Some of the facts of dental implant treatment are that it is fairly expensive and requires invasive surgery. But there are so many advantages to the treatment as solution to missing teeth that it is no wonder so many people are choosing to go through with it and have dental implants put in their mouth.
For as long as humans have been on the earth they have sought to replace any teeth which have been lost for whatever reason. It wasn’t until the latter half of the twentieth century that dental scientists were able to come up with a solution as clever as dental implants. All previous attempts to replace lost teeth have been done external to the gum, either in the form of dental bridges or dentures.
Dental implants are different because they rely on a fixed device which is beneath the gum and acts like a surrogate for the root of the tooth. Once this has been placed in the mouth, your dentist can use it as the base for a replacement tooth. The implant is made of titanium because it naturally fuses with living bone if they are left in contact with one another.
Ask your dentist in central London for a consultation to determine whether dental implants are suitable for you. Millions of people have already done so and are delighted with the realistic and stable alternatives to natural teeth.
