Whether you have full dentures, partial dentures or a single missing tooth, implants are the answer. They look natural, feel natural and can prevent further bone loss and the resulting “sagging” of facial tissues when teeth are lost. Many patients experience tooth loss – whether it be a single tooth that is lost or multiple teeth. New advances and technical innovations make it possible to replace missing single teeth permanently, using a titanium dental implant, without treating or touching adjacent teeth, and the end result is that only you will know that you have ever lost a tooth. People affected by tooth loss often find eating in public difficult and traumatic or are not confident about their smile. When teeth are lost your jawbone actually shrinks away, and from scientific research we know that wearing dentures accelerates this process. This in turn affects the muscle tone to the face reducing bone support for the lips and cheeks eventually leading to a typical denture look as immortalised by famous cartoons, where the lips and lower part of the face have collapsed producing an ageing effect on the individuals appearance.
