Reap the benefits of dental implants in Kent

Missing teeth are not only detrimental to your smile: from the basic structure of your face, to the way you chew your food, having your teeth in place is important for your dental and overall health.


At Staplehurst Dental in Kent, dental implants are our preferred way to replace missing and damaged teeth, helping you regain lost chewing function and rebuild bone tissue. Unlike other tooth replacement options that simply sit on top of your gums, dental implants fuse with the jawbone, preventing its further deterioration.


Why is it important to replace your missing teeth?


Having missing teeth can completely change the way you chew and digest your food. Gums are not designed for effective chewing, therefore, you may not chew as well, or might use a particular side of your mouth to chew. Because your mouth is the first step in your digestive system, not properly chewed food can be a choking hazard. Furthermore, undigested food can cause stomach problems including acid reflux. Dental implants restore your biting force entirely and help you avoid more serious issues.


Moreover, missing teeth can impair your speech and change the ease in which you say words, causing spitting and lisping. Gaps among your teeth also endanger your healthy teeth by moving them around in your mouth and causing misalignment. More importantly, one or several missing teeth can lead to the deterioration of the jawbone and the collapse of your facial structure.


Why dental implants?


Dental implants are made of surgical titanium. Only a few millimetres wide, these versatile posts have a rippled texture, much like a screw. Your dentist will surgically attach them into the jawbone through a same-day surgical procedure. Dental implants do not simply replace your missing teeth – they also replace the roots of your missing teeth so that prosthetic crowns, dentures and bridges can be supported securely onto them.


Missing teeth not only affect your appearance and self-confidence, they can also have an impact on your ability to talk and chew normally. Fortunately, dental implants can greatly improve your appearance and overall quality of life. Contact us today and find out more about dental implants in Kent.
