In this article, we’ll talk about dental implants Leicester and hopefully answer any concerns that you might have.
Before we go ahead with explaining how the implants work, we want to reassure you that we’ll take a look at your mouth, jaw, gums and teeth before we advise or go ahead with the treatment. No matter how many teeth you’ve lost, we have the option for single or multiple implants, meaning that you do not have to worry that this option isn’t right for you. During your consultation, we answer any and all questions you might have while also checking the health of your gums, tissue and the amount of bone present. Even if you have a reduced amount of bone available, we can work with this! We want this transition to be as smooth as possible, so we will spend plenty of time planning and talking through your treatment.
How do they work?
Implants are titanium metal screws that are installed into your jaw to effectively replace the root that you are missing. From there, we are able to place the artificial tooth on top of the implant, making sure that they’re in securely before you leave the practice. It is essential that you take care of your fake tooth as if it was a real one, to protect it from food and buildup in the mouth. The better you take care of them, the longer they will last!
What are the benefits
There are a variety of benefits of the implants, but the one we think you’ll be happiest about is how the artificial teeth are made to look and act exactly like your real teeth. We will make sure that the shade of the fake tooth is similar to your real teeth and won’t look out of place. You won’t have to change your diet when eating, as the implants are secure, but it is important to clean them thoroughly.
Once the implants are installed, they will begin to fuse with the remaining healthy bone and almost immediately begin to offer support. This will stop the rest of your teeth and jaw from moving as well as stimulate healthy bone growth.
