What is restorative dentistry, and why should I choose to receive dental implants?
Restorative dentistry is essentially the study, diagnosis, and therefore the management of diseases of the teeth and their surrounding structures and nerve tissues. Restorative dentistry aims to restore the function and health of the teeth as well as improve them aesthetically. Individuals who may consider implants at our dental clinic may be suffering from one or even several missing teeth within the mouth, although many patients may not be fully aware of the importance of filling a gap in the mouth.
Why is it important to replace missing teeth, and receive dental implants in Stoke-on-Trent?
Although the main drive for many patients may be to improve the aesthetic appearance of their smile, missing teeth can have more severe and complex implications than appearance. Missing teeth can cause discomfort or even pain when completing daily dental tasks (such as brushing, flossing, eating, and drinking), however gaps in teeth can also cause speech difficulties, which can dramatically reduce an individual's confidence, and possibly social or career prospects. A gap along the gum line can affect the bone of the patient, causing resorption as it is no longer being stimulated, which can lead to premature ageing of the face, an effect which is not desirable.
The development of oral diseases
Aside from physical effects that missing teeth can cause, there can also be further concerns in terms of oral diseases and infections. A gap within the mouth can cause the surrounding teeth to move into the available space, which can eliminate years of orthodontic work, but it can also lead to a build-up of oral bacteria. A missing tooth can cause increased difficulty when brushing, as well as a build-up of tartar and plaque, which can lead to infections of the mouth, and the development of gum disease.
How do dental implants in Stoke-On-Trent work?
Dental implants in Stoke-On-Trent consist of three parts, the titanium screw (known as the base) acts as a replica tooth root, and has a stabilising effect. The second aspect is less commonly known, and is called the abutment or ‘connector’, the connector’s role is to link the base with the porcelain crown which is customised for each patient in shape and shade of tooth,.
