The fear of losing our teeth is something many of us experience. Today however, tooth loss does not have to be a permanent problem. Here at Castelnau Dentists in Barnes, our dental implant system provides a safe and reliable method for replacing teeth, whether you have lost one, several or all of them. Your new teeth look and feel natural, and allow you to live, laugh and enjoy life with total confidence.
Dental implants are usually the best solution for permanently replacing one or more teeth as they are designed to completely replace your old tooth - at both a root and crown level.
A dental implant is an artificial tooth root made of titanium which replaces your missing tooth. Your dental implant dentist at Castelnau Dentists will insert the implant into your jaw bone where the titanium then integrates with your bone. Just like your tooth root did before, the implant then builds a stable foundation for the crown, which will become the visible part of your new tooth.
Dental implants are widely considered to be the most successful method of tooth replacement used today, because they give a number of benefits to patients.
A Natural Smile
A dental implant looks and feels just like your natural tooth. The color, shape and contour of the new tooth can be made to match. The result is a natural smile, that can bring back your confidence and quality of life. With your new teeth sparkling on the outside, you will soon feel a smile coming back on the inside.
Eat and Speak Normally
Did you have to give up on some of your favorite dishes since you lost your teeth? Or do you feel self-conscious when talking to your colleagues and friends, because missing teeth or dentures make it more difficult to speak clearly? Dental implants bring back the full function of natural teeth. So no matter how hard, crunchy or sticky the food, dental implants can put it back on your menu. And they can restore your clear speech for the next business presentation or long chats with your friends.
Neighbouring Teeth Stay Intact
Other restoration methods (such as a bridge) often require neighbouring teeth to be ground down to anchor the restoration in your mouth. Dental implants do not harm neighbouring teeth.
Stable and Comfortable Fit
Since dental implants are fixed to your jaw bone, they are usually more stable, more comfortable and long-lasting than other restorations. On top of that, dental implants are made of biocompatible materials, which means that your body tolerates them.
A Long-Lasting and Proven Solution
Dental implants are very durable. With proper care and good oral hygiene, implants will last for many years or even a lifetime. Decades of research have gone into their functionality and stability, since the first patient received modern dental implants in 1965.
Implant treatment can be considered a long-term investment into your health and your wellbeing - in short, an investment into your life. Compared to other restorations, costs can seem higher at first glance. However, higher maintenance costs, the potential increase in lost jaw bone, and, ultimately, the loss of even more teeth can make other restorations more expensive in the long run.
