Choosing dental implants as a solution to your tooth loss will give you back more than just your smile. At Ralston Dental and Cosmetic Clinic in Leicester, we can use implants to replace anything from one to all of your natural teeth, restoring natural action as well as appearance.
If there is one thing that every dentist in the land will agree on, it’s that missing teeth should always be replaced one way or another. At our Leicester dental clinic, be believe that in the vast majority of cases, dental implants are the best solution.
Losing just one tooth can damage your oral health, with your remaining teeth immediately having to take up additional strain when you bite or chew food. These teeth often move into the spaces left by missing teeth, too, becoming harder to clean in the process.
When several or all the teeth are missing, your diet will become severely restricted, and you will experience issues with both speech and self-confidence.
By using dental implants, all of these problems can be solved – or ideally entirely avoided in the first place. At our Leicester dental practice we can combine a single implant with a crown to replace one lost tooth, and can use several dental implants in conjunction with either a fixed bridge or dentures to solve multiple tooth loss, or loss of all the natural teeth.
The benefits of dental implants
Dental implants help to protect the strength of your jaw bone as well as keeping your new teeth firmly in your mouth. Loss of bone density is frequently seen in patients with traditional dentures, and is the primary reason that such dentures often become loose and unwieldy.
By using implants to stabilise your dentures, your Leicester dentist can alleviate common denture issues, enabling you eat what you want, speak with clarity, and generally get on with enjoying life without your loose dentures getting in the way.
Implants are designed to be a long-term, even permanent solution to tooth loss. Of course, you will have to take good care of them; visiting the hygienist at our Leicester clinic will help you learn how to clean them.
