Many people can live for years with missing teeth, feeling like there is no way for them to improve their smile. This can leave them feeling insecure about their appearance and lead to low self-esteem. Sometimes it will impact their social life and leave them feeling isolated from their friends too. If this sounds like you getting dental implants Navan could completely restore your teeth, smile and confidence as well.
This treatment involves having several small titanium screws implanted into your jawbone, allowing for an array of appliances to be attached to complete your smile. How many screws you need to have inserted will depend upon your individual circumstances, but this is something that your dental practitioner will discuss with you when you have a consultation appointment. They will also be able to answer any questions that you may have about the treatment.
Is a gap ruining your smile?
If you have a single gap in your teeth due to one missing tooth your dental practitioner is likely to advise that you have animplant-supported crown fitted. These close the gap in your smile and provide you with a natural looking tooth that blends in nicely with your other teeth. If you are missing a few teeth in different places, then multiple crowns may be attached to the tooth implants to solve this.
When you have several teeth next to each other that need replacing your practitioner is likely to suggest that you have an implant-supported partial denture. You will not necessarily need a tooth implant for every missing tooth, as one screw is capable of supporting more than one artificial tooth. Partial dentures will boost your self-assurance as you will be able to chew confidently on both sides of your mouth once again and show your teeth proudly when you smile.
Do you need a brand new full set of teeth?
Needing to replace a full set of teeth is nothing to worry about. It is easy to have an implant-supported denture fitted, and these can last you for a very long time if you take care of them properly. Your artificial teeth are made to both look and feel as natural as possible, and with a brand-new full set of teeth you are likely to look and feel several years younger. There are several different methods that can be used when it comes to having an implant-supported denture, and you could need between four and twelve screws to support your denture efficiently. Your dental professional will be able to discuss all of the options that are available to you at your consultation appointment and make sure that you get the most suitable treatment for your individual situation.
All-on-four treatment is becoming a popular choice amongst people who want to replace a full set of teeth or upgrade from their removable dentures. Only four screws are needed to support your dentures, and it is just as secure and effective as when a denture is supported by more tooth implants. Once your artificial teeth have been fitted you will be able to chew, bite and speak with confidence, and you will not need to worry about your false teeth becoming loose or falling out as they will be securely fixed into your jaw.
