When life gives you lemons, make lemonade with dental implants Golders Green!
There can be many reasons for having missing teeth: poor oral hygiene, medication, illness or an accident are just some of the reasons you may not have a full set of teeth. If you are missing one or more of your teeth, however, there’s no need to put up with it. You can have a beautiful smile again with dental implants Golders Green here at The Garden Dental Practice. We believe that it is important to complete your smile, not just because it is aesthetically better, but because it also protects your remaining natural teeth from further issues. Leaving teeth more exposed, because of gaps in your smile, can lead to further tooth decay as they are open to bacteria more. By filling in these gaps you are protecting any natural teeth you have, and the gums, from prospective decay and infection.
Dental implants: the way to a natural smile
If you are considering doing something about replacing missing teeth, then you may choose to come and see us at our practice, because we have dental implants Golders Green. This is a treatment which offers a natural looking smile, as well as a smile that functions as it once did with your original teeth. Dental implants Golders Green achieve this by allowing replacement teeth options such as crowns, bridges or dentures to be fitted into your mouth, without the need for them to be removed for cleaning. Instead they are firmly fixed into your mouth, just like your natural teeth.
Dental implants Golders Green consist of metal screws that are attached to your jawbone by allowing the mouth’s tissues to fuse with them. Once these screws are placed, we can then use them as posts to attach your replacement teeth to. The result is that your replacement teeth shouldn’t loosen at all. You should be able to eat and drink whatever you like, and talk as much as you want to, without having to worry about your replacement teeth loosening and giving the game away. Result!
What else is good about dental implants?
Aside from the fact that your implants shouldn’t move when you have them, they also function like a natural set of teeth, because all you need to do to take care of them is brush and floss as normal. This means that your maintenance of them should be easy and if you do this, alongside coming to see us for your routine check-ups, then you could have your implants for a lifetime! What’s more, you could also find that your implants make you look younger! Sometimes, when there are gaps in your smile, your face can lose its structure and become drawn. This results in ageing your face. However, by having implants fitted, this gives your face its structure back allowing the skin to relax and look smoother and fresher. It can definitely be a great bonus!
