Smile Again With Dental Implants in Yorkshire

297243_blogLosing teeth can be distressing, but with our amazing dental implants, you don’t need to worry about a lifetime of hiding behinds the lens or shying away from meeting new people. Dental implants are the closest prosthesis to natural teeth and they offer an incredible range of benefits, whether you’ve lost a single tooth in a fall or crash, or you have several missing teeth as a result of sports injuries, health problems or trauma.

What are dental implants?

Dental implants are small posts, which are made from titanium; they are implanted into holes in the jaw bone with the aim of taking on the roles of the missing tooth root. Dental implants are very clever because they integrate into the actual bone tissue and this provides the same level of stability and anchorage for a new restoration as a natural tooth root.

Dental implants are really impressive because they are compatible with different restorations and this makes them a good match for most patients. Implants can be attached to a dental bridge or crown for patients with one missing tooth, or a denture for those with a larger number of missing teeth.

Implant treatment involves two important phases, which take place months apart; this is because it takes time for the implant to integrate into the bone. The first stage is the fitting of the implant; this involves making a hole in the bone, which then becomes a socket for the implant. Once the implant is in place, the gum incision is closed and left to heal and the next stage of treatment takes place when the implant has fully integrated. At this stage, the restoration is attached and the new tooth is ready to use.

Dental implants represent a really effective, long-term tooth replacement treatment for patients of all ages. They look, feel and function like natural teeth, they last for many years and they are easy to maintain. They also produce gorgeous, natural smiles and they help to reduce the risk of bone loss.
