Are you lacking in confidence when you are laughing or smiling in social situations? If the answer is yes it may be time to make a little trip to your cosmetic dentist. As we get older it can become harder and harder to maintain the perfect smile and this is where a good dental clinic can help, especially if you are situated in London. But just where do you begin if you want a nice straight, whiter than white smile which is full of confidence? There are a whole host of options which are available.
One of the dentistry procedures which come in various forms is that of dental implants. Your dentist may suggest these to you if you have been suffering from tooth decay or possibly even knocked out a tooth in an accident or due to a sports injury…..but don’t panic! Modern day implants offer a solution that looks like your natural teeth and, through modern-day dental technology, have the ability to last for a very long time….helping you to get your confidence back!
Out with the old and in with the new
We all love a bit of retro and vintage in our life, but not when it comes to artificial teeth! But no need to worry, replacing missing teeth has come a long way from the 1970s! But just how does this procedure work? Well, first a very small, but very strong post, usually made from titanium, is surgically positioned into the jaw bone under the gum and then the artificial tooth is mounted on to this structure. It is possible to replace a single or a number of teeth with implants by attaching more than one replacement tooth to a single implant, providing normal functioning teeth and a much brighter smile! You will probably have to have a couple of visits to your dental practice before the actual procedure of your replacement teeth takes place, as the parts needed take some time to prepare.
Caring for your new beautiful pearls
Caring for your artificial teeth is easy, simply ensure that you brush twice a day and floss or use alternative interdental cleaners also to prevent bacteria and plaque building up. Dental implants actually promote healthy bone growth and they integrate with the bone too!
And say cheese ….
Laughing and smiling are joyous parts of being human and nobody wants to live a life of feeling insecure about opening their mouth because they have missing or damaged teeth. Thankfully through modern dental innovation and technology, everyone can reap the benefits.
With regular checks on your new teeth from your dentist and a good oral hygiene regime from yourself, there is no reason why your new smile cannot last for many years.
So, do not be afraid to make the most of all the options available to you regarding replacing your teeth and continue to eat, drink, laugh and make merry with your brand new set of pearly whites!!
