How tooth implants can restore missing teeth

Published on by . Categories under Dental Implants. Total of no comments in the discussion.

Do you feel embarrassed about having a tooth missing? Do you try to avoid family photos, because you feel self-conscious about your smile? You don’t have to suffer with low self-esteem due to your missing tooth. A tooth implant will provide you with a very natural looking replacement tooth that is permanently fixed into your mouth and will give you a complete smile again.

Tooth implants are anchored into your jaw by a titanium root. This prosthetic root behaves in the same way as a natural tooth; by holding the crown (a prosthetic crown in the case of a tooth implant) and by stimulating the jawbone underneath. The action of stimulating the jawbone is very important for your oral health. It prevents the jawbone from atrophying and causing the caved in look associated with traditional denture wearers, whose jawbones are not in direct contact with their replacement teeth.

How are tooth implants fitted?

As it’s easier to place tooth implants effectively when your jawbone is still healthy, you should ideally contact our dental practice here in York as soon as you lose your tooth, or at the least, as soon as you decide you want the implant fitted. During your appointment, you will receive a local anaesthetic to ensure the procedure is as comfortable as possible for you. The root will be placed in the jaw and a temporary crown added to the top. Your permanent crown will be attached after several months, when your jaw is healed completely.

When you have more than one tooth missing

If you have more than one tooth missing, you can have a bridge or full set of dentures fitted to fill the gap. The bridges and dentures will be secured into your mouth using tooth implants, allowing you to hang a full set of teeth on just 4 to 6 implants. Once the implants are in place, the prosthetic teeth will be held firmly in the mouth. They won’t accidentally fall out and shouldn’t even move around. Your dentist will show you how you can best keep them clean.

If you’d like to restore your smile to its former attractiveness, please give the reception team here at our practice in York a call. We’ll happily book you in for a tooth implant consultation and explain all the benefits you’ll enjoy on top of being able to speak more clearly and using your implants to chew your food. We look forward to welcoming you to our modern practice here in York.

As well as having a negative impact on your social life and personal development, it can be particularly detrimental to your career.

What Are The Benefits Of Dental Implants?

Published on by . Categories under Dental Implants, Dentures. Total of no comments in the discussion.

Dental implants are an established procedure that endeavors to prevent the oral health complications that can occur as a result of tooth loss. Each implant at Blossom Dental Care, York is produced with a titanium screw, which connects to the jawbone to substitute the root of the incompetent tooth. As implants are connected to the patient’s jaw, they provide a durable, strong foundation for artificial teeth. Despite having elements of titanium, our dental implants are carefully designed to look as natural and undetectable as possible.
