Replacing missing teeth at Sheen Dental Implants
Tooth loss can have major consequences on different aspects of your life. To begin with, it can affect the appearance of your smile causing embarrassment, anxiety, sadness, lower self-confidence and lower self-esteem. It can affect others’ perception of you and it can affect your social life and professional life as well. Missing teeth can make you look much older than you actually are and it can change the appearance of your whole face. Missing teeth can prevent you from smiling as you would before and change your personality. Other consequences of missing teeth include more wobbly teeth, your remaining teeth try to fill the gap left by the missing tooth causing them to become crooked and wonky. You may not be able to eat all your favourite foods anymore and if you are missing front teeth you may find that your speech is even affected. You may not be able to pronounce all of your letters properly and this can be embarrassing and uncomfortable.
Missing teeth can affect your mental health and your overall well-being so it is important that you speak to us at Sheen Dental Implants as soon as possible so that we can put together a restorative dental treatment plan for you. We are specialists in restorative dental treatment and we prefer dental implants for replacing missing teeth. This is because dental implants have significant advantages in comparison to other restorative dental treatments. Firstly they are a permanent solution for tooth loss. Dental implants are made of titanium which is a biocompatible metal that integrates with the jawbone to become fixed into your mouth. It is non-corrosive and it is strong and sturdy and designed to last for the rest of your life.
Dentists have been using dental implants successfully since the 1960s. Here at Sheen Dental Implants we will carry out a thorough examination of your oral health to make sure that dental implants are suitable for you. Once in place, they are fixed, you do not have to worry about taking them out of your mouth or losing them. You do not have to worry about cleaning them. You simply look after your dental implants as you would your natural teeth. They look and feel like your natural dentition. No one will be able to tell the difference unless they know that you lost a tooth and underwent dental implant surgery. You can have a tailored crown or a set of fixed dentures to replace your missing teeth. This will restore the appearance of your smile and it will also restore the function of your mouth.
The process itself can take between four and six months so here at Sheen Dental Implants we recommend that you speak to our dentist sooner rather than later so that we can put together an individually tailored treatment plan for you. Some patients require bone grafting or a sinus lift before undergoing dental implant surgery and this can prolong the process further. if you wait to have your teeth replaced then this can also cause further complications. This is why you need to contact us at Sheen Dental Implants immediately and we can begin the process soon.
