Dental implant treatment with Dental Perfection at our North London clinic
At Dental Perfection in Hampstead, we don’t believe tooth replacements are just about appearance. Although they are technically a cosmetic procedure, the benefits of dental implants can have genuine and positive life-altering effects for our patients.
So what benefits of dental implants will you see during and after your treatment here at our Hampstead clinic?
Benefits of dental implants – Improve your quality of life
Gaps between teeth can be unsightly - yes. But having them filled can do so much more than just make your smile look better.
Dental implants look and feel real
Tooth implants replacing a single tooth are custom made to match your remaining teeth. One of the real benefits of dental implants is that the porcelain crowns are made to mirror your originals in both colour and texture. You can view some of our before and after implant photos of previous patients to see just how good they look.
Even our implant-retained dentures are made to considerably more lightweight and realistic than traditional dentures. With professionally-crafted and -painted teeth and gums, implant-retained dentures also fit in your mouth without the need for a large palette surrounding your gums. They simply clip on meaning your mouth is left comfortable and uncrowded.
This realistic appearance means no one will even know they aren’t your real teeth. Better still, the natural feeling means you’ll forget they aren’t real too, leaving you to enjoy your life.
Dental implants can improve your speech
Gaps in your teeth, even when not at the front of your mouth, can make a lot of everyday things difficult. One of the main troubles caused is when you speak as missing teeth can cause lisps and whistling. This can have a massive impact on your confidence with further knock-on effects on your day-to-day life.
The main benefit of dental implants is that they can solve these issues because they behave just like real teeth. Unlike other tooth replacement methods, implants are held in place by your jaw bone giving them extra strength and security. So, you never have to worry about your crown flying out mid-sentence!
Dental implants let you eat normally again
A very common (and understandable) complaint we hear from patients about dentures is that they don’t stay in place well enough when they’re eating foods like apples or steak. And even when you only have one or two gaps in your teeth, chewing can be difficult, and food can easily become trapped.
With dental implants, this is no longer a problem. No matter how many teeth are replaced, they are held in place by titanium anchors imbedded in your jaw, so the advantage of dental implants is that they are just as stable as real teeth.
Filled gaps mean you can eat comfortably again. Their stability will give you a much more secure biting ability than a normal removable denture.
Dental implants make your life easier
The convenience of tooth implants is a major reason so many people choose to have them. When you’re out with friends or at a social event, you don’t want the embarrassing inconvenience of removing your denture in front of people.
Whilst you’ll still have to remove your implant retained denture after eating and to sleep, there’s no chance of it slipping whilst wearing it. And with our other tooth replacement options, you won’t have to worry about taking them out at all. There is no need for any messy adhesives to keep them in place either making them completely hassle-free.
Another benefit of dental implants is that they’re also extremely easy to care for. You just treat them as you would a real tooth; brush, floss, and make sure you go for regular check-ups and hygienist appointments.
Benefits of dental implants – Better your health
Dental implants at our North London can also have a huge positive impact on your overall health.
Reversing bone loss
There are studies out there that also go to show a massive benefit of dental implants is that they can effectively slow down, stop, and even reverse bone loss.
This can prevent bone collapse and jaw line recession by preserving the surrounding bone around your tooth root. When the titanium post and your jawbone fuse together, it ultimately makes the bone stronger.
Prevent further orthodontic treatment
Your teeth move all the time. When you have an extraction or lose a tooth, the remaining teeth inevitably lean into the gaps. This means your teeth can become wonky and uncomfortable even if you had perfectly straight teeth beforehand.
Dental implants, crowns and bridges fill these gaps to make sure your surviving teeth stay where they are supposed to be.
And if you’re already having orthodontic treatment, a huge benefit of dental implants is that they can they can help speed up your treatment time. Mini implants provide effective anchorage for braces to help guide teeth into the right place quickly.
No need to damage other teeth
With traditional bridges, teeth either side of the gap have to be filed down to hold the replacements and even partial dentures put unnecessary pressure on your other teeth to stay in place.
A popular benefit of dental implants is that they leave your surviving teeth untouched, relying solely on your jaw for stability for the new tooth.
Benefits of dental implants – Good for your wallet too
Dental implants are an investment in yourself. As you can see, it’s worth it because the many advantages of dental implants can greatly improve the quality of your life.
The main benefit of dental implants is that they are the absolute closest you can get to real teeth. If cleaned and cared for properly, your dental implants will last you a lifetime.
Most kinds of tooth restorations need to be replaced regularly. A dental implant, however, is made to last like a real tooth.
One of the most cost-efficient benefits of dental implants is that, if you look after it properly, you should only ever need the one treatment on that tooth. You can view our standard dental implants costs to see what it could cost you.
High success rate
Clinical studies over the past 50 years have indicated a success rate of well over 99% for tooth implants – making them the most successful of all tooth replacement options. If you’re in good health, live a healthy lifestyle, and your dental implant treatment is carried out by a qualified specialist like those at Dental Perfection’s Hampstead clinic, your success rate will be even higher.
From a medical point of view, a massive benefit of dental implants is that they have reassuringly predictable outcomes and are suitable for the vast majority of people.
