Looking for a perfect set of teeth?
If one or more of your teeth is missing, cracked or badly damaged, this can seriously affect your self-confidence and lead to compromised dental health further down the line. Every day, we see images in the media of celebrities confidently presenting straight, white, perfect teeth and we want some of that for ourselves. It is human nature to want to look our best, after all. Showing what we can think of as an imperfect or blemished smile to the world can prevent us from having the courage to let go of our inhibitions and laugh and smile with impunity. This can then have a knock-on effect on our friendships, relationships and even our working life.
One highly effective way of restoring our smile and enjoying the sensation of having a perfect set of teeth is through dental implant surgery. There is a growing trend for people signing up for implant dentistry, thanks to the increasingly sophisticated and natural-looking results and the permanence of the solution of securing that perfect smile. The process really can transform the way you look, boost the way you feel and change the way you tackle life.
Why choose dental implants?
Dental implant technology is an effective, permanent solution for replacing a missing or broken tooth within a set of teeth and is fast becoming the standard option for issues such as gaps, cracks and unsightly areas within the mouth.
Implant dentistry covers a wide range of treatments, from single tooth implant surgery to more complex cases involving multiple teeth or larger gaps that need to be filled with a combination of dental implants and other corrective oral surgery techniques. Dental implants are proven to last longer and have a much better impact on your long-term dental health than attempting to hide the gap with cosmetic veneers or opting for cheaper treatments without making yourself aware of the full facts or implications.
Dental implants are safe, highly durable and can look and feel incredibly realistic. Many patients forget they are even there most of the time. Treatment options are evolving fast, with associated anesthetizing and sedation techniques rendering the process as painless and straightforward as possible.
Your journey will begin with a comprehensive dental implant consultation to make sure that you fully understand the implications of having a tooth implant inserted into your mouth. Your dentist will then talk you through your options for teeth implants and give you a schedule of appointments required to carry out the procedure.

How long do dental implants last?
Dental implants are a reliable, durable and proven option for replacing a tooth, or set of teeth in the longer term. Longevity of life depends upon a number of factors, including the patient’s lifestyle, dietary choices, ongoing care and maintenance of the affected area and overall dental hygiene. Some pre-existing medical conditions may also have an effect on the implant’s ability to settle into its new position and remain viable. Please ask your dentist if you have any concerns around any medical conditions that you may be affected by. You may also wish to consult your GP or another medical specialist for further information and support.
If a dental implant is looked after correctly, it can last up to 20 years, or even longer, making the initial investment a wise one to ensure longer lasting cosmetic results and increased dental health. Advances in dental implant technology has made the treatment more sophisticated with far higher levels of success than ever before.
Care must be taken to look after the exposed abutment and crown to maintain viability and reduce the risk of damage occurring. Take care when chewing and remember to brush and floss adequately. Visit your dentist regularly for check-ups to ensure ongoing dental health and to make sure that no damage to the implant is left untreated.
What are the benefits of a perfect set of teeth?
As well as the increased levels of confidence and self-esteem mentioned above, many dental implant patients have reported enhanced levels of success and fulfillment in other areas of their lives. New relationships, better job prospects and a better way of life have all been cited as stemming from the added assurance and zest for life that a restored smile can provide.
As well as aesthetic and lifestyle advantages, a perfect smile brings many health benefits. Gone are the gaps that can harbor bacteria and impacted food debris. Your hygienist can clean your teeth much more effectively without having to worry about adding damage to any broken teeth or causing you pain through contact with an exposed nerve or damaged tooth.
Finally, your new set of teeth will hopefully encourage you to take better care of them, establishing an effective dental hygiene routine that incorporates flossing, brushing and rinsing with an appropriate mouthwash at least twice a day. You will also be more inclined to book and attend routine check-ups to make sure that your new implants are in good working order, which can help us keep a closer eye on the rest of your teeth and to spot any problems elsewhere in your mouth while they are still in their early stages.
