When you have missing teeth in your smile, you may feel down in the dumps and far from being sunshine on a rainy day! But with Dental Implants Bondi Junction, you don’t have to feel blue; in fact, you could be smiling a brilliant smile and nobody will know that it isn’t composed of all natural teeth – that’s definitely something worth smiling about!
What are they?
Dental implants is a solution to replacing the missing teeth in your smile by using titanium screws and an abutment to which crowns, dentures or bridges may be attached. The screws are fixed to your jawbone and the metal fuses with your body’s tissues to leave them securely fitted in place, so there shouldn’t be any movement at all when you eat or speak. When they are fitted, a local anaesthetic will be used and the screws will take a few months to become embedded, during which time you will have temporary replacement teeth. Once they have settled, you will then be able to go back to your dentist and have your proper replacement teeth fitted.
Why should I choose dental implants?
The aesthetic results of dental implants are enough alone to get excited about. With implants, nobody will be able to tell that you don’t have all your natural teeth. Replacement teeth will be made to complement any remaining natural teeth that you have left, so the results are seamless. What’s more, you should find that implants are comfortable and even forget that you don’t have your natural teeth. They are easy to look after in the way that you would with your natural teeth by simply brushing, flossing and visiting the dentist for regular check-ups. If you do this, implants could last you a lifetime!
Another benefit of choosing dental implants is that they can help to make your face look more youthful. When patients have missing teeth, they can experience a shrunken mouth due to the structure being lost where the gaps in the smile are. However, once these gaps are filled in, it can give the face the stability it needs to shine radiantly – hello, sunshine! And, whilst you’re looking hot, you can head out for a date without the worry of your replacement teeth letting you down. They won’t be loosening while you eat and chat, they’re in it for the long haul!
What are the next steps?
Choosing whether to have implants will partly depend on what your dentist advises is the right treatment for you. This will involve an examination of your mouth in order to determine what the treatment options are. Booking in for a consultation to discuss your concerns is the best course of action in the first instance. You will be able to ask as many questions as you need to about the different treatments available and if dental implants are an option for you, you can find out more details during this time to ensure that you are confident and happy about the treatment plan. After all, nobody wants to feel like there’s a cloud hanging over them; not if they can get their sunshine smiles lined up with dental implants and feel confident, they’ve made the informed decision they needed to make to feel radiant.
