It’s a horrible, sinking feeling when you sit up from a sports-related face crash to realise that it’s not just your nose that’s broken and your lip that’s split, but you are also spitting out bits of broken tooth. The whole tooth’s gone and it’s in too many pieces to go back into your socket. You are now looking at a lifetime with a missing front tooth, and you’re only 24. That’s 60 years.
So, what are your options? You can go through life with a gap, but the toothless look has never been considered stylish. You can get a tooth on a plate and find yourself clicking gently to yourself. You can get a fixed bridge and lose 2 more teeth to become buttress crowns. Or you can get a dental implant in Richmond and continue to have the same maintenance regime, no clicking, and never have to tell anyone you kiss that your front tooth is not real and you leave it in a glass of water by the bed at night.
It seems like a no-brainer of a choice, and yet people have been known to agonise over whether or not to get a dental implant in Richmond. It’s not the convenience, it’s the cost, that makes young people have to think twice.
A dental implant in Richmond is not the cheap option. Here at Sheen Dental Implants, one implant with one crown on it will set you back at least £950. However, we do have payment options that mean you can pay for your new implant on a monthly basis of £40 per month.
Advantages of dental implants
Dental implants are so lifelike that, once they are in place with a crown on, you can be forgiven for not remembering which one of your teeth is not real.
Maintenance is easy. You brush carefully twice a day to remove plaque, and also floss carefully around the gumline. You back this up with regular plaque removal sessions with the hygienist. This is all you need to do.
You can eat whatever you like.
You can expect your implant to last for at least 15 years, maybe decades.
