Do you have missing teeth that make you self-conscious? Well, your local Fleet dentist at Time Dental can give you your smile back and help you chew properly again. Interested? Then read on…
What options do I have with my Fleet dentist?
Missing teeth at the front due to trauma or missing teeth at the back of your mouth can make it very uncomfortable when trying to chew food. Options in the past used to be having to accept the gap, which can lead to further gum problems as teeth move into the space; wearing a removable denture, which many people just don’t like the thought of having something that needs to be taken in and out of the mouth; a fixed bridge, which is a great option but cannot be used in all cases and involves preparing teeth that maybe perfectly healthy; and dental implants.
So what are dental implants?
Dental implants are essentially titanium screws that replace the root of your missing teeth. Time Dental has a dedicated implant surgeon that carefully places the implants into the mouth. This is completed under local anaesthetic which makes it completely comfortable for you. We can even provide sedation if you are particularly nervous about it.
What are the benefits of having dental implants?
Dental implants can be used in many situations. They can help restore your smile if you have teeth missing at the front of your mouth which means you can smile confidently again. They can help you chew properly if you are missing teeth at the back of your mouth which means you can eat your favorite food without any discomfort. Those patients who wear dentures no longer have the worry of their dentures moving or coming out when eating.
