Coptfold Dental: we can make you whole again!

When Atomic Kitten crooned about a person making them feel whole again, who knew that they were talking about teeth?! While this might just be a little joke, there is certainly something to be said for dental implants Brentwood and how they can make people with missing teeth feel whole again. If you have missing teeth, dental implants can be the next best thing to having your natural teeth and the effect on your self-esteem for having a complete smile shouldn’t be underestimated. And while it is aesthetically pleasing to replace missing teeth, there are also medical benefits as well. dental-implants-brentwood

What are dental implants?

Dental implants are metal screws that are attached to your jawbone where you have missing teeth. We attach replacement teeth to these screws and they are firmly fixed in place as a result. This means that you have functional teeth and they look great too. Dental implants Brentwood shouldn’t let you down whether you’re chatting with friends or eating tougher foods, so there will be no need to change your diet because of having replacement teeth in your mouth.

The advantages of dental implants

Implants may be used to replace a single tooth, multiple teeth or even a whole set of teeth. We use crowns, dentures or bridges for your replacement teeth and choose them according to how many you need replacing. Crowns are normally used for a single tooth replacement, whereas bridges are for several teeth, and dentures for a whole set. They are easy to maintain once they are fitted as all you need to do is brush and floss regularly and come for your routine dental checkups with us – it couldn’t be easier! If you look after your implants, they could even last you a lifetime. Another benefit is that when you smile, nobody will realise that you don’t have a full set of natural teeth and they shouldn’t loosen and let the cat out of the bag either!

Another benefit of choosing implants is the fact that they can prevent any remaining natural teeth that you have from being exposed more to bacteria; by filling in the gaps in your smile, you are protecting them from exposure. A further benefit is that if you have experienced a shrunken face as a result of missing teeth, dental implants will add structure to your face and could make you look more youthful. It could definitely be a winner if it gives you a beautiful smile and a fresh-faced look!
