Having missing teeth can cause many oral health issues, as well as lowering your self-esteem. If you are looking for a more permanent option to help improve your smile, then Navan dental implants could be the option for you.
What is the process?
To begin this treatment, your dentist will have some initial appointments with you so they can pinpoint what exact problems there are with your teeth. This helps them to be able to give you the most accurate treatment plan and get the right shaped crown made for you.
In your first session, they will place the implant into the jawbone, and this can be left to heal for several months, or in some cases you will be able to go straight on to the next step.
Once the implant is healed and readily secured in the jawbone, a post will be attached to it using a small screw. After this, a custom made crown made out of metal and/or porcelain will be cemented or screwed into the post.
This process can possibly take a few months to complete, but it is well worth it in the end! Most patients love the results of dental implants because they will look and feel just like their natural teeth!
We understand that you may feel nervous about receiving this treatment, which is why dentists offer local anaesthetic so you are as comfortable as possible throughout the process. Any dental professional will do whatever they can to improve the experience for you.
The benefits of dental implants
A huge benefit that comes with dental implants is that you won’t have to worry about the types of food you eat, the implants are very durable and hold just like natural teeth.
Secondly, dental implants are easy to maintain, and can usually just be looked after by doing the usual oral hygiene method of brushing and flossing. Regular dental appointments are also recommended to make sure everything is keeping up as it should (just like with regular teeth).
Another benefit is that they encourage your bone to grow, as opposed to it degrading with tooth loss. This will also help to strengthen the area around the implant to improve stability, therefore improving comfort.
Having implants can also help to improve your facial structure. When you experience teeth loss, your face may start to sag a little bit, but when you have the implants in, this should be prevented.
One of the main benefits that patients love is that implants look and feel just like their natural teeth, and like mentioned above, it would take a lot of work to damage them due to their stability. So you can have a beautiful smile whilst not having to worry about them falling out!
These implants can last a very long time, which also makes them cost effective. With the right oral hygiene routine, they can last for 40 years! Meaning you won’t have to worry about your teeth for a very long time.
All treatments can carry risks, make sure you are aware of these before you begin. Your dentists will have all the information you need.
