Dental Implants: The Only Permanent Way a Dentist Can Restore Your Smile

Dental implants are an excellent treatment for anyone who has lost teeth. They are the only permanent method by which a dentist can replace your missing teeth, and at The Mall Stockport our implant team can replace everything from one to all of your natural teeth with the help of implants, combined with crowns, dentures, or a bridge.

The advantages of dental implants

There are many advantages of dental implants when compared with traditional tooth replacement options, such as a standard bridge or denture. The key point, of course, is their permanence; with good hygiene and regular visits to the dentist and hygienist, your implants could last you a lifetime. But there numerous other benefits, too. . .

Dental implants enable you to eat what you like

Unlike traditional dentures, which can seriously restrict your diet, with implants there are no limitations, and you can eat all of your favourite foods. This is because implants are placed in direct contact with your jaw bone (requiring minor oral surgery under local anaesthetic at The Mall Stockport practice) meaning they provide anchorage similar to natural tooth roots.

Implants help to prevent bone loss

When the tooth roots are lost, the jaw bone begins to resorb or shrink. Implants help to prevent this because of their direct contact with the bone, and because they are made from titanium, which supports bone growth.

Your teeth will stay where you want them to be

Many denture-wearers fear that their teeth will fall out in public. Dental implants hold dentures firmly in your mouth at all times. We have helped many denture sufferers at The Mall Stockport dental practice, with a procedure known as denture stabilisation – using between four and eight implants per jaw to retain your dentures exactly where they should be.
