10 Jan Missing teeth and dental implants
Having teeth missing can create real problems in your life. Apart from not being able to experience the full range of basic functions like eating, you may also be less inclined to smile, socialise or even kiss. You are probably already considering your options for teeth replacement and, at Dental Beauty Islington, we want to offer you a full range of solutions. One of these might be dental implants in North London with us.
Dental implants are small screws or cylinders that are inserted into your jawbone. Once the area has healed and they are secure, your dentist will then add synthetic teeth in the form of a crown, bridge or dentures. You can then use these as you would normal teeth. They are secure, durable and precisely shaped to fit you.
Why do people choose this solution?
People choose dental implants in North London because of the way that they closely mimic the functionality of normal teeth. Once fitted, they move in a harmonious way with the jawbone because they are fully integrated by the healing process. They are also low-maintenance and require little in the way of care on top of a normal dental routine.
What do you need to be aware of?
The process of getting dental implants in North London is reasonably detailed and requires commitment on your part. You will need to give them time to heal and, during that period, rest is required as well as a limited diet. This may require you to take time off from work and you need to refrain from strenuous exercise.
Dental implants are not a low-budget solution and are rarely available on the NHS. Your dentist may be able to talk to you about ways to spread the cost or they can offer alternative, more affordable options.
How can you start the process?
Make an appointment with us at Dental Beauty Islington. The best way to start the process is to talk to a member of our team who can begin to personalise the information here and more besides to your particular case. This is when you will get a clearer idea of the specifics in areas that are important to you such as treatment length, any contingencies and more detailed costs.
