Losing one or two teeth can have a big impact on your life, especially if you are young and lost them in an accident or through infection. It might feel pretty depressing to be faced with several decades of the hassle, discomfort and embarrassment that can be associated with some solutions to missing teeth.

In the meantime, here’s some more information about dental implants to help you begin your decision-making process:
In Buckinghamshire, dental implants are tiny titanium posts that are screwed into the jawbone where the root of the missing tooth used to be. This is a minor surgical procedure, and afterwards, it takes some weeks for the gums and bone to heal. As they do so, the new bone tissue growth actually meshes with the new dental implant, holding it securely in place, just as it would a natural tooth root.
Once the dental implants have healed, which takes a couple of months at least, artificial teeth, custom-made to match the shape, size and colour of your own natural teeth, are screwed onto the posts.
Once in place, dental implants in Buckinghamshire can be treated just like the natural teeth they have replaced. This means that you can drink, eat, brush and floss as normal. And, the good news is that, as long as take care of them, dental implants very rarely fail, which means they can last for years. You may even completely forget that these teeth are not your own.
Dental implants in Buckinghamshire can be used to replace one, several or all of your natural teeth, and no one but you will be any the wiser.
