Are toothy gaps ruining your looks?
Age is an obvious factor in the issue of missing teeth, but accidents or illness can be causes too. If you have lost one or more teeth then you will know that it affects your appearance as well as limiting what foods you can enjoy. If lots of teeth are missing then it starts to change how your voice sounds too. So many people put up with the problems associated with gaps as they are worried about having a loose denture, have experienced a failed bridge or are tired of coping with unstable bridges.
At Old Windsor Dental Practice, we often hear how people restrict themselves to a diet of soft foods and have resigned themselves to coping with ongoing difficulties due to missing teeth or unsatisfactory solutions. Fortunately, we can offer our patients in Windsor dental implants. These are an established technique for replacing teeth in a way that is durable, stable and natural-looking.
Options that work for you
Removeable dentures used to be the only option for replacing a full set of missing teeth. Now, you can choose dental implants in Windsor as a secure base for replacements. The implants are placed following careful planning and allowed to heal for eight to 12 weeks. During this time, the bones and blood vessels of the jaw mesh around the titanium implants to stabilise them. After this, a healing abutment is attached to the implants and we take impressions a week later so that your replacement teeth can be made. These are fitted after two weeks and then you are free to enjoy your new teeth.
Why have dental implants?
For some people, the main reason is to improve how they look. There are also many other reasons to consider dental implants in Windsor. You can eat a full diet again, stop worrying about unstable replacements and live without the inconvenience of having to remove your appliances for cleaning. Dental implants function just like natural tooth roots so they help to strengthen the jaw and, if cared for correctly, can last for decades.
