Age, accidents or underlying health issues can all result in gaps in your mouth, which can be unsightly as well as causing problems with everyday activities such as eating and speaking. You may feel self-conscious about your smile or have noticed that your face is starting to sag because it is not getting the support it used to from a full set of teeth. Dentures can be unsatisfactory, but there are alternatives. For patients at Moor Park Dental in London, dental implants are a stable, permanent solution which fits into their lifestyle.

How do dental implants work?

The implants are small metal screws that are fitted into the jaw during a minor surgical procedure. During the healing process, the bones and blood vessels mesh around them to hold them in place. When they are stable, they can be used as a secure base for a single replacement tooth, several teeth or a whole set of dentures. In some cases, we can fit your new teeth in the same day so you can walk out with a totally new smile. Having dental implants in London can be an effective, long-term restoration as, with the correct care, they can last for several decades.

What are the advantages?

The first thing that other people will see is a great smile, but because implants replace natural teeth roots, you will find that you hardly notice that you have them. Your new teeth are carefully made to match the tone and shape of existing teeth so your improved appearance will be very natural. Your replacement teeth will be secure so you can talk without fear of dentures falling out, and bite and chew as normal. This means that you can enjoy a full range of food again. Having dental implants in London also improves the strength of your jaw as they stimulate the bone in the same way as a natural tooth root. This prevents the shrinkage that can occur in people who wear dentures.

You could experience a new lease of life with dental implants in London. Moor Park Dental looks forward to talking to you to find out how we can help.
