Facial Aesthetics and Dental Implants in Kent
Parrock Street Dental and Implant Centre recognise that having dental implants is a big step for most people. After all properly placed implants are an investment in your oral health, and they can make all the difference to facial aesthetics.
Restoring Facial Aesthetics
A correctly placed and angled implant will support the cheeks and lips, something that is especially important to consider if you intend to have several implants placed. It can also make all the difference if you have suffered from poor teeth for a while, or if you currently have badly fitting dentures. The reason for this is that your face is likely to have collapsed in on itself, as the dimensions will not be correct. Your teeth may be shorter than they should be, and poorly fitting dentures can lead to the jawbone becoming flatter as it reabsorbs.
Having properly planned and placed dental implants in Kent will help restore your face to its correct dimensions, so fine lines and wrinkles may be minimised, creating a more youthful appearance. It can be quite a revelation to see what a difference it makes.
The angle of the implant is also extremely important to its success. When correctly angled, the load will be more evenly spread across the implant, and this is very important as too much stress could cause an implant to fail. It also affects the way the final restoration looks, as if incorrectly angled the restoration could appear unnatural and bulky.
Experience in Dental Implantology Does Matter
Experience really does matter when it comes to having dental implants. You’ll be seen by a fully trained and qualified implant surgeon right from the very start. The correct treatment planning involves having a CT scan and dental x-rays as these are vital to determine where important structures such as sinus cavities and nerves are located. This information enables the implant surgeon to determine the correct size and width of implant for your needs, and will help ensure your implant placement is successful and uneventful. When correctly planned, implant surgery has an extremely high success rate of 95% or even higher. Of course you do have an important role to play in this success, as you need to follow instructions on how to care for the implant site, and how to look after the implant once the final restoration has been placed.
