Understanding dental implants in Golders Green

There are a lot of denture wearers in the UK, many of whom have reported different issues with the dentures they wear. From the dentures slipping out of position in the mouth to food being caught between the gum and the denture, we can be in no doubt that dentures are problematic for many who used them.

Here at the Garden Dental Practice, we have decided that offering dental implants in Golders Green will allow us to solve the issues associated with dentures for many of our clients. By offering a permanent, fixed in place solution we can give our clients a renewed sense of comfort when it comes to eating and drinking.

What are dental implants

The dental implants being offered in Golders Green by Garden Dental practice comprise two parts, that when combined and fixed in place can offer a realistic solution to tooth loss.

The first part of the implant is a titanium screw that is fixed into the jaw. This forms a sturdy base for the implant as well as helping to promote healthy bone growth in the area. The second part is a crown, normally made from a ceramic material, which is mounted at the top of the screw to form the replacement tooth. Blending the ceramic compound in a manner that achieves the correct shape and colour shade will allow the implant to blend right in with the rest of your natural teeth.

We have described the basic method used for a single tooth, this process changes slightly when using it to replace multiple teeth, such as with a bridge. For people looking for dental implants in Golders Green to replace multiple teeth, Garden Dental Practice can provide you with all the information you may need to understand the procedure required.

Real-world benefits

For people who have suffered tooth loss and may need to wear dentures, the benefits of implants may be something worth considering, especially if you are looking for a fixed, long term solution to the loss of a tooth or teeth.

Dentures, unlike implants are known for slipping out of position, this can cause discomfort and embarrassment to the wearer and those who may be around them at the time. Removing this slippage increases the self-confidence of the wearer when they are in the company of others.

Another common concern denture wearers may have involves the way the mouth area looks to others. Many become concerned about the denture moving around when they are talking to others or smiling, implants to address these fears head-on due to their fixed nature.

The cleaning process involved with dentures is another thing that wearers commonly dislike, as it can be complex and may make the wearer feel embarrassed. Once the implants are in place, they can be cared for in the same way we care for our natural teeth. Cared for correctly, implants can last a lifetime.
