Are you fed up with your partial denture? Does it end up wobbling around no matter how often you take it back to the dentist to get it refitted? Have you broken it on more than one occasion? Would you like to wave it goodbye and replace it with something more reliable? Would you like to put both pieces of your broken denture in the bin and forget about it completely?
Well, replacing a partial denture and the hassles that can come with it is easier than you may think. All you may need to do is invest some money and time, and then you can leave your denture behind with the help of dental implants in Belfast from Blue Sky.
What are dental implants?
Dental implants are tiny posts usually made of titanium that are fixed into your jawbone where your missing teeth used to be. In Belfast, dental implants take an hour or two to put in, under local anaesthetic, with sedation if you are nervous.
The dental implants take the next few weeks to settle into place. They do more than settle however, they actually encourage the growth of bone and blood vessels around them, which secures them in place. This means they hold firm, just like a real tooth.
Once the implants have fused with your jawbone, your new partial denture can be screwed onto them. And then, it never has to come out again. Other people will be unable to tell these are not your real teeth because the crowns of your dental implant are custom-made to blend in with the colour of your surrounding teeth.
All you have to do is look after your new implants as if they were your precious natural teeth. That means you can almost forget about them, and just keep brushing and flossing with the utmost care. Your dental implants cannot get tooth decay but the gums around them can still get gum disease from the build-up of plaque.
In Belfast, dental implants give you back the chance to eat what you like, and speak with clarity, and they should last you for the rest of your life.
