How to choose the best local dental implant clinic
If you have been suffering from missing teeth and have made the decision to invest in a new smile, then no doubt you may have considered dental implants. But how do you choose the best local dental implant clinic in Derby to ensure that you get the very best in treatment and aftercare without having to spend a fortune? Here are some key things to think about.
Why are dental implants so popular?
Dental implants are a popular treatment for several reasons. They offer a permanent and discreet solution from a single missing tooth to a complete arch. They can even be fitted for patients who have previously relied on dentures. Here are some of the many benefits of dental implants:
- Do not rely on other teeth for support
- Look and feel completely natural
- Suitable for almost everybody
- Permanently fitted
- Suitable for anything from a single tooth to a complete arch
- Prevent future damage due to receding jaw
- Avoid the appearance of early aging
- Help to restore confidence and self-esteem
How do dental implants work?
Dental implants actually comprise of three components – the implant, the abutment and the crown. The crown is the visible replacement tooth, while the abutment is what connects this to the implant.
The most important part by far is the implant itself, which is made of titanium. The reason for this is that it is a biocompatible material, meaning it has the ability to bond with the bone itself. Although it is unseen, it serves to replace the root of the missing tooth or teeth, providing a permanent, stable solution upon which to mount your replacement teeth, and also helping to restore the jaw to its original strength. This helps to prevent any further risk to your remaining healthy teeth and also avoid receding jaw, which can cause premature aging.
