Would you like to replace your missing teeth but you’d rather not wear dental bridges or dentures? Dental implants are natural-looking, long-lasting replacements for missing teeth. By replacing missing tooth roots, dental implants allow people to eat their favourite foods without pain or struggle. At the same time, they help restore function to your bite. Dental implants can also stimulate and preserve the jawbone, preventing bone loss and helping to maintain facial structure.
At Polwarth Dental Clinic, we believe that teeth restored with dental implants are teeth that let you take control of your life. No more avoiding crunchy or chewy food! If you are considering dental implants in Edinburgh, make sure that you are informed on every aspect of implant dentistry to help you make your decision. Dr Willie Jack, our implant dentist, can guide you through the process step-by-step.
Advantages of dental implants
If you, like millions of people, have lost one or more teeth, then you understand the unpleasant consequences that come with tooth loss. Dental implants are fixed into the jawbone and act like the root of your natural teeth. Unlike dentures or removable bridges, which can be wobbly or look unnatural, implants blend in with the rest of your teeth and offer the same chewing force as a natural tooth. Dental implants are also extremely stable. Unlike dentures you can’t remove them – they stay in your mouth at all times and you can brush and floss them like regular teeth.
Dental implants in Edinburgh are very versatile. They can be used in a variety of ways and combinations to replace your missing teeth. You can opt for single tooth implants, an implant-supported bridge or partial dentures, or an entire set of implant supported dentures. Finally, dental implants help keep the rest of your teeth healthy as they do not require the grinding down of adjacent teeth like bridges.
At Polwarth Dental Clinic, whether you need treatment for missing teeth or a full-mouth restoration, we can advise you on the most suitable option for you. If you have any questions or would like to schedule an appointment, contact us today.
