Why choose dental implants in Harley Street?

Dental implant DemoEver noticed that there doesn’t seem to be so many people wearing wobbly false teeth these days? Is it because dentures are so much better fitting than before? Partly, but it’s also because a lot of people who, in the past, would have had no choice but to be fitted with dentures are instead opting for dental implants.

In Harley Street, dental implants, which are the most recent generation of replacement teeth, are available from clinics with dental implant surgeons, such as Harley Street Dental Clinic. They are most people’s first choice for replacing lost teeth for a number of reasons.

Replacing the root

There is one big difference between dental implants and dentures or bridges. This is that dental implants replace the root of the tooth, and not just the crown. Roots give teeth their stability, so having replacement teeth with roots makes all the difference to their functionality.

Easier to eat with

Dental implants in Harley Street offer the same chewing power as real teeth. This is way more than people can get with dentures. Even the most well-fitting can only give about 25% of the chewing power, and so people end up being restricted to soft food. With dental implants, people can bite into and chew whatever they like.

No embarrassing wobble

Because dental implants are anchored into the jawbone, there is no chance that they will start to slide around in the mouth after a while. This is what happens with dentures when the jawbone and gum beneath them start to recede.

Strong, healthy jawbone

Dental implants stimulate bone cell renewal, keeping jawbones strong and dense. With no replacement roots in the jaw, the bone soon starts to resorb, losing a surprising amount of size and density in the first year after tooth loss alone. Dental implants help avoid the pointy chinand collapsed cheeks associated with tooth loss.

Easy maintenance

Taking care of dental implants involves careful brushing and flossing to get rid of trapped food and bacterial plaque. Implants can’t decay but they can fall out if gum disease takes hold, so it’s important to have regular deep cleanings with the dental hygienist.
