Are Dental Implants Safe for My Long-term Oral Health?

It’s fair to say that none of us go through life with a complete set of teeth. During our lifetimes, we’re likely to lose teeth from decay, gum disease or some form of trauma. Losing teeth can make you feel conscious about your appearance and it can also lead to irregular biting habits. Considering the possible solutions to these types of problems, many patients tend to question the following – “are dental implants safe as a long term solution?”

A dental implant is essentially an artificial tooth that replaces your natural tooth, fixing it using a titanium root in the gum. Here are some reasons why dental implants can be your safe, long term solution to missing teeth.

How are dental implants a safe long term solution?

They are an adequate long-term solution

Dental implants are considered a secure, fixated long term solution for your missing teeth problems. Unlike dentures that have the ability to slip from your teeth, implants are fitted to your jawbone, making them a permanent fixture in your mouth. Around 2-3 months after they’ve been fitted they would have completely healed in your mouth.

They protect the surrounding teeth

One of the biggest benefits that come from having dental implants is their ability to protect the surrounding teeth around your missing tooth. As the implants replace the structure of the jaw bone, it helps to support the single tooth and saves the surrounding jaw structure from compensating for the gap. This can ensure normal functionality and save the appearance of your natural teeth being risked.

They’re more durable

Dental implants are made from durable materials that are non-corrosive. This means with the right care and maintenance, your implants can be much longer lasting than your alternative teeth restoration treatments.

They improve your facial and bone features

Dental implants help to preserve your bone and reduce the chances of deterioration that can lead to the loss of jawbone amount. They can also preserve your natural teeth tissue as in some cases, the need to reduce or shave the surrounding teeth to fit the implant isn’t required. Not only does this provide long-term health benefits but it can also improve your facial and bone features for the future.

Initially I was quite apprehensive about having 2 implants, but upon my consultation with Gavin ., i felt encouraged by his knowledge and advice . The whole experience in a very relaxed atmosphere could not have been any better. I am well impressed by their professionalism and expertise in this Practice and would most certainly give them a Top Class recommendation .

I came to dental solutions with severe anxiety of dentists and Lauren was so helpful, kind and patient with me. For the first time in years I've found a dentist who I feel comfortable with. Thank you

I had a wisdom tooth extracted by Gavin after having toothache due to my tooth breaking. I was nervous as I had not had a tooth removed by injection before. Gavin was reassuring, explained the procedure fully and it was over quickly with no pain. All staff at the practice are caring, friendly and professional and I have been going for many years. I highly recommend Dental Solutions.

Can’t speak highly enough of this practice and in particular Lauren. 2 years ago I walked in and was so nervous I cried just as the sight of the chair. Her and the staff have been so patient and understanding and have worked with me to overcome my phobia. This week I had a filling and was absolutely fine, my family couldn’t believe it. Reception staff are lovely and really accommodating too. So glad I found them, I don’t dread the dentist anymore.

A really Five Star Dental Practice! Upon arrival I was greeted by their most friendly welcoming receptionists. it seems nothing is 'too much trouble' to them. Gavin is similarly very friendly and the surgery is kitted out with the most high-tech modern equipment. On my first visit Gavin examined my teeth and explained my options to me giving me his recommendation for treatment and reasons why. Their Co-ordinator prepared a detailed quote for my treatment and went through it in detail with me, ensuring I understood everything; she had plenty of time for me as a patient. From the outset I had complete confidence in entrusting them with my dental care and the final results are truly amazing. Gavin and Richard could not have been more professional and my treatment was made as painless as possible. Dental Solutions provide a truly outstanding service and I thank them for my new 'long lost' smile and renewed confidence, especially when dining out and talking with people. I can't recommend them too highly.

A first class experience from start to finish. Despite being fearful of visiting the dentist, Gavin put me at ease with his gentle unhurried manner. I was surprised at how relaxed I actually felt undergoing treatment for a crown and the removal/replacement of front teeth veneers. Having felt self conscious about my front teeth for a long time, I decided to have my old veneers replaced. The results were amazing and far exceeded my expectations. What Gavin achieved was nothing short of a work of art, boosting my confidence tenfold. The practice itself is very welcoming, the customer service excellent and the staff are all very friendly and kind. I cannot recommend this dental practise highly enough.
