Dental Implants & Teeth Replacement
From the single tooth implants that replace individual missing teeth to full set fixed teeth replacement, dental implants (or tooth implants) are designed to look and feel just like natural teeth, thus helping to restore your smile and function, and may offer a renewed sense of confidence for many.
Your smile is the first thing people notice and a toothless smile can make you feel self-conscious and affect your self-esteem. But it’s not just the aesthetics that cause many to lack confidence. Those who wear dentures understand the problems and limitations with dentures in terms of function and the real possibility of a denture coming loose or falling out.
It’s unfortunate but it is not always possible to save a natural tooth. Many factors can contribute to tooth loss such as periodontal disease (gum disease), injury or accident, tooth decay, excessive wear, certain medications or poor oral hygiene.
Dentures were commonly used in the past to replace missing teeth. But whilst they might be cheap, their negative effect on a person’s quality of life and everyday function is quite often a far more significant factor.
