Replacements with staying power

25 July 2017

For many people with missing or problematic teeth in Kent, dental implants are a way to regain their natural dental stability. Unlike removable dentures, implants from Staplehurst Dental Practice can stay with you for the rest of your life, if properly maintained.

The upside of implants

Dental implants in Kent will give you more confidence in biting and chewing than you’d have with removable dentures. And the risk of gum disease is lessened because the implants fill in the gaps in your teeth, leaving fewer spaces for food debris and plaque to gather in. You might want a whole set of teeth replacing due to the tooth decay that can happen with age. Or you might have knocked out a front tooth while playing sports. Whatever your situation, dental implants will have a strong positive effect on the health of your teeth.

A careful procedure

The treatment starts with a detailed assessment of your oral condition. Once the dentist is satisfied that your mouth is healthy enough, they will place small titanium posts into your gums. These act like artificial tooth roots, on top of which the replacement teeth are securely attached. This integrated arrangement means that tiny vibrations, made when you eat or talk, are transmitted to the jawbone. The bone structure is then stimulated as it naturally would be, and it gradually meshes with the titanium posts, forming a strong foundation for your replacement teeth.

With removable dentures, the jawbone doesn’t receive this stimulation. The bone gradually weakens over time, which can result in the ‘sunken’ look that characterises the faces of denture wearers.

Health for the individual

At Staplehurst Dental Practice, we offer a free initial consultation. This will give you an idea of how long your treatment will take and how much it might cost. We know that the final figure can sometimes be off-putting, so we also offer a range of monthly payment plans, to lessen the financial impact of this oral health improvement. When you opt for dental implants in Kent, you’re making a long-term investment in your teeth, which will bring health benefits for decades after the treatment is over.
