There are several ways that you can replace your teeth, and whether you wish to opt for removable dentures or dental implants in Harley Street, you will be left feeling much more confident and ready to smile at anybody and everybody that you see.
When your teeth fall out it is normal to feel overwhelmed. Not having teeth can leave people feeling incredibly self-conscious as they are unable to smile at others and may feel like they have to refrain from eating in public as they find it difficult to eat several types of food. These are not the only problems that can arise from having missing teeth. Your jawbone is extremely sensitive and once your tooth has fallen out and there is no longer a root in your jawbone, your jawbone will no longer be stimulated. This lack of stimulus can cause your jaw to weaken and disintegrate over time, leaving you with much more severe dental problems, as well as affecting your general health.
A Long-Lasting Solution To Keep You Smiling
Having tooth implants can prevent or resolve all of these problems that you are experiencing. An efficient and long-lasting way to restore your smile, whether you are missing one tooth or several you will be provided with completely natural looking false teeth and will no longer have to be concerned about the gaps in your smile standing out.
This treatment works by having a titanium screw placed into your jawbone where the root of your missing tooth would have been. A connector will be added to the top of the screw and your new teeth will then be attached to this. What appliance you require to replace your teeth will depend on how many teeth you have missing and what positions they are in.
A partial denture is used to replace several teeth that are all next to each other, whilst a bridge is usually used to restore two missing teeth that are on either side of a remaining healthy tooth that you have. If you are only missing one tooth then it is more than likely that a crown will be attached to your tooth implant.
When you need to restore a full set of teeth a full denture will be attached, but there are multiple different treatment options when it comes to replacing a whole mouthful of teeth. Your dental practitioner will be able to talk you through these options such as all-on-4 and ‘same day teeth’, and will be able to recommend which treatment is most suitable for yourself.
Removable Dentures Can Restore Your Entire Smile
If you are looking to restore a full set of teeth but wish to have a more inexpensive treatment, then it might be time for you to consider removable dentures. These are usually available on the NHS, but everybody’s circumstances are unique and some people will opt to go privately.
These dentures rest comfortably on the tops of your gums, but they may take a few days to get used to. They look completely natural and give you back your ability to smile and show off an even full set of teeth again, making you feel much more youthful. You will be able to chew confidently again too, although it can be difficult to eat things such as chewy toffees.
