What are Dental Implants? What are the beneﬁts of having Dental Implants? Your questions answered.
Dental implants are the only permanent solution to tooth loss. They function like real teeth and can help improve your speech, ability to chew as well as preventing facial disfiguration, further bone and tooth loss. We use only the highest quality materials to ensure an exceptional success rate so that you can have the smile you’ve always wanted.
Restore the clarity of your speech
The flow of air into your mouth affects your ability to speak, so any tooth loss or gaps in your smile can affect your pronunciation which can lower your confidence and self-esteem. Dental implants feel and work exactly like the missing teeth they replace therefore helping to improve your speech and pronunciation.
Eat what you like: nuts, apples, steak...
If you’ve suffered tooth loss or wear dentures, then it can affect your ability to chew properly and can alter your diet and nutrition as well as undermine your confidence. It may be difficult to eat certain hard foods such as apples, crusty bread and steak. Having dental implants is exactly like having your teeth back, meaning that you need not worry again about what types of food you eat.
Prevent bone loss and jaw bone shrinkage
When a tooth is lost the jawbone beneath it begins to shrink and can become brittle through lack of use. The deterioration of the jaw along with weaker cheek muscles will cause the shape of your face to change. Dental implants can help prevent bone loss and jawbone shrinkage. The longer the tooth is missing the more likely it is that you may need a bone graft to ensure there is enough jawbone for the dental implant to be fixed into.
