If you have lost any of your original teeth, or are close to doing so, it can be a frightening, sobering experience. A gap in your smile can cause even the most confident individual to feel self-conscious, and to hide their smile from the world. Luckily, there is a solution.
Dental implants from Newcastle Dental Care offer a tooth-replacement solution that looks, acts, and feels just like its predecessor. Held in place with a screw inserted in to your jawbone, and coloured to match up with your existing teeth, a dental implant can save your smile.
The procedure begins surgically, when a titanium screw is inserted in to your jawbone. The screw is then allowed to ‘set’ for six months, as the bone grows around the screw, strongly securing it in to place. Once it is fully secure, your new synthetic tooth – modelled strongly after its peers – is mounted to the top of the screw. These teeth are strong and durable, and will last as long – or longer – than your natural teeth.
But the advantages don’t stop there. The loss of a tooth can cause bone disintegration around the hole left behind, a condition that can hurt the definition of a your jawline, and impact upon your quality of life going forward. But a dental implant encourages your jawbone to ‘knit’ around the screw, preventing any bone loss, and preserving more than just your smile.
If you’re looking to fill a gap in your teeth left by a lost tooth, a dental implant from Newcastle Dental Care can help you grin again. Contact us to find out more.
