You can still have a beautiful healthy smile even if you have missing teeth, thanks to the latest advances in restorative dentistry, the branch of dentistry that focusses on ways to replace missing teeth.
At Smile Design in Buckinghamshire, dental implants are offered as a way to bring back the healthy smiles that come from a full set of teeth. This is because dental implant technology replaces the root of the tooth, and not just the tooth, as dentures and bridges do.
Dental implants are tiny miracles of engineering that mimic roots. They are implanted into the jaw bone during a surgical procedure. Over the next several weeks as the bone and gums heal, new bone tissue, including blood vessels, grows around the dental implant, meshing with the implant, and thereby permanently stabilising it within the bone. The gums also grow back.
This is the reverse of what happens when a tooth socket is left empty. When this happens, as with dentures, the jaw bone loses density, the gums recede and the surrounding teeth start to move into the gap. All of which adds up to that aged, sunken-mouthed look associated with tooth loss.
Once the area around the dental implants have sufficiently healed, our cosmetic dentist at Smile Design, Dr Komal Suri, will be able to fix on beautifully-made, bespoke, artificial teeth that blend perfectly with the shape and colour of your own natural teeth.
Dental implants can be used to replace a single, or several lost teeth, and even a full set of teeth, on both upper and lower jaws. This is done either by fixing on single teeth, or permanent bridges.
And that is the beauty of dental implants, they do not have to be taken out and cleaned. Dr Suri will advise you on how to best take care of them in your mouth.
In order to benefit from dental implants in Buckinghamshire, patients need to be in good general health, and have sufficient jaw bone, as well as healthy gums.
