Suddenly losing a tooth can be quite a shock. We may have 32 teeth, but each one plays a vital role in our body. We need our teeth to be able to eat, to speak clearly and as part of our smile.
If you are young and have just lost a tooth or two, you may now be realising how important your teeth are, and be wondering what is the best way to replace them. At Elmsleigh House Dental Clinic in Farnham, dental implants have a lot of important benefits. Lets take a look at some of them that are relevant to you:
Stable and secure
I am truly delighted with the results of my dental implants. The fit and look of them is so incredibly natural that sometimes even I forget which ones are the implants!! I cannot thank Tim and the team enough for everything and would highly recommend Elmsleigh House to anyone seeking to improve their smile!! Mrs Park, Berkshire
As dental implants in Farnham replace the root of the tooth as well as the crown, they give the crowns a stable and secure chewing base. It can support chewing pressures of 97kg or 200lbs, which is more than the average male chew. Dentures give you about a quarter of the chew you need, and often come with a list of great foods you will have to avoid. Securely fixed teeth also mean you will still able to speak clearly, and you will never have to go through the fear of having your teeth wobbling around in your mouth when you least expect it.
As dental implants are fixed into your jawbone and the crowns are custom-made to blend in with the rest of your teeth, no one else will ever know these are not your natural teeth, unless you choose to tell them.
Easy day-to-day care
With dental implants in Farnham, once your teeth are in, theyre in. You dont have to remove them to clean them. All you have to do is make sure you keep them free of plaque, as you do your natural teeth. Implant crowns cant decay, but advanced gum disease can cause the implants to come loose and fall out. Careful cleaning and regular visits to the hygienist and dentist are all that is required to take care of them.
If you take care of your implants, they can last as long as your natural teeth.
