If your teeth are starting to wear out and fail, then you will be thinking about what makes a good replacement method. At Ace Dental, we know that it is not just about how realistic the teeth look, but also about how well they perform, which is why we recommend replacing failing teeth with dental implants in Camden.
If you have never heard of dental implants in Camden, then you are in for some really good news. This method of tooth replacement has now been available for over 30 years. This means it has been through its experimental stage and those who did the experimenting have discovered it to be a really versatile method of tooth replacement. It is also one that offers a really strong and stable restoration that does everything a natural tooth can do.
Strength and stability
The strength and stability come from the fact that dental implants are embedded into the jawbone. Once they have been inserted, under local anaesthetic and with sedation if you need it, dental implants integrate with the jawbone. They are made of titanium. This stimulates the bone to produce new tissue which grows all over the surface of the implant. After this process is complete, which takes several weeks, the implant will be held in place as securely as a natural tooth.
Dental implants can withstand multidirectional chewing forces of around 97kg or 200lbs, which is more than the average male chew. This means that you can eat whatever you like again. If you have been without teeth for a while, you will know what a godsend that can be. Neither dentures nor fixed bridges can offer the chewing power of dental implants.
Dental implants, which are the roots of the restoration, can be used to support a single crown, or up to three crowns on a bridge. They can also be used in conjunction with other implants to support an entire arch of teeth, on as little as four implants.
In Camden, dental implants can last for decades if they are well taken care of. Maintenance requires diligent brushing and flossing and regular hygienist trips, to avoid gum disease.
