Restore your smile with confidence: Dental implants at Charlton Road Dental

As reported in the Metro newspaper recently, almost 75% of British people don’t have a full set of natural teeth, with 6% missing all their original teeth entirely. Dentists in Japan have discovered a way to regrow teeth in animals and the first human trial is apparently just a few months away. Missing teeth is a surprisingly common issue, and the reasons can vary. Accidents, gum disease, or even tooth decay can all lead to tooth loss.

While some people might not consider a missing tooth a major concern, it can have a significant impact on your life. Missing teeth can:

Affect your ability to chew: With a missing tooth, eating and drinking can be difficult and can place stress on the remaining teeth. You may get more food debris trapped between teeth, which can cause pain and tooth sensitivity.

Cause your remaining teeth to shift: This can lead to problems with your bite and even jaw pain. Over time, the remaining teeth can appear crooked, and new gaps can appear between teeth causing issues with dental hygiene & cleaning between the gaps.

Reduce your confidence: A missing tooth can make you feel self-conscious about your smile. This means you will be less likely to laugh and show your teeth. When we replace your teeth, it can improve self-esteem and give you the confidence to smile once more.

Reduce bone structure: The missing tooth can reduce the stimulation of the bone tissue and can cause the jawbone to deteriorate. This can lead to a sunken appearance to the jaw.

While we can’t re-grow our teeth quite yet, modern dentistry offers a fantastic alternative solution for missing teeth in the form of dental implants.

What are dental implants?

Dental implants are small, screw-like posts made from biocompatible titanium. These are surgically inserted into your jawbone, where they fuse with the bone over time. Once healed, a custom-made crown is then attached to the implant, creating a strong, natural-looking replacement tooth.
