Can you imagine being able to eat your favourite foods without having to think about it first? How would it feel to be proud of your appearance and smile when you look in the mirror? Losing your teeth leaves gaps in your smile and affects the shape of your face, as there is nothing to support your cheeks and lips from the inside. Remaining teeth may also become unstable as they can tip or drift out of position. For over 28 years at Elmsleigh House Dental Clinic, we have been seeing how people have benefitted from having dental implants in Farnham.
What are dental implants?
Dental implants are small titanium screws that are inserted into the jaw during a minor surgical procedure. As the tissues heal, the blood vessels and bone mesh around the metal, holding the implants in place. When they are secure, the implants are used as a base for a single replacement tooth, a bridge of several teeth or a full set. Your new teeth are carefully made to suit the colour and tone of any remaining teeth and the shape of your mouth, so the result will be very natural. For our patients in Farnham, dental implants are a long-term investment as, if cared for correctly, they can last several decades.
What are the advantages of dental implants?
When you have dental implants in Farnham, you will benefit from a secure, permanent solution so you can enjoy a full diet, smile with confidence and speak normally again. Another major advantage is that implants stimulate the bones of the jaw in the same way as natural teeth when you bite and chew. This avoids the tissues shrinking back, which happens when you have gaps or use dentures. There is also the visible benefit of having a beautiful smile to enjoy again. Most people opt for their replacement teeth to be permanently fixed, but you can choose to have bridges that are removeable. Special connectors ensure that they are secure when they are in place, but it is a good option if your budget is restricted.
