Dental implants are available from us at The Mall Stockport. We like to think of them as the next generation of teeth replacement, even though they’ve actually been around for a good 30 years or more, since the 1980s. In that time, they have moved through their experimental stage and are now considered mainstream.
The popularity of dental implant treatment
You may not have heard of dental implants, because people like to keep anything to do with their dental health and beauty all to themselves. But ask around the over 50s and you’ll find a surprising number of them have one or two of these mini miracles of dental engineering secreted under their gums. Ask people who are over 65 and you’re bound to find one or two that have had all their teeth replaced, often with a technique that allows dentists to support an entire arch of teeth on just four implants. Other people have had their dentures stabilised with implants so that they don’t suffer from the dreaded sliding teeth syndrome so beloved of comedians in the late 20th century.
You, however, probably only need to have one or two teeth replaced, and, you’ll be pleased that if you’ve lost up to three teeth in a row, they can be replaced with just one implant supporting three custom-made crowns on a bridge.
The other good news is that your dental implants from The Mall, Stockport could last you the rest of your life if you are diligent in your dental hygiene routines.
