Who Can Have Dental Implants?
Here at Comfort Smiles Dentistry, this is a question we are often asked and we frequently find that people are surprised by the answer. The truth is that dental implants are highly suitable for most people. The only real proviso is that you are old enough for your jaws to have finished developing and that you have reasonable general and dental health. The reason why it’s best to be in good health is because dental implants do require a small surgical procedure, where the implant post is inserted directly into your jawbone. Afterwards the post must be left to heal and integrate with the jawbone and if you have any health conditions that affect your immune system, then healing could be slower and ultimately less successful.
Finding out If Dental Implants Could Help You
If you do have gaps in your smile and are considering dental implants, it’s best to book an appointment with one of our dentists. An initial consultation will allow you to find out far more about this treatment and we can assess your dental health and your general health to make sure dental implants are the most suitable choice of tooth replacement. It really doesn’t matter if you are a bit older as dental implants have been successfully used to treat many people in their 80s and beyond.
How Can Dental Implants Help Fill in the Gaps?
Dental implants are very versatile. If you are missing just a single tooth then this can be a great option for replacing it. We can use multiple dental implants to support bridges of teeth as it isn’t necessary to replace every single tooth with a dental implant. This can mean that treatment is very cost-effective and it produces excellent results.
Treatment can potentially be life changing for people who have lost all their teeth, many of whom may be currently struggling with loose and ill-fitting dentures that make it tricky to eat and speak comfortably. By using just a few optimally placed dental implants, we can support a complete upper or lower denture that will clip onto the dental implants so it will be firmly held in place but can still be removed for easy cleaning. Another option is to get rid of your denture completely, replacing it with a complete arch of teeth that will be permanently fixed in place by our dentist so you will not need to worry about taking your teeth out for cleaning ever again.
Relax During Treatment
We go to great lengths to ensure every dental implant treatment is successful and is as comfortable as possible for our patients. If you are already a regular visitor to our dental office then you’ll know we go out of our way to create a comfortable atmosphere aimed at helping people to relax during dental appointments. Much of the planning for dental implant treatments is done behind the scenes and your actual appointment to have them inserted may be surprisingly quick. For example, a single dental implant can be inserted in an appointment of just an hour. Meticulous planning also helps to ensure recovery is quicker and smoother.
