Traditionally, missing teeth are replaced using bridges or dentures. These can improve the appearance of your teeth. However, over time, problems with receding gums can arise. This can lead to poorly fitting teeth, so they’re not the ideal solution for many people. Here at The Mall Stockport dental implants are becoming an increasingly popular alternative to replace one or more missing teeth.
Dental implants – the supporting act
It could be said that dental implants are the next best thing to your natural teeth. Once fitted, the implant will become an integral part of your jaw. They will feel so natural that you will almost forget that they’re there. You will be able to relax and enjoy your everyday life, eating your favourite foods, talking clearly, smiling and laughing without worrying that your teeth are going to let you down by slipping or, even worse, falling out.
Dental implants help to preserve and stimulate the retention of bone which sustains the structure of the jawbone and prevents the gums from receding. This helps to support the shape of the lips and face, preventing that hollow, sunken look that can develop as we age. Here at The Mall Stockport, dental implants are becoming the preferred choice for patients of all ages to replace missing teeth. If you’re looking for a better way to replace missing teeth or even dentures, why not come and talk to us.
How do dental implants work?
Dental implants are made of two separate parts. The first is a screw that’s fitted into the jaw that becomes integrated into the bone. The crown will be fitted after a few weeks. To ensure the best fit and most successful results, we use the latest 3D digital software to plan the whole procedure before and during the process.
