Losing your natural teeth can be hard. The happy things in life that were once easy and fun, such as smiling and laughing, become difficult and embarrassing. Pleasures such as eating turn into chores, and with missing teeth, chewing your favourite dish can be painful and not worth the hassle. If you have experienced tooth loss, whether that is a single tooth or several teeth, it is possible to get back the confident, unafraid grin you once possessed.
It might be that your missing teeth have stolen away some of your confidence. Having this issue not only affects the appearance of your smile, but also your oral health. Gaps in your teeth can lead to further complications such as the disappearance of the surrounding tissues and your jawbone over time. If you are missing one or a few teeth, the remaining ones can try to shift into their spaces, causing problems like misalignment and crookedness.
The solution to the problem
Are you tired of having to deal with these problems or sick of seeing the mess that your missing teeth have left behind? It’s not all doom and gloom, because at Leamington Spa Dental Practice we might recommend that you consider dental implants. These are effective alternatives to treatments like dentures, which may not be the permanent solution you were looking for.
Instead, if you’re considering dental implants in Leamington Spa, then you’re on the right track to gaining new teeth that appear and feel natural. The implants are small titanium screws that are fitted into the jawbone, which heal and integrate over time. Once established, these screws can anchor new teeth like crowns, fixed dentures or bridges. That means that dental implants can redeem the loss of a single tooth or many more if required.
Filling gaps and forming smiles
Dental implants sound a lot scarier than they actually feel. But at Leamington Spa Dental Practice, we empathise with the fears that some patients may have. In most cases, local anaesthetic is used so that pain wouldn’t be a concern.
While there may be some temporary discomfort following your treatment, it’s worth it for a fulfilled future of confident and gleaming grins!
