The great thing about dental implants in Camden is that once they are in, they are usually there for life. In fact, they will even go to the grave with you, giving archaeologists of the future something to ponder over.
Here at Ace Dental, we offer a menu of implant-based treatments to give you back fully functional teeth after tooth loss, as well as a smile that looks entirely natural. Unlike dentures and bridges, if you look after your implants, you can expect them to last for the rest of your life.
Modern dentistry sees implants as the optimum tooth replacement method because implants replace the whole tooth, both root and crown. The best time to replace a lost tooth with dental implants in Camden is as soon as you can after your tooth has fallen out or been removed.
This is because the longer you leave a gap in your jawbone, the more chance there is that the strength and density of your jawbone will deteriorate, threatening the health and viability of your remaining teeth. This goes on to affect your general health and wellbeing. Even one lost tooth puts your remaining teeth under more strain when you eat. As these teeth start to move into the gap left by the missing tooth, they can also become harder to keep clean and healthy.
If you lose several teeth, it becomes much harder to eat anything but soft food. Speaking clearly can become more difficult too. If you have lost teeth at the front of your mouth, your self-confidence may also be greatly affected.
In Camden, dental implants solve all these issues by replacing the roots of lost teeth along with the crowns. Without the roots to stimulate the jawbone, it starts to shrink back. As it does so, problems commonly associated with tooth loss and denture wearing come along. These include badly-fitting false teeth, and that pointy-chinned, sunken look of premature ageing.
Dental implants help you solve or avoid these problems. Implants can replace one or two teeth, a few, or whole sets of teeth on the upper and lower jaw. You do not necessarily need to have one implant per tooth. Implants can also stabilise wobbly dentures.Back to Blog
