Do you have missing or loose teeth? Do they affect your confidence, dictate what you can eat, or even change how you speak? For many people, missing teeth cause all of these problems, and more.

Feeling conscious of how you look will probably cause you to cover your mouth with your hand when you speak or smile, and for some people they begin to withdraw from social scenarios completely. This is why it is completely normal to want to find a long-term solution to missing teeth.

Dental implants are designed to mimic natural teeth. They are made up of the implant itself, which is a titanium post or screw that is expertly placed into the jawbone. This acts as the replacement tooth root and it creates a stable structure for the crown, the new tooth, to fit on to.

Here at Barnet Smiles we provide dental implants right here in our practice, meaning you can enjoy treatment in surroundings that you are familiar with, rather than being referred elsewhere. We love the transformation that this treatment makes, not just to a patient’s smile, but to their life. Here’s why…

How Can Dental Implants Effect Appearance?

Many people with missing teeth notice a sagging effect to the face, but dental implants can reverse this by replacing the lost structure. This, along with a beautiful smile, can provide a refreshed and rejuvenated appearance.

How do Dental Implants Effect Speech?

Because we use our teeth to help us pronounce certain words and sounds, gaps in your smile can affect the way you speak. Replacing missing teeth with dental implants can restore this, helping you to get your voice back and speak with confidence again.

How do Dental Implants Effect Eating?

Missing or loose teeth can mean that many of your favourite foods are currently off the menu. A steak or crusty bread is pretty much impossible, and the same goes for those who wear removeable dentures. Dental implants provide a permanent solution that you can rely on, so go ahead and bite into that crunchy apple once again!

What is the next step for Dental Implant treatment?

The first step is to book a consultation so that we can get a really clear picture of your general and oral health. We will carry out a full assessment of your teeth and take some X-rays too. You will have the chance to ask lots of questions about the treatment and tell us what you like and dislike about your smile so that we can discuss all the options available to you and help you plan your dream smile.
