If you feel embarrassed about gaps or missing teeth dental implants may be the solution for you. Dental implantation is a method of replacing missing teeth which assists in re-establishing a person’s smile as well as helping to prevent further deterioration of the teeth. Dental implants are designed to provide a foundation for replacement teeth which look, feel and function like natural teeth.
Essentially, a dental implant is an anchor and basically can be thought of as artificial tooth root that is submerged into the jaw bone. Once it is firmly in place it allows the attachment of an artificial tooth or crown. A dental implant is made from a very durable material and after an initial healing period during which the implant is left undisturbed under gum tissue, it is uncovered and connected to a small post that secures and supports the artificial tooth or crown.
Benefits of Dental Implants
One of the biggest benefits in getting a dental implant from a Balmain Dentist is the preservation and prevention of bone deterioration of your facial structure. If many or all of your natural teeth are missing or compromised, there is no trigger to your jaw to encourage bone growth. This may cause immediate deterioration of the facial structure and wrinkles to develop around your mouth known as “marionette lines”. All of these can make you look older than you actually are.
Replacing Missing Teeth
At Balmain Dentist, we can restore any of your missing teeth with new and beautiful implants in as little as one single procedure. We can provide you with a solution that will last a lifetime for people with a smile that have been compromised due to missing teeth. You can start experiencing significant improvements in your ability to chew, the strength of your teeth and comfort overall. Note that the timeframe for each case will be different and you will know how long your appointment will take after consulting with us.
Even if you have a single missing tooth, you will benefit aesthetically from implant replacement compared to other approaches. Simply put, getting dental implants at Balmain Dentist can improve your overall appearance in the long run.
Matching Artificial Teeth To Real Teeth
By carefully selecting materials, artificial teeth are matched to the colour of the surrounding teeth, offering a natural looking solution for anyone with a missing tooth.
So whether you have lost a few of your teeth or just one of them, dental implants should be considered as an option to improve the function of your teeth and create a better-looking smile.
Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner.
