Dental implants also look more like natural teeth, and behave like them too. At The Mall Stockport, dental implants mean you need no longer suffer the embarrassment of your dentures moving around in your mouth, or the worry that they might even fall out like in some dreadful comedy show, and you can banish the horror of a house guest finding your dentures in a glass in the bathroom.
These life benefits come from the fact that dental implant technology fixes your new teeth into your mouth to behave like natural teeth. You can eat whatever you like, and brush your dental implants just like you brush your normal teeth, which is twice a day with a recommended toothbrush, toothpaste – and great care, we hope!
Let’s see how dental implants work to give you the new teeth you truly want. Dental implants are tiny metal screws, often made of titanium, that the dentist fixes into the bone of your jaw where your old tooth or teeth used to be. Once this procedure has been carried out, you then have to give it some time to settle in, and once this time has elapsed, you come back to us at The Mall Stockport. Dental implants come with artificial teeth, which have been custom-made to blend in with your own tooth colour and overall shape and look, are screwed onto the dental implants. If you need more than one tooth, you can have a bridge screwed onto two or more dental implant screws.
And that’s it! You are good to go and resume a normal life, eat what you like, laugh, cough, and generally behave like a person with a full set of their own teeth. What could be better?
One other plus is that as the titanium screw settles down, new bone tissue will grow around it, along with new blood vessels, and your face will fill out, losing that sunken look that develops as the bone and gums shrink after tooth loss.
