Got some gaps in your smile? How we can help at Byfleet Dental Boutique
Regardless of the cause, having gaps in your smile can really have a negative impact on your confidence. When you find yourself avoiding social occasions or smiling in group photos on a regular basis, something has to be done.
Years ago, the only option available to people who had missing teeth were dentures or partial dentures. While this is still a treatment option, there are many more procedures which may be more suitable to your age group or lifestyle.
At Byfleet Dental Boutique, our dentists in West Byfleet have been helping people restore their smiles for over 10 years and we are proud to be able to offer the following services to people in need of a new smile.
Having a set of dentures fitted is the perfect solution if you have many or all of your natural teeth missing and is a relatively quick way to restore your smile. Our dentists in West Byfleet start by taking an impression of your gum line, these impressions are sent to a dental laboratory to have your dentures made.
Although dentures may take some time to get used to when eating and speaking, some advantages associated with them is having no pain when having them ‘fitted’ and very easy maintenance; perfect for people will mobility or memory issues.
Thanks to developments in dentistry, dentures and bridges are not the only options you have when you have lost teeth.
Dental implants have soared in popularity in recent years and if you are interested in having them fitted, there are many advantages that our dental team can discuss with you.
In essence, dental implants are a set of titanium screws that are attached to your jaw(s). Depending on the prosthesis you are having fitted, a set of overdentures, partial dentures, a bridge or even a single tooth will then be attached to the screws, providing an immediate and immovable set of new teeth.
A key advantage of dental implants is not only their immovability, but the fact they are designed to last a lifetime, providing that they are maintained correctly.
Another advantage to think about is that when you lose your teeth, your jawbone recedes, making things like dentures more difficult to fit correctly. When you have implants fitted to your jaw, bone growth is stimulated; your jawbone meshes around the implants along with blood vessels, which prevents future bone loss from occurring. Implants also prevent your face from appearing sunken due to tooth loss, so provide a natural, permanent boost to your outward appearance.
At Byfleet Dental Boutique, we have extensive experience with restoring smiles through the use of dentures and implants and can help you decide which option is best for you.
