All You Need To Know About Dental Implants

Sovereign House Dental care offer bespoke dental implants as the perfect solution to damaged or missing teeth, enabling you to regain your smile and your confidence. Dental implants allow a bridge, denture, or crown to be fitted on a stable base in your jaw. If you have teeth visibly missing, dental implants can help to form that fantastic smile with a full set of teeth once more.

Simply put, a dental implant is an addition to your jaw, that will allow the application of a crown, bridge, or denture. This replaces lost or broken teeth, and cosmetically enhances the patient’s teeth and smile.

Are Dental Implants For Me?

You may wish to consider dental implants if you have lost a tooth or multiple teeth. Having gaps in your teeth can not only cause confidence issues but is also detrimental to your oral health. Neighbouring teeth can move towards the gaps causing further dental problems.

Dental implants will stop other teeth moving into the gaps left by missing teeth, and help you maintain a smile that you are proud of. Filling these gaps can also lower your risk of cavities and gum disease.

How Are Dental Implants Fitted?

Once you have decided to get dental implants, you will have a full consultation. This will determine precisely what work is required to get your jaw and teeth to the end goal.

A thorough assessment will take place, and impressions will be taken to ensure that the gaps are filled in the best way. The implant itself is a tiny screw that is incorporated into your jawbone. You will need to leave some time for this fitting to fuse into the bone successfully. Once this step is complete, your denture, bridge or crown will be fitted onto your implant. Any new teeth will be custom made to fit perfectly into your set of teeth. They will look natural and will not stand out from the rest of your teeth.

Taking Care Of Your Dental Implants

Once your dental implants are complete, and treatment has been successful, you can enjoy your fabulous set of teeth. You will need to ensure that you correctly care for your dental implants to avoid issues down the line. You should treat your implants much like your regular teeth. Brush them at least twice a day, floss often, and use mouthwash. Your dentist will also give you clear instructions on your oral healthcare plan.
