The benefits of dental implants with our dentist in Clapham

Replacing missing teeth is very important, as tooth loss can cause a range of complications in all aspects of your life. To begin with, if you lose a tooth, then this can alter the look of your smile and your face. It can call attention to your mouth, and it can cause reduced self-confidence and self-esteem. If you lose a front tooth then this can be even more embarrassing. Our dentist in Clapham can use dental implants to restore your smile’s appearance and help you regain your self-confidence and self-esteem. The dental implants look like your natural dentition and no one will be able to tell the difference, eventually you can even forget that you lost a tooth once upon a time.

Preventing dental health complications

Another major issue caused by missing teeth is that your remaining teeth try to move and fill the gap left. This causes misalignment of your remaining teeth. Your teeth will become crooked and this means that they will be more likely to develop plaque and tartar, or be affected by cavities, tooth decay and gum disease. Uneven teeth can be affected by additional wear and tear and are more prone to damage in comparison to a neatly aligned, complete smile. By replacing your missing teeth with dental implants, our dentist in Clapham can prevent the misalignment of your remaining teeth. Instead by replacing a missing tooth, the remaining teeth will gain added support, which means that they will be stronger for longer and less likely to be affected by cavities, gum disease, tooth decay, or other stress factors such as added pressure on the teeth and irregular wear and tear.

Restoring mouth function

With missing teeth you may find it difficult to pronounce all your words correctly, which makes it difficult to speak as fluently you did before. This can be uncomfortable and embarrassing and it may affect your self-confidence and lower your self-esteem. In a professional environment it may affect your performance. With dental implants our dentist in Clapham can restore your ability to pronounce all words effortlessly and prevent the embarrassment of not being able to speak clearly. You may also find that it is difficult to bite and chew as you did before and you may not be able to eat all your favourite food anymore. With dental implants, the function of your mouth will be restored as it was before losing a tooth, and may even be stronger, as dental implants are fixed into your jaw, whereas natural teeth are slightly mobile. You should be able to eat all your favourite foods once again.

The quicker you address the issues, the fewer complications you will face and the less embarrassment and discomfort you will have to suffer.
