Anyone who has had a dental implant, or a few implants, will tell you how life-changing it can be. Dental implants are used for people who have broken teeth, perhaps from an accident, or missing teeth, either accidental or from tooth decay. Dental implants look real, feel real and make all the difference to a person’s smile and self confidence. They are permanent, which means there is no need for the awkwardness of a denture. And the process these days, is fairly seamless and pain free.
Get the smile you deserve
So many people are self conscious about their smiles. In this day and age, with dental technology being so amazing, there is no need to have bad teeth. Replacing a missing tooth, or fixing a broken tooth, is simple. If you need a dental implant, your dentist will tell you exactly what is involved. Most often, dental implants require just two appointments – the initial assessment, which is also when the mould can be taken, and then the appointment for the fitting.
If you have dental pain, check it out
Your tooth, or teeth, may be quietly decaying. You don’t want to wait for your tooth to fall out, simply because you are causing extra damage to the bone and gum. It could be that a dentist can repair your tooth – perhaps root canal treatment – or it could be that your tooth needs to come out and be replaced. Your dentist will tell you the best option, and if it is an implant, know that you are going for a good option!
Dental implants look real
A well made dental implant looks just like your other teeth. You do not need to worry about breaking out into a smile and having people think ‘Oh, it’s an implant.’ A good implant is well made, well measured, and designed to look like, and feel like, your own teeth. The colour and size can be perfectly matched. Remember, if you don’t like the colour of your teeth, this too can be changed. A good dental practice will offer a variety of dental cosmetic surgeries, including a range of teeth whitening options.
Dental implants are long lasting
Once you have your dental implant, or implants if you need more than one, they are going to last you for many years, hopefully more than a decade. You do need to care for your implants, the same way you care for your teeth. Brush in the morning and brush at night. Use dental floss. And always go and visit the dentist every six months, to have your teeth cleaned and checked.
How to choose the right dentist
Ask your dentist about the technology they use. If you have to wait weeks for a dental implant, it is not going to suit you. Rather work with a dental practice that uses the latest technology and is able to fill those gaps in your mouth quickly, painlessly and superbly. You deserve to have a great smile.
