Have you recently lost a tooth or had an extraction? Are you tired of wearing dentures that don’t fit properly? If you suffer from any of the above, maybe it’s time to consider dental implants in Ealing.
At Ikon Dental Suite, we will patiently answer all your questions about dental implants in Ealing and help you find a solution that will meet your oral health needs. We have been using dental implants for many years with success for patients who have missing or badly decayed teeth. Unlike conventional bridges and dentures, dental implants in Ealing form an organic connection with the jawbone and promote the growth of bone tissue.
How do dental implants work?
Dental implants are very easy to install and require minor surgery which is hardly painful. If you feel anxious at the prospect, simply ask your dentist about sedation options. Once the dental implants are placed into your jawbone, they will be left to heal for a few weeks (or several months depending on the type of dental implants and the overall number of missing teeth) before your dentist installs your replacement teeth on top of them. Replacement teeth can take the form of crowns, bridges and/or dentures. Again, the exact procedure comes down to the number of teeth missing and the overall number of dental implants involved.
Benefits of dental implants in Ealing
Although dentures are very affordable and semi-functional, they can easily become loose. Dental implants allow patients to experience the same functionality as with their natural teeth. For instance, many denture wearers cannot bite right into hard fruit and vegetables without worrying their dentures are going to fall out. Dental implants improve your chewing and biting force and allow you to eat a variety of nutritional foods.
Dental implants also promote better oral health. Caring for dental implants is easy; just brush and floss them along with the rest of your teeth and see the dentist regularly for dental check-ups and cleanings. This way your dental implants can last for many years and possibly a lifetime.
Last but not least, dental implants prevent your jawbone from corrosion, while at the same time they encourage the development of new bone tissue.
