Dental implants Ryde are an excellent method of restoring your teeth following tooth loss as a result of poor oral hygiene or an injury to your mouth. Here at Spa Dental Ryde our dentists have extensive experience in dental implant surgery and will help you restore the function of your mouth and the aesthetic appearance of your smile using dental implants Ryde.
Dental implants Ryde are highly popular due to their advantages in replacing missing teeth in comparison to traditional options such as dental crowns or bridges. Dental implants provide a permanent solution to replacing your missing teeth. The implant itself is securely embedded into the jawbone therefore it is more secure than wearing dentures or bridges. The implant is inserted into the bone socket of your missing tooth and requires approximately 3 to 6 months to fuse with the surrounding jawbone so that it is held firmly in place for life. A replacement crown, bridge or a set of dentures is then attached directly to the implant so that they fit securely in place. Dental implants also give a natural feel and appearance to your choice of prosthetics. With dental implants you will feel comfortable and confident at the same time.
With good oral hygiene and regular visits to our dentist here at Spa Dental Ryde, your dental implants can last for 15 years to life. It is important to maintain a good dental hygiene routine and undergo regular assessments of your teeth and gums including appointments with the hygienist to ensure the prevention of gum disease which otherwise may cause your dental implants to move or fall out.
Another important advantage of dental implants is that they can prevent bone decay or bone loss. Missing teeth can cause your jawbone to shrink as it loses its function and this can have detrimental impact on your surrounding healthy teeth causing misalignment issues and even further tooth loss. Dental implants initiate a process known as osseointegration which promotes bone regeneration and prevents further complications in the future.
