So why are dental implants used to replace missing or damaged teeth?
Well, they are the next best thing to healthy, natural looking teeth. A dental implant which is strong and stable will restore a lost tooth so it looks, fits and feels like a natural tooth.
They are built to last and they are a long-term solution and can last more than 10 years if they are looked after. Dental Implants may need some periodic adjustments but when cared for properly they can last a lifetime especially if properly placed by a fully qualified dentist like Anoup Nandra at Rock House Dental Practice.
They don’t interfere with eating your favourite foods, smiling, speaking and other activities of everyday life. They can protect healthy bone as leaving empty spaces in your mouth after losing a tooth can lead to additional issues and affect the jaw! Dental implants are the only dental restoration option that preserves and stimulates natural bone, actually helping to stimulate bone growth and prevent bone loss.
A face with missing teeth can appear sunken and sad. Dental Implants will allow you to maintain the natural shape of your face and of course your smile! Finally, no one will know the difference! You don’t need to hold back your smile due to missing teeth. You can enjoy life without worrying about your smile!
So we’ve told you all the benefits but how much will it cost?
Yes, something as amazing as a Dental Implant that is comparable to a natural tooth isn’t going to cost you pennies. You have to take into consideration that the cost of the treatment is only a little more than the cost of more conventional dental treatment such as crowns and bridges.
Over the longer term, implants are usually a more cost-effective and satisfactory option. Not to mention they are easier to maintain and live with (although you won’t notice any difference from your natural tooth), plus your dental treatment is purely focused on the missing tooth without filing down the surrounding teeth to fit it.
