There is constant talk about eating a healthy and balanced diet. We do like to indulge in our favourite foods once in a while, but one thing is certain: the wellbeing of our teeth makes a huge difference TO what we can and can’t eat and, therefore our quality of life.
Here at Enhance Dental in Leeds we believe that no one should be limited by their teeth. Even after tooth loss there are treatments such as dental implants that could get you back to your normal pace of life in six months or less.
In Leeds, dental implants can replace any number of missing teeth and even secure dentures that may have become ill-fitting and uncomfortable.
How dental implants could work for you
Compared to other forms of tooth replacement, dental implants have very few downsides. They work with the function of your natural body to create natural-looking and natural-feeling teeth. You may even find, after healing time, that your new implants feel just like natural teeth in your mouth.
In Leeds, dental implants actually act to save the rest of your teeth, providing vital stimulation to your jaw bone and keeping your gums and facial muscles active and looking natural.
Getting dental implants: what’s involved
In Leeds, dental implant treatment involves a minor surgical procedure. The procedure involves a small hole being drilled in your jawbone where the natural root of your tooth would have been. This hole is made for a titanium screw to be inserted.
Because the screw is made from titanium, the bone will heal around the screw, creating a stable anchor for an appliance to be attached. Dental implants can support a range of appliances. For a single missing tooth, a custom-made crown can be attached to create a seamless smile. For more than one teeth, a bridge can be made and attached.
If you are a denture user and you want more stability, your current dentures can be adapted to be fixed to dental implants, or you could have a custom-made set for that perfect fit.
Implants are an excellent choice for any number of missing teeth and could have you enjoying a healthy, balanced diet in less time than you may think.
