There are two things most people will notice about someone upon meeting them- first will be their eyes and second will be their smile. However, if a tooth is missing it can affect the structure of the face and many people may become very self-conscious about the gap, which is why dental implants are so useful. A dental implant is a cylindrical screw that can be fitted and used to house false teeth, known as restorations. The implant acts as a root for the false tooth and over time the false tooth will become fused to the jawbone, just as normal teeth are.
Dental implants for patients from Rochdale is an excellent way to replace one, several or an entire set of missing teeth and in addition to the obvious cosmetic enhancement, the procedure also has a number of other benefits. The implants work to kindle bone growth, which is lost at the time a tooth is removed and the bone in that area begins to shrink. It can help to protect other teeth from damage and chipping, and no work needs to be done on the neighbouring teeth in order to fit it.
Many people who have undergone this treatment have experienced a massive boost in self-confidence, as they no longer feel the need to hide their mouths from others. Once the implant is in and the false tooth is fitted the implant is to be treated just like any other tooth, so there is no need for any special care requirements, which makes it a very hassle free option.
Having an implant, or implants, fitted can literally save your smile and make you feel more comfortable in yourself. One of the main advantages of the dental implant is that it can, over time, become a natural part of the mouth’s structure, which means you are free to eat, speak and smile naturally.
