If you have any missing teeth, or need to have teeth removed, you can feel daunted by the idea of living with gaps in your smile. You may also feel anxious about what can be done to remedy the situation when you think about your grandparents’ clacking false teeth that used to slip when they were talking – nobody wants to see that, especially in your mouth!
Thankfully, at CDIC, we have a solution to missing teeth that provides the closest feeling to permanent teeth. With implants, we can provide you with a smile that has a variety of advantages and that will leave you feeling confident and capable of acting normally in any situation. You can laugh out loud whenever you want to – but may be not in libraries and cinemas!
Giving the lowdown on dental implants in Stockton
The first thing to know about implants is that they are composed of titanium screws which are attached to your jawbone and act as artificial roots for your replacement teeth, which can be either crowns, dentures or bridges. The titanium bonds with your bone and embeds into the jaw securely, meaning that you have the stability to attach your replacement teeth to. Once the replacement teeth are attached, people won’t realise that you don’t have your natural teeth – that’s definitely something to smile about.
What other advantages are there?
At CDIC, we specialise in dental implants Stockton and we firmly believe in them as alternatives to your natural teeth, if they are the right course of treatment for you. There are so many reasons to consider them alongside the stability they provide allowing you to eat and drink what you like, you can have that steak well done! When patients have missing teeth, they sometimes experience shrinkage of the face. Because of this, once they have implants, they regain structure to their face providing them with a more youthful appearance. When natural teeth are left exposed, they can also be at risk of bacterial and gum disease; with implants fitted, you are protecting your remaining natural teeth, as well as your gums, from any further complications. Looking after your implants is really easy too; all you have to do is brush and floss regularly, keeping up with regular dental check-ups. If you do this, it’s very possible that you may never need to replace your implants.
Implants are also aesthetically pleasing. They look like your natural teeth and in some cases, can be fitted on the same day as having your natural teeth removed. Having implants fitted is done under local anaesthetic, so it isn’t a major procedure either. There are just so many reasons to consider implants and gain the confidence and convenience of the smile you deserve to have.
