At Wimbledon dentist, we understand missing or lost teeth can cause various problems such as sudden gap in your smile, movement of adjacent teeth and unclear speech. Luckily, dental implants are there to improve appearance, help in chewing, protect your bone and boost confidence.
A dental implant is an artificial tooth root made of titanium that is placed into the jawbone. A natural coloured tooth is placed over the implant to give you the look and feel of your tooth. Implants are comfortable that allows you to eat anything you really want and prevents jaw from shrinking for a younger appearance.
The great news is that implants do not suffer from gum disease or tooth decay as our teeth do. However, it is important to keep the gums around implants healthy and see how biting can have an impact on implants.
Implants do not move inside your mouth after they are placed that reduces the pain and discomfort
Prevents jaw bone deterioration that occurs when you have missing teeth
They do not affect your overall dental health. If you are having speech problem due to missing teeth, implants help in improving it
You can eat and chew food without any oral complications
Improve your appearance and confidence level
Our experienced dentists will evaluate your dental condition and determine if you are the right candidate for the treatment. You need to have good dental health with strong gums and sufficient jawbone in order to support the implant.
The oral surgeon will be placing the implant into the jawbone where adequate time will be given for healing and holding it firmly in place. Once it is healed and integrated, the surgeon fixes a bridge or crown to the implant.
The cost of the treatment in Wimbledon will depend on the individual who want to avail it. For this, it is a wise decision to get in touch with your dental surgeon who can help you to know about the price and which method will be suitable for your need.
