If you are faced with the loss of your teeth, either through an accident or they just got too old and worn out, then you have 3 options. You get to choose between the latest in tooth replacements with dental implants in Herefordshire, or you can go for the older generations of replacement: dentures and fixed bridgework.
Actually, dental implants in Herefordshire are not that recent an innovation anymore. They have been tried and tested by countless patients before you over the past 30 years or more. Ninety-eight percent of implant operations are successful and there are now millions of people around the world, and thousands in Herefordshire, who are pleased they invested in dental implants.
Dental implants are an investment. Initially they can seem to be more costly than dentures or bridges, but, if you take good care of them, they can last for decades. You may have to replace your dentures or bridges several times. Over time, therefore, dental implants can be just as cost-effective as the alternatives.
Generally speaking, dental implants in Herefordshire are a lot less hassle once they are in place. They are the only way to replace the roots of your teeth. Dentures rely on adherence to the gums and jaw, both of which shrink back after tooth loss, so you will need to get your dentures relined when they become loose. Bridges rely on being fixed to neighbouring healthy teeth, which have to be ground down to have buttress crowns fixed on them.
Because dental implants in Herefordshire are fixed into the jawbone, they are as stable as your natural teeth. They can cope with anything you care to eat, even toffees or crunchy veggies.
They are also very easy to look after. Dental implant-supported teeth stay in your mouth. All you have to do is brush thoroughly twice a day, plus floss well once a day. You also need to have regular hygienist sessions. You need to keep plaque at bay, but you don’t need to worry about tooth decay.
