It can come slowly, or it can be done in a matter of seconds, but losing a tooth can be a life altering experience. For those in this unfortunate scenario, removable dentures had previously been the solution. Thankfully more natural replacements have appeared in recent years, with dental implants arguably being the most effective and Straumann producing the most effective dental implants!
A dental implant is an artificial stand-in for the root part of your tooth. It is fixed into a pre-drilled socket in your jaw-bone and supports restorations that resemble a tooth (ie. crown, bridges). Implants often consist of titanium, a substance well tolerated by bone and which can integrate easily with the bone tissue. In essence, they are a metal post with a false tooth on top.
Dental implants offer a variety of improvements over alternate methods of tooth replacement (such as standalone bridges and dentures), with the biggest one perhaps being functionality: A dental implant will operate like a normal tooth, so you can eat without worrying about food being too hard or your gums becoming inflamed. A common problem with losing tooth is the occurrence of ‘atrophy’, that is the decay of the bone surrounding where your tooth used to be. Atrophy can eventually lead to a change in jaw shape. A dental implant, thankfully, can help prevent atrophy and in some cases can even encourage the growth of the surrounding bone
Straumann implants are the top implant choice of many dentists worldwide. Straumann improves on other brands of dental implant through its unparalleled ability to integrate with oral tissue. The mouth will also accept the implant very quickly, making the recovery time very quick. They also require only one placement surgery as it is not covered with gum tissue (which would normally be removed during a second procedure). Straumann implants can also anchor a variety of artificial tooth types down! If you would like more information on dental implants contact us at Harley Street Dental Studio in London today.
