Not only can having dental implants transform your smile and face, it can transform your life. Even if it has nothing to do with your own confidence, a full smile has an effect on other people. Even if you don’t hide away from the camera, it can have an effect on your eating. Even if you don’t worry about what other people think, missing teeth can have an effect on your surrounding teeth and potentially create more dental hygiene problems in the future. There is more to people than just a pretty smile and at PDC Dental in Barnsley, dental implants are also about more than just creating a pretty smile.
What are dental implants?
Dental implants in Barnsley are ultimately false teeth but false teeth that are so effective and similar to real teeth that no-one will believe they are false. These are the only false teeth that strengthen the jawbone and the only false teeth that have no chance of slipping out when eating. They do not have to be removed for brushing or sleeping. In fact, they are so like your real teeth you will think that overnight you have just grown a new set! Depending on the work needed, dental implants in Barnsley can even be a day procedure. Titanium screws are inserted into the jawbone that once fused, strengthens the jawbone, acting like the root of a real tooth. The implant tooth is then connected to the screw and does not need to be removed again. Two screws can support 3-4 bridged teeth. With a proper dental hygiene routine, your new teeth can last decades.
Replacing the whole upper or lower arch
All-on-4 implants are a new technique that can replace the whole upper or lower arch. Four titanium screws are inserted into the jawbone and then a six-month healing process is required. During the integration time, temporary teeth are affixed so the patient can be denture free. After healing, a high quality permanent bridge is secured to the screws and like with the single tooth replacements, if a proper dental hygiene routine is adhered to, your new set of teeth can last for decades.
