Tooth loss can be a grave time in Maldon, but it can be an even graver time afterwards trying to decide how to rectify the problem. You should always look at all of the options on the table and get some advice from those that know, people like Advance dental care of Chelmsford. There are first the health reasons behind finding a replacement as the loss of a tooth or teeth can put extra strain on the remaining teeth and cause them to move and suffer from infection and further tooth decay. But there is also a cosmetic reason to get a tooth replaced because not only can it show on your face, but it can also look ungainly when you smile. Dental bridges are good, as are partial dentures, but the best way to have a tooth replaced is to go for a dental implant. It is a run-of-the-mill treatment these days, mainly due to the precision technology that surrounds it. The basic principles of implant procedures remain the same- it still involves screwing a small titanium rod into the jaw bone in order to take the new fitting, but long gone are the epic recovery times associated with this treatment in the past because of key-hole laser surgery that is so precise, whilst limiting the damage done to surrounding gum tissues, that some implants can be done in a day. They are strong, infection free and in forever, becoming the foundations for new crowns, bridges or dentures. Call 01245 268 494 for a free consultation at Advance Dental Clinic in Chelmsford.
