Have other dental surgeons told you that you’re not a good candidate to get dental implants in London? If so that may not be the case as many people may not fully understand what an implant is all about and whether or not they should be afraid to get one. So you may be asking yourself just who dental implants are for. If you have a single missing tooth or several missing teeth, you are a candidate to receive a dental implant. The next question you may be wondering would be what are dental implants? A dental implant is a non-natural replacement of a natural tooth or teeth. The implant is created using titanium, which happens to be the perfect material because titanium provides a strong basis for teeth. So why do people need to have a tooth replaced would probably be another question to ponder. Here is just a short list of why people would replace their natural teeth: poor dental work, unable to wear dentures, medical issues, injury/trauma, crooked teeth, cavities, periodontal disease, and fractures. It’s estimated that the average person at age 50 may be missing up to 10 or more of their natural teeth. Over half of those people will never do anything about their missing simply because they have a fear of going to the dentist. In our next blog post we will talk about why people have a fear of going to the dentist and the top 10 reasons why you should get dental implants if you have a missing tooth.
