Not only does having missing teeth come with cosmetic concerns, having a missing tooth can also cause serious problems for the other natural teeth in your smile. Over time, the surrounding teeth will move into the empty space, drifting out of alignment and increasing the gaps between teeth. This is a problem for a number of reasons. Firstly, this will cause your teeth to wear unevenly because your bite will meet unevenly. Another reason is that gaps in your teeth provide the perfect conditions for harmful bacteria to build up.
A nearly perfect solution to tooth loss
Here at The Mall Stockport, we can provide a complete service for tooth replacement. Dental implants are the closest thing to natural teeth because they replace the root of the tooth as well as the crown. If you are considering dental implants, come in and visit one of our professionals at The Mall Stockport for a chat about the pros and cons, to discover if this treatment is for you.
With our modern techniques, we can plan your whole smile. You can even see how your smile will look after the whole treatment is complete. Using x-rays and CT scans, the dentist will plot exactly where the implant will be placed.
How it all works
Having your smile completed with dental implants at The Mall Stockport involves having a minor surgical procedure. During this procedure, patients report very little pain. If you do experience dental anxiety, there is a range of sedation options available for you.
The procedure involves attaching a titanium screw to the natural material of your jaw bone. The screw is made out of titanium because this material fuses with the natural bone to create the most stable anchor for a custom-made crown to be applied.
Once this treatment is complete, you will hardly be able to tell which tooth is natural and which is false. You can continue to enjoy the same quality of life you had before tooth loss.
