Missing teeth can be a massive hindrance not only to your oral health but also to your smile.
Dental implants from Honeysuckle Dental provides Newcastle patients with care of the highest quality. The benefits of dental implants are both functional and cosmetic and can even help to prevent the early signs of ageing that are sometimes associated with tooth loss. If you are missing one or many teeth, dental implants can give you a reason to smile again and allow you to eat and drink whatever you like without having to worry about what comes after. As we age so too do our teeth come under fire and sometimes will break, decay and ultimately be lost to you.
With advances made in medicine and a greater awareness of what is required to live a long and healthy life, so too do we run the risk of outliving our teeth. But this doesn’t mean that you have to live with missing teeth and dental implants have proven time and time again that they are the most effective and efficient way in which to treat missing teeth. Since its discovery in the 1960s, dental implants have been able to replace the aesthetics and function of missing teeth and restoring patients their given right to smile. The team is passionate about helping you to achieve your oral health goals and with dental implants, we can replace your teeth in every way possible without the need for regular visits to us and using materials that are durable enough to last you the rest of your life.
So, what are dental implants?
Dental implants have long been not only the most popular but the most effective way of replacing missing teeth. But what are they exactly? Dental implants refer to the screws that are inserted into your jawbone that will then serve as an anchor for the accompanying porcelain crowns and veneers. The ones that we provide are created from a titanium alloy that is completely biocompatible with your body and allows your implants to fuse directly to your jawbone and function as just another part of your mouth.
Here at Honeysuckle Dental, we make use of the latest in laser dentistry technology to ensure that you receive treatment that minimises trauma, increases incision accuracy, significantly reduces discomfort and has potentially shorter recovery time. The dental implant process takes place in 2 stages. The first of these is the dental implant fixture stage where we embed your implant into your jawbone. The restoration stage is where we attach your crowns and veneers to the dental implant that will then attach your new tooth.
The benefits of dental implants
While most patients elect for dental implant surgery for its cosmetic benefits, they can also make a massive contribution to your oral health. When you have missing teeth, the jawbone underneath begins to dissolve as it is no longer being stimulated. Dental implants halt this process and prevent your face from slumping in the areas where your teeth are missing. Another facet of dental implants is that they are created using durable materials that you are able to treat and clean just like you would your natural tooth. This means less trips to come and see us and every chance that they will last you for decades. Perhaps more importantly, dental implants will give you the ability to flash your smile whenever you want to.
You also need not worry about which foods you can or can’t eat as dental implants can aid in the digestive process by properly being able to break down meals. Dental implants can completely transform your smile and replace your missing teeth with a simple surgical procedure that can last you a lifetime.
