At Edinburgh’s Polwarth Dental Clinic, patients with missing teeth often want a solution that looks and feels better than removable replacement teeth like traditional dentures. The strength and durability offered by implant dentistry can give patients increased self-confidence as well as boost their biting and chewing ability.
Another benefit is that the overall cleanliness of the mouth is easier to maintain. When a gap is permanently filled, there’s less chance of plaque and tartar building up in that area, leading to tooth decay and gum disease.
Feeling good and looking great
As well as helping with oral cleanliness and dental strength, dental implants in Edinburgh can also ensure your face maintains its natural shape and structure. The ‘sunken’ look often associated with people who wear dentures is avoided because of the integral relationship between the implants and the jawbone. Here’s how it works.
After a detailed consultation with one of our dental professionals, and the careful construction of your treatment plan, you will be ready for your dental implants. Dental implants are small titanium posts that are inserted into your jawbone during a minor surgical procedure, carried out under local anaesthetic. The implants stimulate the jawbone to grow new bone to mesh around them. This creates a stable bond, which once the replacement teeth are attached on top, stimulates the jawbone in the same way natural teeth would. This is what keeps it healthy.
Any age, any situation
People with all kinds of tooth loss can benefit from dental implants in Edinburgh. Sporting mishaps can leave a gap in your front teeth that causes a drop in self-assurance. Or it might be that you’ve lost several teeth over the years and you haven’t got round to sorting them out yet. Whatever the extent of your tooth loss, and whatever stage of life you’ve reached, missing teeth put your oral health at risk. Implant dentistry is a modern remedy that will reduce this risk, while enhancing the appearance of your smile.
