When you are missing several teeth if becomes impossible to install bridges. For many people dentures are a lot of work. This leaves dental implants as the best possibility for replacing a number of missing teeth. Dental implants are permanent and will last many, many years since they are often made of titanium. Implants have the advantage of have removable attachments which allow the exposed area of the artificial tooth to be replaced easily and conveniently whenever it is necessary.
The decision to get implants should not be taken lightly and should involve a consultation with your Leeds dentist to make sure the procedure is the best for you. It is hard to reverse a dental implant, and so once they are inserted they need to stay put. Implants are screwed directly into your jaw bone and become bonded with the surrounding living material, making extraction very difficult. But the great advantage is an extremely strong connection between tooth line and whatever type of false tooth that you want to attach to the top.
The procedure will likely be fairly long and the recovery may involve several weeks of discomfort. The rewards though may change your life. You will not have to worry about removing your dentures and you will not need to worry about the eventually degradation of other ‘permanent’ dental features. At your next check up ask your dentist whether implants may be right for you.
