Losing your teeth can change the dynamics of your smile. The loss of something as obvious as a front tooth can take your smile away completely. Whatever the reason for tooth loss, it is damaging to the appearance of your smile and your oral health. So what are the options? The modern approach to dentistry is all about comfort and effectiveness, which is why we provide dental implants in Birmingham at Sutton Implant Clinic.
A dental implant is a small titanium screw that is fitted into the jawbone in place of the missing tooth root. Once the implant has had time to integrate with the jawbone, it will act like a tooth root and a natural-looking replacement tooth will be attached on top. Whether you have lost a single tooth, several or all of your teeth, you can consider dental implants in Birmingham. Multiple implants can be used to replace teeth in the form of customised bridges or dentures.
Although we like to think that your only worry during treatment will be which social event you can show off your new smile at, we understand that there may be more to it than that. For some, a trip to the dentist can be daunting in itself. This is why it is important for us to get to know you and your teeth, so that you are welcomed into a familiar environment where all of your concerns are listened to. A consultation before receiving dental implants in Birmingham is useful because it gives us the chance to explain the procedure to you in detail and gives us time to put together a treatment plan suited to you.
The benefits of dental implants in Birmingham
Having your teeth replaced after tooth loss will enhance the appearance of your smile. It might mean that your confidence is restored, and you no longer have to feel self-conscious when you laugh and smile in the company of friends. As for your oral health, filling in the gaps will save your remaining teeth as they tend to shift into the gaps if left untreated and become more liable to damage.
