which can occur as a result of ageing, and they improve facial appearance, as they provide support for the cheeks and lips.
