Struggle with dentures in Kent? Dental implants could be the solution for you

20 September 2016

Although dentures are still commonly used to replace problem teeth, we often hear that people are having issues with them. Despite looking ever more realistic and natural, they still appear to loosen the longer they are worn, which is obviously not ideal for those using them.

The crux of this issue is that dentures are not connected to the root of your teeth and only replace broken or missing crowns. This means that for many using them, they can potentially come loose at any time.

Advances in technology have brought about the availability of dental implants for use where teeth are damaged or missing. Because implants replace teeth roots they are more comfortable, secure & longer lasting. Made from titanium, which is supports bone growth, they are placed directly in your jaw in a minor operation undertaken by our experienced implant dentist.

You don’t need to have your dentures completely removed to have implants, they can be adapted to rest securely on your dental implants. You can still remove them to be cleaned, besides that they will remain in place.

After a healing period to ensure your implants are perfectly secured in your jaw bone and able to support your teeth with the strength similar to your natural tooth roots, permanent new teeth can be attached.

Overall it is a very worthwhile and effective procedure and one which will stand the test of time. The teeth which replace your natural ones look aesthetically very similar to natural teeth and are incredibly strong and durable. Although it is still important that you maintain good oral health with implants and clean your teeth regularly so you can get the best out of them.
