Dental Implant

It is no secret that when we look good we feel good. This could be because you are wearing your favorite pair of jeans that work for every occasion and have yet to let you down, or your new trainers have finally arrived, or you just left the hairdresser and it is her best work yet.

But even if we had all those elements combined into one neat little package, when we look in the mirror and see that we have missing teeth, broken or skew incisors it can knock our confidence out of the park.

No one wants to go through life smiling only with their lips, or eating meals every day with a struggle because we have nothing to chew with. But could a full cosmetic dentistry procedure be budgeted for? In most cases no and for this reason, people accept their fate and carry on with life and their diluted smile.

There is something you could consider to make things that much better and to give you the quality of life you deserve. Implants.

Hearing this word can make some people groan because there seems to be a negative stigma attached to the word and process, but without all the facts and information how could you conclude your decision accurately when it could be the answer you have been looking for all along.

We will take a look at both sides of the story and then it will be easier to see whether this is the option for you and the next step in your smiling adventure. The world deserves to see your smile, and some dentists and professionals want to make that happen.

The world of implants

Firstly, we need to be clear about what dental implants are, not to be confused with bridges, dentures, or all the other options available which don’t do the job 100% but are rather a temporary solution you end up tending to later on in life again.

A dental implant is in simple terms ‘an anchor’ (see the more detailed and descriptive version here for more information), it is the base or root to which a cosmetic tooth will be attached.

It is a screw that is fixed into the jawbone essentially replacing and mimicking your original tooth root, over time the bone surrounding the screw eventually fuses to it thus making it that much sturdier. Then a false tooth, similar in size, shape, and color to your existing teeth is placed on top of the screw and fixed into place.

The main objective for a dentist is to not only help you gain a comfortable eating mechanism, fill in missing and unsightly gaps, but to make it look as natural as possible and make the implant blend in with the rest of your teeth.

To do or not to do

This is the big question people are constantly asking themselves, is it worth it, is it safe, should I make a financial plan to get dental implant work done? And while you may be hesitant there are many reasons why you should consider it if it has been on your mind for some time. Let’s take a look at the positives it can bring to your life as well as why others may believe it to be unnecessary and simply a money-making procedure.

Like with all things, whether it be trying out new products, ingredients, or even services there will always be critics and naysayers, after reading all the information you can conclude for yourself, but do your research, knowledge is certainly power.

  • Longevity. Unlike natural teeth that significantly deteriorate over time due to hard foods or aging, an implant can last forever. You do however need to keep in mind that the top surface may show signs of wear and tear and if this happens a lot you may need to look at a new topcoat. This would essentially only need to be relooked at every 10 years or so.

This being said, there is always time for a cup of tea, so once you have a steaming cup next to you on the sofa you can take a moment to click here and read an interesting article discussing the lifespan of implants, the procedures that make it happen, and what could cause its deterioration in the long run.

  • As mentioned they are done in such a way that no one will be the wiser that the tooth was artificial unless they knew that you had a gap there before, otherwise it is blended seamlessly in with the neighboring teeth. But be aware that if you have had a gap for quite some time the bone can shrink, so check if you have enough bone to support an implant.
  • Cost-effective. The procedure is more than likely a once-off as it is a permanent fixture thus the replacement and repair procedures are essentially eliminated. It does however mean that the initial cost will be higher than most other procedures.

At the end of the day

Finding the right dentist to carry out your dental implants procedure may seem daunting, sure, but take your time to find a clinic that makes you feel comfortable, has reasonable rates, and has an overall professional impression.

You want to know that you are in safe and capable hands and this is not something you want to rush into without doing your homework.

Once you have found the dentist for you be ready to embrace the smile you were always meant to show.
