In days gone by the words and procedures for “dental implants” were non-existent and the only hope for those with visibly missing teeth as a result of accident or those who had to undergo dental procedures that resulted in the extraction of one or many teeth was the fitment of dentures.
The result of having to wear dentures is a severe impact on the lifestyle of the wearer. Many dentures are ill fitting and can cause severe dental and other health problems, maintaining dentures is a time consuming business and the risk of dentures becoming damaged is also extremely high.
Today, advances in dental technology and processes allows a specialist cosmetic dentist to provide patients with a solution to these potential problems in the form of dental implants. These implants serve as a replacement for teeth that have been lost. A skilled cosmetic dentist, using state of the art tools can supply dental implants extremely quickly and with a minimum of ongoing pain. Often dental implants can be supplied and fitted during a single visit.
The ease with which specialised cosmetic dental practitioners can supply dental implants has meant that those who formerly had to turn to dentures can today enjoy the ease and convenience of dental implants. Dental implants are preferable to dentures because of a number of factors. The implants require very little specialised care and normal dental hygiene procedures will usually be enough to care for the dental implants which will continue to give years of trouble free service if simple dental hygiene procedures are followed. Dental implants also have the advantage of allowing the patient to enjoy the foods and lifestyle that they had enjoyed prior to losing teeth.
The advantages of dental implants are numerous, however perhaps the most important are the effects on self confidence. Dental implants are indistinguishable from normal, natural teeth if fitted by a suitably qualified cosmetic dental surgeon. Implants allow the patient to present a natural looking smile to the world, whereas dentures are often ill fitting and uncomfortable.
Today most potential patients will have access to new dental implant technology through the services of a qualified cosmetic dentist. The fitment of dental implants has never been easier or involved as little discomfort. Those using dentures can very easily experience a lasting change to their everyday lives through fitment of dental implants.
