Dental implants: a smile is worth a thousand words!

The importance of a friendly smile cannot be overestimated. You can use a smile to comfort someone, enjoy a humorous joke, make new friends, put somebody at their ease - the list goes on! However, if you have missing teeth, you may be reluctant to smile freely and this could have an impact on your self-esteem, as well as your relationships with other people. What’s more, missing teeth have been linked to other health issues, so it is important to replace them and take care of yourself. Dental implants Golders Green provide a treatment we offer that allows you to replace your missing teeth and have a natural looking and functioning smile.

What does having dental implants involve?

Dental implants Golders Green consist of metal screws that are attached to the jawbone and act as a post for your replacement teeth of crowns, bridges, or dentures to be attached to. These will be securely fitted as the body’s tissues heal around the gums and stop the dental implants from moving, which means that you will be able to have replacement teeth that can withstand eating anything and are staying put, while you do all the talking! They should therefore act like natural teeth and they are equally easy to maintain. Like natural teeth, all you need to do is to brush, floss and have routine dental check-ups. If you are able to keep up with this routine, then your dental implants should last you a lifetime, as should any remaining natural teeth that you may have.

What are the other advantages of choosing dental implants Golders Green?

If you don’t fancy taking your replacement teeth out at night or for cleaning them, then dental implants are the treatment for you. You will be able to have them in your mouth permanently, so there should be no need to worry about your teeth loosening. You will also have your dental implants in your mouth and nobody will realise that they aren’t all your natural teeth. We will ensure that your replacement teeth complement your other natural teeth, as well as each other.

Another benefit of choosing dental implants is that you are protecting your gums and any natural teeth you have left from being over-exposed to bacteria and developing further dental issues. You could also find that your speech improves by having no gaps in your smile. It is possible to find that chewing your food becomes easier and that you don’t have jaw pain any more if you have experienced this whilst having missing teeth. You may even start to look younger as the face can become more aged when there are missing teeth. By replacing them, you add structure back into your face and this can help you to look younger, without surgery!
