If you lose a tooth or in fact many, there are a few reasons why you need to get them replaced. The trauma can impact on the teeth left behind leaving them vulnerable to movement and infection, it can affect the bite of your mouth- putting strain on your jaw joints, and it can be devastating to your confidence by leaving you with an ugly smile. Dentures work well but can often be unstable; bridges are fine too but they have a shelf-life before having to be replaced. So if you want an option where you don’t have to worry about anything for the rest of your life, the best choice you can make is a dental implant/crown combination. To fit the implant, the designated area needs to be digitally x-rayed in order to determine the precise point where the implant will go. Then a laser will make a small hole through the gum and into the jaw, into which the implant is screwed. Once in, more images will be taken, and possibly even a mould to determine the exact size of the crown that is required and once made, it can be attached into place. The placement of the implant can be done in an hour and you should be up and running in a couple of weeks. For a lot of people, this will be quite a treatment to embark on, especially financially, so you should get in touch with Mulberry Dental Care of Surrey who serves Molesey: they can give you professional advice about Implant surgery and ease any worries that you may have.
