We would never underestimate the hugely corrosive effect of missing or failing teeth, not only on your health but on your self-confidence. Although recent research suggests that healthy teeth are much more popular these days, millions of British adults suffer with tooth loss. It can be unattractive, painful and embarrassing.
For many decades, solutions have been around such as bridges and full and partial dentures. But bridges require healthy adjacent teeth to be filed down to support them, increasing the potential that these anchor points could fail. Dentures, too, have their own stabilisation problems as gums recede with age. A good fit today does not guarantee a harmonious fit in the future. Missing teeth cause bone loss in the jaw and we have witnessed plenty of patients with pinched lips and sunken cheeks. No matter how good traditional solutions are at addressing these issues aesthetically, their function will never be as good as those outcomes using dental implants. Implants can replace single or multiple teeth, support over-dentures and deliver the All-on-4 ‘teeth in a day’ solution. Implanted teeth feel, look and act like your own natural teeth.
Why trust implants?
