After It’s Been A Knockout

Unlike sharks who can get through as many teeth as they like, humans only get one adult set, so losing them is a big wrench, especially if you’re young and have just had one or more knocked out in a sporting or vehicular accident. If those lost teeth were at the front of your mouth, as they tend to be in cases of knocked out teeth, then you may be feeling even grimmer. It’s one thing not to be able to chew or speak quite clearly. It’s a whole other thing to look all gappy and be faced with a partial denture or a bridge for the rest of your life. Thank goodness then, for the availability of dental implants in Stockport.

Dental implants are available from us at The Mall Stockport. We like to think of them as the next generation of teeth replacement, even though they’ve actually been around for a good 30 years or more, since the 1980s. In that time, they have moved through their experimental stage and are now considered mainstream.

The popularity of dental implant treatment

You may not have heard of dental implants, because people like to keep anything to do with their dental health and beauty all to themselves. But ask around the over 50s and you’ll find a surprising number of them have one or two of these mini miracles of dental engineering secreted under their gums. Ask people who are over 65 and you’re bound to find one or two that have had all their teeth replaced, often with a technique that allows dentists to support an entire arch of teeth on just four implants. Other people have had their dentures stabilised with implants so that they don’t suffer from the dreaded sliding teeth syndrome so beloved of comedians in the late 20th century.

You, however, probably only need to have one or two teeth replaced, and, you’ll be pleased that if you’ve lost up to three teeth in a row, they can be replaced with just one implant supporting three custom-made crowns on a bridge.

The other good news is that your dental implants from The Mall, Stockport could last you the rest of your life if you are diligent in your dental hygiene routines.
