If you are looking for dental implants in Richmond, you may want to consider the experience of the dentists at Sheen when it comes to offering these forms of procedures.

Everyone needs to recognise the importance of being well informed when it comes to issues around the good health of our mouths, especially when we are thinking of any surgical procedure. The following is a quick overview of dental implants and the reasons for their use.

The Procedures

The typical implant is made up of a titanium screw with a crown fixed to the top to form the tooth area. The titanium screw is inserted into the jawbone, resembling the root of a tooth. Once in place, a dental prosthesis, such as a crown, is attached to the section above the gum to complete the procedure and form the new tooth in the area of the mouth it is placed.

Some reasons for use

There are different scenarios where implants may be seen as the best solutions for any given client, their use can provide a variety of different benefits that should improve day to day oral health.

The main use of these implants is restoration, for both single and multiple tooth purposes.

In the case of restoring a single tooth, one of the main aims could be to rebuild strength into the area of the jawline where loss has occurred. This may also help to remove sensitivity in the area, making daily use feel more comfortable.

Another use in terms of single teeth may be for a cosmetic reason, as there are areas of the mouth where loss may make someone feel more conscious. If this feeling is caused by tooth loss, for example the loss of a front tooth in an adult, the client should gain an improvement in their quality of life.

Implants are also practical for use in the restoration of multiple teeth. They can provide solid support when using a dental bridge in the area of the mouth where several teeth have been lost, this provides a permanent solution, as well as combating the loss of strength found in the area of the multiple tooth loss.

For a long time now there has been an awareness that dentures are not the perfect solution in cases of either extreme or total tooth loss.  There is a wider recognition that dentures can be difficult for some people to come to terms with and use in daily life. Implants could be a way forward, providing a viable alternative for most users.

When looking at the main complaints around dentures, people find they slip out of place and move around in the mouth, also dentures wearers report a lack of ability to eat any food they would like. The use of implants in these cases can relieve the wearer’s concern, providing them with a solid and stable tooth structure,  as well as allowing them to have renewed confidence when deciding on what food they wish to eat.

Here we have only covered the primary usage of these implants, for more information please consult with a dental practice to gain information suitable to your needs.
