Dental Implants are one of the most important advancements in dentistry; they are used for both aesthetic and functional reasons.

When your teeth are in correct alignment, they prevent each other from moving. If you are missing a tooth or teeth, this allows adjacent and opposing teeth to move and impinge into the vacant space, your teeth can become crooked and therefore hard to clean and this can lead to decay and inevitably tooth loss. Also when a tooth root is absent, your jawbone will deteriorate as it is no longer being used to secure your tooth, and this may result in changes of facial muscle structure.

Dental implants are fake tooth roots, on which crowns (artificial teeth) are placed. Dental implants are used to replace missing or damaged teeth and are fitted into the jaw bone, and because of this they look and feel very natural and comfortable.

Benefits of
dental implants

There are many benefits to dental implants. The first is that they help to support the jaw bone, which can be vulnerable to wear after tooth loss, something that can cause a decline in both function and facial aesthetics. 

Additionally, because dental implants are inserted into the jaw bone they result in much greater bite pressure than other tooth replacements or bridges. Gum recession is also slowed by choosing dental implants, and they can even help restore clearer speaking function along with the vital confidence that goes with it. 

Finally, dental implants are a popular choice because they can be used as replacements for a single tooth or multiple teeth. Once they are installed, dental implants are also very easy to take care of too, with a normal oral health routine that includes flossing and brushing. Oral hygiene is just as important for your new dental implant as it is for your natural teeth. Your surrounding teeth and gums are still prone to the effects of gum disease.

Airport Smile Lounge’s approach to dental implants

Here at Airport Smile Lounge, we know that many patients worry about the discomfort and time that can be involved with dental implants. That is why our caring team offers local anaesthetic for the implant procedure and provides the most comprehensive guidance on how to care for your implant so it heals as quickly and effectively as possible. Most patients report little if any discomfort and may resume their normal day-to-day activities the following day. After your dental implant has fused with your jawbone (usually it takes 3-6 months) it is uncovered and a connector (called an abutment) is attached. It is to this abutment that your replacement crown or bridge is secured.
