Are dental implants worth it?

Are dental implants worth it?

For those with missing teeth – whether it’s one, several, or even a few in a row – dental implants in Stourbridge can be a great option for restoring your smile. In this post, we’ll outline the positive reasons to pursue this simple, effective treatment – and why, in our opinion, it’s 100% worth the investment.

Tooth implants can last a lifetime

 With the right care, from brushing and flossing regularly to cutting down/quitting smoking, your new tooth implants can last for years. They’re made of durable, lasting materials, so you’ll be able to eat, talk and smile as before. And, being fixed in place, they won’t fall out or dislodge or knock any of your other teeth. To keep on top of your new teeth, we recommend using interdental brushes to clean between the teeth, and you can also use fluoride mouthwash between brushes. Finally, regular dental check-ups at our dental practice with our dedicated Dentists will ensure your teeth stay on the right track.

Our dental implants look discreet

Once your new tooth implants are in and healed, it’s often nearly impossible to tell that some of your teeth aren’t natural. The main part of an implant is called the rod, usually made of titanium, which is screwed into your jaw. Once it’s fused to the bone and your gum skin has grown back, your crown is fitted on the top – so there should be no part of the metal rod still visible.

The treatment isn’t invasive

Having your tooth implants installed is straightforward, requiring just a small hole to be drilled in your gum, for the rod part of the tooth to be screwed into. It’ll then need to heal before the crown is fitted.

Healing time is minimal

It can take just a matter of weeks for the rod to fuse to your jaw, though in some situations, it can take a few months. You might have a bit of pain and swelling following treatment, but this will ease over time.
