What are dental implants?
While you may have heard about dental implants, it is understandable if you don’t know exactly what is involved. When you have missing teeth, they can be replaced with crowns, dentures or bridges. Crowns are typically used to replace a single tooth, whereas bridges are used for multiple missing teeth. Dentures are also used to replace a whole set. With dental implants, the replacement teeth options are the same, but the difference is that they are fixed into your mouth using metal screws that are attached to the jawbone and fuse with the body’s tissues. The replacement teeth are fitted to the screws and should then remain permanently in place. This can allow patients to have teeth that function like natural ones in that they don’t need to take them out and they shouldn’t loosen when talking or eating.
Why should I choose dental implants?
Dental implants are a savvy option for patients who want functional replacement teeth that won’t loosen when eating and drinking, or when talking. Our practice has treated many patients with dental implants Wagga, because patients realise that all they need to do to look after their implants is brush and floss as normal, as well as keep up with routine dental check-ups. There is no need to avoid eating chewy or hard food and, by looking after your teeth, you could find that your implants last you a lifetime too.
Another benefit of choosing dental implants is the protection they give to remaining natural teeth. If you have gaps in your smile this exposes them to more bacteria, but by replacing the missing teeth you remove this over-exposure. Some people also find that when they have missing teeth, they can experience a shrunken face; by having dental implants Wagga, this can add the structure back into your face and you could have a more youthful appearance.
