Every dentist will tell you that you need to replace any teeth that either fall out, get knocked out or have to be removed. If you don’t, there can be some pretty dreadful repercussions that develop over time. Your remaining teeth can start to drift out of place, tip into the gap and even fall out. Plus, the bone where the tooth used to be can start to melt away. The more teeth you lose, the more serious the problems can become, and you can find yourself unable to chew crunchy foods anymore, or even speak clearly.
But how to replace those lost teeth? All of us want replacement teeth that work well and look like real teeth. Time was, you had a choice between dentures and fixed bridges, both of which have their drawbacks. Now though, you can get dental implants in Barnsley, here at PDC Dental Implants.
At first glance, dental implants in Barnsley may seem too pricey, but they offer such great advantages over the other two kinds of replacement teeth. They last for a long time, they can work out as comparable in price, perhaps even cheaper than dentures or bridges, both of which have to be replaced every 10 years or so.
The main job of teeth is to bite into and chew up food so that it can be swallowed and the nutrients extracted. Doing so with dentures is pretty hard; they can only withstand about a quarter of the chewing force of natural teeth. Because dental implants are fixed into the jawbone and become as firmly held as a natural tooth, they can withstand as much chewing force as natural teeth. This means you can eat whatever you like again, and therefore get all the nutrition you need.
The other great thing about dental implants is that because they are firmly fixed into the jawbone, they won’t start sliding around a few months or years down the line. You will be able to speak clearly.
Getting dental implants in Barnsley starts with a thorough consultation. Why not call and book one today?
