Dental Implants from your Surrey Dentist
While regular brushing, flossing, and dental technology are allowing many people to preserve their natural smiles for a lifetime, often our individual teeth just can not keep up. If you’ve lost a tooth (or a couple of teeth) due to injury or disease, dental implants can invigorate both your smile and your dental health.
An implant is an artificial tooth root in the shape of a post that is surgically put into the jawbone. They are very stable and feel like and mimic natural teeth. The ideal prospect for implants is a non-smoker who has good oral health, including a sufficient amount of bone in the jaw, and healthy gums with no sign of gum issues or disease.
If you are just missing one tooth, one implant plus one replacement tooth will certainly do the trick. However, if you are missing numerous teeth in a row, a couple of purposefully put implants can support a bridge.
When getting dental implants, consider your replacement teeth to be the same as natural teeth. They require the same daily brushing and flossing treatments, and the same amount of regular Surrey dentist dental appointments. Like your natural teeth, the better you take care of your replacements, the longer they will last.
