For people seeking replacement teeth in Sutton Coldfield, dental implants are a secure and long-lasting solution. By providing a stable and permanent base for the natural-looking new teeth, dental implants will enable you to bite and chew with confidence, as well as improve your oral hygiene and maintain your facial bone structure.
These benefits can last for the rest of your life, if the new teeth are properly cared for. At Sutton Dental & Implant Clinic in Sutton Coldfield, dental implants can be used to replace any number of teeth, whether you’ve lost a single tooth in a sporting injury, or a whole set of teeth over years of ongoing deterioration.
Progress by stages
In the first part of the treatment, our friendly dental professionals will talk to you in detail about your oral health history, and the results you want to achieve with your replacement teeth. We’ll assess your teeth and oral health in detail, to make sure your mouth is ready to receive the implants.
Then comes the minor surgical procedure, in which small metal posts are placed into your jawbone. After a period of healing, you will return to the dental practice to have your replacement teeth affixed to the tops of these posts.
Improvements in several areas
In a process known as osseointegration, the bone in the jaw securely meshes with the metal posts that have been placed into it. This stable base allows you to use the new teeth in the same way you would have used your natural ones, without worrying they might slip out of the mouth as removable dentures sometimes do.
There’s no need to opt for soft or mushy foods. And there is the further bonus that the implants prevent bone loss, so your jaw stays strong and the underlying firmness of your facial structure is maintained.
Dental implants in Sutton Coldfield will also reduce the chances you’ll develop oral hygiene problems like tooth decay or gum disease, because they fill in the gaps in your teeth, leaving fewer places in which harmful food debris and bacteria can build up.
Plus, it can be easier to pronounce certain words and phrases with dental implants than it would be with removable dentures.
