Dental implants offer a permanent solution to tooth loss. At Simply Teeth dental clinic in Essex we believe that they are, more often than not, the best way to replace any natural teeth you have lost – benefitting both your oral and general health for the long-term.
There are numerous advantages to dental implants when compared with traditional dental bridges or dentures. Whilst a standard bridge takes its support from surrounding teeth, requiring them to be healthy, strong, and free from large fillings yet paradoxically often necessitating the destruction of healthy tooth structure in order for crowns to be placed, implant-retained bridges take all their support from your dental implants.
In addition, an implant-retained bridge can contain a lot more teeth than a standard dental bridge. In some cases, a series of dental implants and a bridge can restore a full arch of teeth as an alternative to dentures.
Dental implants can also be used to support or stabilise dentures, making them function a lot more like natural teeth and also preventing the problem of bone loss, which makes your dentures lose their snug fit over time.
Essex dental implants
At Simply Teeth in Essex our skilled implant dentist can use dental implants to replace anything from one to all of your teeth. Implants are artificial tooth roots, placed in direct contact with your jaw bone. As soon as they are in position they begin to integrate with the bone, providing an anchor that is akin to that of a natural root on to which your new tooth or teeth will be attached.
Implants can be restored with a single crown, a bridge, or a denture. The restorations created at our Essex dental clinic will look and act so much like natural teeth that only you will know they aren’t the genuine article.
Having strong and secure teeth is vital to your general health and well being. Dental implants will enable you to eat a full, healthy diet and so maintain good nutrition throughout life, which is very important to preserving your health.
The strength of your jaw bone is also preserved, preventing a prematurely aged look.
