For many people, visiting the dentist is a nonchalant activity. Something they know they have to do and it’s no bother. But for some individuals, it is a truly terrifying experience. Thanks to things such as horror films, even the sound of a drill is too much for some. Due to this fear, these individuals will actively ignore visiting their local dental practice. By not receiving regular check-ups, small problems which can be easily treated build up to create bigger problems. This means that if the individual is finally able to visit a dentist despite their fears, this experience can be very overwhelming due to the problems that have arisen because of their absence.
Dental implants have become incredibly popular and there seems no chance of that slowing down anytime soon. At Lion Dental Centre, Stourbridge, we can guarantee you super-strong and natural looking dental implants that will give you a boost in confidence.
There are a few reasons why someone may desire dental implants or is referred for tooth implants by their dentist.
Although nothing can beat what nature gave us, dental implants are the next best thing. They both look and feel like natural teeth, meaning your quality of life will only improve. There is no need to change your diet and they are actually good for your bone health. The process of drilling them into your jawbone makes them incredibly strong and durable. There is no awkward removal like with dentures. Also, dental implants are extremely versatile. You can have one, to replace a single tooth. Or if multiple teeth are needing to be replaced, our tooth implant expert, Mario Veltri, is highly experienced at implanting both single and multiple dental implants.
The dental implants process in total, takes around 12 months. In this blog post, we’ll outline the treatment you’ll receive so you know what to expect.
If you have a lot of teeth missing, you might assume that in order to replace them, you need an individual dental implant to take the place of each natural tooth you lost? This is not the case at all. This would be a very costly and invasive way of doing things. It will put a lot of pressure and weight on your jaw when it’s simply not necessary.
The British Dental Journal estimates that 75% of us could benefit from better tooth alignment. That’s most of us! Not only can having your teeth straightened give you a more attractive smile, but also in the case of aligning overlapping teeth, prevent you from having tooth surfaces that cannot be reached with your toothbrush. This is a situation that often leads to food getting trapped in the teeth and consequently tooth decay or gum disease.
If you’ve put off seeing the dentist for a few weeks, months, or even years, you’re not alone. The national smile survey revealed that a huge percentage of adults in the UK have not visited the dentist in over two years and we are betting a main reason for this is nerves and anxiety. Dental fear is a real phenomenon and we’d be helping nobody if we didn’t acknowledge it.
