Dental implants like new teeth

Dental implants are the next best thing to real teeth.

There are many reasons to replace missing teeth.
The first is that missing teeth can affect speaking and chewing.
If a missing tooth is not replaced, the teeth around it can move, which can affect the person’s bite and place more stress on their teeth and jaw joints.
Teeth that have tipped or drifted are also harder to clean, which puts them at a higher risk for tooth decay and gum disease.
Also, bone loss can occur around the missing tooth.
Finally, a missing tooth can obviously have an adverse impact on someone’s appearance to others.
A solution to missing teeth is a dental implant. Nothing replaces natural teeth but dental implants can come close.
In use for many years, the implants look and act like natural teeth. They also fit securely even when chewing and speaking.
A single tooth implant does not involve treatment to other teeth.
The way implants are placed depends on the patient, the type of implant and the tooth being replaced. Some implants require two or three appointments, while others sometimes takes longer.
Anyone considering an implant should first discuss the right type with a dentist.
Norlane Dental Surgery offers free appointments to discuss implants with a dentist.
