There’s nothing worse that bits of your body not working properly, and it’s something that we never really adjust to, especially when it’s our teeth that are no longer performing as we expect them to.
This is the burden that many people have to bear when they lose one or more of their teeth. In Kent, dental implants are the choice of more and more people who have lost teeth. This is because they do the best all round job of replacing both the look and the functionality of lost teeth.
Here at Centre for Aesthetic Periodontics and Implantology Limited in Kent, dental implants are a large part of our work. Our highly skilled implant dentists are often used by other dentists, who refer their patients to us.
Eat what you like
One of the biggest problems with losing your teeth is discovering that you can no longer eat the crunchy, chewy foods that so many of us love. We cannot bite or chew with our gums and many people find these actions hard even with artificial teeth on bridges or dentures.
The root of the problem
The big difference between dental implants in Kent and other forms of artificial teeth is that dental implants replace the root as well as the crown.
The root is what keeps teeth in place and gives the stability that allows your teeth to bite and chew. Dental implants, which are artificial teeth on titanium posts fixed into the jawbone, can withstand up to 200lbs of force, which is more than is required by an adult male for chewing.
The other great thing about dental implants in Kent is that once they are in place, you can more or less treat them as you would your own natural teeth, looking after them with careful regular brushing and flossing. This is to keep the gums around them healthy. The porcelain teeth themselves are impervious to dental decay. All in all, there is no replacement tooth option that more closely mimics the teeth that nature gave you.
