Why dental implants are the best option to replace missing teeth

November 29, 2016

Dentures, bridges and implants are three different methods that can be used to replace missing teeth. Dentures work very well for many people, but others find they never can quite get them to fit well, and that they move around in the mouth. They have also been known to affect the way that food tastes. Bridges can be a great option to replace missing teeth; however, they do involve filling in the teeth that are adjacent to the missing tooth, which can sometimes make these teeth weak and can give them an increased chance of developing decay in the future. Although all tooth replacement methods have their benefits depending on the patient’s needs, Staplehurst Dental Practice says the most effective and beneficial way to replace a missing tooth is to have a dental implant. Kent patients can receive anywhere between one implant and a full set of implants to replace a whole mouthful of missing teeth.


According to the European Federation of Periodontology (PED), missing teeth have been replaced by dental implants since the 1960s. They are able to support crowns, bridges and even dentures and there is now a large amount of research to show the effectiveness and convenience of dental implants. Kent clinic, Staplehurst Dental Practice, says that nearly everyone who would like to receive dental implants can do so. However, the bone tissue needs to be fully developed so it is able to hold the implant in place, therefore patients need to be over 18 years old. Kent dental implants will last for a number of years.If cared for as recommended by your dentist, there is a high chance that you will never have any issues with your implants, as they are designed to be a long-term, problem-free solution.


Staplehurst Dental Practice make its dental implants affordable to many of its patients by offering 0% interest finance option and accepting many dental plans. To find out more about dental implants in Kent, make sure you call the clinic for further information, or make an appointment to discuss your options with a dentist. Teeth replacement options have never been more convenient and natural looking.
