If you have ever lost a tooth, you will know that that gap can have a daunting physical and emotional impact. You suddenly have an altered appearance, especially if that lost tooth is one of your front social six teeth.
These days there is a stable, long-lasting and reliable solution to missing teeth: dental implants. In Kent, you can have dental implants fitted by the caring professionals at Staplehurst Dental, right in the heart of the Weald.
Great! Let’s start with what dental implants are. Dental implants are tiny metal screws, usually made of titanium. These dental implants are screwed into your jaw bone where that missing tooth or teeth used to be. It then takes a few weeks for the dental implant to settle into place, and then an artificial tooth or bridge can be screwed on it. The crowns of your dental implants will have been custom-made to match the colour of your already existing teeth, so the dental implants will blend in perfectly.
And here’s what makes dental implants in Kent such a popular option
Once your dental implants are inserted and the new artificial tooth or bridge attached, they do not have to come out again! This is because the implants actually mesh with new bone and blood vessels growing around them. This means that you can treat dental implants just like normal teeth. We’d like to say you can forget about them completely, but we want you to keep on brushing and flossing with the utmost care, so instead please treat your dental implants as if you cherished them as much as your own natural teeth.
The other great thing about dental implants is that they keep your jawbone healthy and strong. The jawbone is stimulated to grow by all the hundreds of tiny clashes between your teeth that go on each day. These frictions stimulate new tissue growth and when it is not there, the jawbone instead loses density, both around where a tooth was, and eventually in the inner bone as well. In Kent, dental implants stop this happening, and you retain a younger look along with better eating function.Back to Blog
