Dental Implants: A Popular Tooth Replacement Option

If you have lost a tooth—or several teeth—you may have looked into tooth replacement options. At Alderley Dental, we offer a variety of tooth replacement options, but dental implants continue to be a popular choice with our patients.

A dental implant is the only tooth replacement option that restores your tooth and its vital tooth root. A tooth root stimulates your jawbone to remain healthy and viable. Often, when a tooth is lost, the jawbone deteriorates. When this happens, you may notice a sunken or aged appearance to your lower face.

You may also note shifting teeth when teeth are missing. This is because the natural inclination is for teeth—without neighbouring tooth support—to tip or slip toward these roomy openings.

Why Patients Choose Dental Implants in Alderley

Dental implants represent a more permanent solution to tooth loss. They are anchored to a replacement root, and they do not require specialised care like other replacement options.

With a dental implant, you brush, floss, visit your dentist as usual, and enjoy a full smile. It’s that simple. Also, with proper care, dental implants can last for decades or even for life.

If you have multiple missing teeth or full tooth loss, a handful of dental implant posts—typically fewer than eight—can support a bridge of replacement teeth to complete your smile as well.

Other tooth replacement options may require relining or even adhesives. Additionally, some options require specific care and cleaning.

The first step is a consultation in our dental clinic. It’s important to learn whether dental implants are the right tooth replacement option for you.
