How your new year could be improved with dental implants
Dental implants are a ‘whole tooth replacement’, since they replicate the tooth root. Once fitted, you will hardly know the difference between your dental implant and your natural teeth. At Sheen Dental, your dentist in Richmond, we can advise you on your suitability for the treatment, providing you with a detailed treatment plan, including the costs involved.
Benefits of dental implants
There are many benefits of dental implants, including how they improve your overall oral health.
When you lose a tooth, the root and the crown are both lost. They have specific functions for the mouth. This includes eating, but it also includes promoting a healthy jawbone and gum. Your jawbone naturally grows around your root, when the root is lost your jawbone starts to slowly lose density. Surrounding teeth may then be destabilised, leading to further tooth loss. However, thanks to the way titanium interacts with bone, new growth is promoted, and your entire dental chain is then stabilised.
Creating the perfect façade
At Christmas you may have chipped a tooth on the figgy pudding, so maybe it’s time to look at veneers as a possible solution. Veneers consist of a thin porcelain shell that is bonded to your tooth. Your dentist in Richmond will colour-match the veneer to your natural enamel colour so that it blends in, whilst also repairing and strengthening your cracked or chipped tooth.
