If you have tried dentures or bridges in the past and they have just not felt 100% right for you, then try something that fully recreates the look and functionality of your natural teeth. Our team here at Ikon Dental Suite love bringing a smile back to peoples’ face and feel that, in Ealing, dental implants are the way to do just that.
Missing teeth can really have a serious impact on your life, and there should be no need to go through life feeling like you are missing out. Dental implants in Ealing can change that. Thanks to innovations in dentistry, a simple surgical procedure can start you on your way to becoming whole again. Missing teeth can have more of a detrimental effect on your life than just missing a pleasant smile though. Missing teeth can cause other teeth to shift, eating difficulties, or some extreme cases of facial muscles weakening.
How do dental implants work
Small, titanium rods are inserted into the jawbone. These rods actually mimic the root of a real tooth so they are definitely solid and made for long-lasting endurance. The jawbone then sets around the ‘root’, securing it firmly into place. This action has two purposes. Firstly, it secures the root for the carefully designed new tooth or teeth to be attached, and secondly, it also strengthens the jawbone. Jawbones without tooth roots in them can in fact deteriorate, so having this replacement root in the jawbone actually helps to maintain its strength.
Dental implants are not just restricted to one tooth either. If you are missing a few teeth, or even a lower or upper arch, then dental implants in Ealing can be used to correct these losses.
Dental implants are made to be long-lasting, and when they are maintained with a good oral health routine, they can last for decades. The crowns are fixed in place, so there is no need to remove them for cleaning or while you sleep. It can also mean there will be no embarrassing slip-ups.
So if all else fails, try dental implants in Ealing. A complete smile is a content smile.
