Dental implants are a great option for many variations of tooth loss. Whether it is the result of an accident, long term deterioration or oral health issues that have resulted in stress and reduction in the health of your teeth, dental implants can help. They can replace multiple teeth whether they are adjoining or not, a single tooth or a full set of teeth. If you want to keep any healthy teeth you have left then that is an option and they can benefit from the dental implants in the long term. Unlike some traditional tooth replacement methods, your dental implants are not in any way anchored to you remaining teeth and so do not put further stress on them. They can actually stimulate blood vessels in the jaw and will encourage bone growth once fitted which ensures they are fully integrated into your mouth. The whole process can be fully described to you by your dentist so you understand what work needs to be done, how long it will take and what the cost will be. There is plenty of room to explore possibilities no matter what factors you need to consider.
Some extra options for dental implants
At a clinic like Blue Sky Dentistry in Belfast, they also offer some extra options. The first is Click to Fit dentures which can help you tackle some of the issues surrounding traditional dentures such as slippage, poor fitting or restricted eating choices. Dental implants can give you a firmer grip on your dentures to give you back your control and help you to feel natural when speaking and eating. Another great option is ‘Teeth in a Day’ – this treatment can take you from having no teeth to a full set in a single day’s worth of treatment. It can take as little as four dental implants to hold a full set of upper or lower teeth and these can be fitted in a single, short treatment window. Eight weeks of healing later and you will be eating normally again and, hopefully, better than before. Your dentist will work with you to ensure you understand the full process and to get you to great look teeth as soon as possible.
