Here at Ikon Dental Suite in Ealing, dental implants are the closest things to real teeth that you can get. The question is, how do you know if you need dental implants or not?
Are you missing one or more teeth?
Tooth loss can happen for many reasons, tooth decay, impact accidents, or gum disease to name a few. If you have lost one or more teeth, you could be a good candidate for dental implants in Ealing. If you’re after a comprehensive solution to your missing tooth or teeth, dental implants in Ealing are worth serious consideration.
Do you hate wearing your dentures?
Ok, dentures aren’t particularly comfy. They slip around in your mouth, and probably remind you of your grandparents. If you hate wearing dentures, you are probably a good candidate for dental implants in Ealing. Bin the adhesives and forget about waking up to the sight of your teeth in a glass. Your new implanted teeth will be with you for many years, safely inside your mouth, just like your original own–grown teeth were once upon a time.
Do you have a rotten tooth?
If you have a rotten tooth, still securely rooted inside your mouth, you may be a good candidate for a dental implant. Of course, you will need the rotten tooth removed first, and your oral health will also need to be carefully assessed.
Do you hate your dental bridge?
Dental bridges are the old school, tooth replacement option. However, they don’t have the advantages of dental implants in terms of jawbone health, ease of cleaning, longevity or the aesthetic advantage of dental implants. Dental implants are an obvious alternative and are often the better choice.
Warning for smokers or those with gum disease
Perhaps you have decided that dental implants are the way forward by now. If so you will next have to consider two things. Firstly, if you have gum disease the problem will need to be solved before you begin with implants as the risk of infection following an implant procedure goes up considerably if you have an active infection. Similarly, smokers must quit before they undergo the procedure as it can also lead to infection.
