If you have lost one or more of your teeth, whether due to accidents, gum disease or the natural effects of ageing, choosing implants from your dentist may be a good solution to restore your smile and appearance.
Reasons to consider dental implants from a cosmetic dentist
Missing teeth can lead to a number of problems, both practical and aesthetic. Food can become trapped in the gaps, contributing to the build-up of plaque and increasing your risk of gum disease and other oral health issues, and you may also feel a loss of confidence when talking to people. Dental implants can restore the appearance of your face and jaw as well as help you look younger and healthier. Compared to dentures, implants are more comfortable, and people with implants can enjoy unrestricted speech and diets. Your local cosmetic dentist will tell you this.
Types of implants
Most implants are made from titanium, making them extremely durable and effective at fusing with bone tissue. Implants are commonly fitted in root form, being inserted directly into the gums and jaw, but if the jawbone is too narrow for bone grafting, your dentist may insert a plate form implant instead. Your cosmetic dentist will be able to advise you on the most suitable type of implant for your situation.
