So why would someone require a dental implant?Many of us would like to think that our teeth will last us our entire lifetime however this is not always the case and this is where you may require the skills, experience and expertise of our implantologists at the Marylebone Implant Centre. There are various reasons why someone would require dental implants and here are a few of those reasons which we have found common amongst our patients.
• Missing tooth/ teeth/ gapif you have a gap/missing or failing teeth in your mouth you may feel like you have no other solution than to have dentures and now are fed up with using dentures and are just too embarrassed to smile. If you have found that you are not able to chew the foods that you have always loved but now it is just that bit more difficult because of the missing tooth/teeth or gap then dental implants could be just what you need to give you back your confidence and also give you back your chewing ability to have all your favourite foods again.
• Mis-Alignment of teethMissing tooth/teeth can also mean that your other natural teeth adjacent to the space (gap) left will eventually move or shift. This can cause the existing teeth to grow too long or into the missing space (gap) causing your smile to be uneven and in some cases lead to tooth decay as the misaligned teeth are harder to get to making it more difficult to clean properly and any teeth that are growing into an opposing gap may have their root exposed and this can result in loose, painful, sensitive teeth. Over a period of time having a missing tooth/teeth can also lead to bone loss which can then result in your facial muscles in the cheeks to sink which can eventually become very aging in a person and make you look much older than you truly are.
• CosmeticOf course there are some of us that are just not happy with our smile and have very discoloured and uneven teeth and want that perfect whiter straighter smile.
So what is a Dental Implant? And what is the Oral Surgery role?Dental Implants are a titanium screw which is fitted (placed) into your jaw bone (it is fixed and cannot move) with an abutment fitted on top and then a porcelain crown (final tooth) constructed in our laboratory (based in High Wycombe) and fitted on the top of the abutment. Dental Implants are a permanent solution to missing or failing tooth/teeth and you will not have to worry about any embarrassing incidents where you feel your denture or bridge may fall out at the most inconvenient of times. Oral Surgery and Dental implants have improved the quality of life for lots of our patients making it easier to eat whatever foods they wish therefore giving them better nutrition. It has improved their confidence tenfold by giving them back the smile they have always wanted enabling them to go to the event or special occasion that they would normally always shy away from.
