Why Dental Implants In Ipswich Could Be The Right Fit For You


Have you been going back and forth wondering and worrying about how you’re going to replace your missing teeth? Yes? Then this is for you. Dental implants in Ipswich have long taken over as one of the leading forms of tooth replacement, and although, at first, the whole process can feel super daunting, we at Ipswich Dental Surgery want to explain why a little discomfort in the beginning could have serious payoffs.

What Are Dental Implants?

A dental implant is basically a screw-and-bolt system designed to both look and feel like natural teeth, and although there are many other systems out there that do just this, dental implants are the only system made to fully function like natural teeth. More on that a little later though; for now, we want to focus purely on the mechanics of the system.

Dental implants in Ipswich are made up of two sections; the first is the anchor, which is the part that acts like your natural tooth root. This anchor is drilled and fixed directly into the jaw bone to allow the jaw bone to heal around it and offer deep support for the second part of the implant, the crown, to be screwed on top. The crown is what we call the false tooth. This tooth will be made to specifically match your own natural teeth, which is why this system is amazing.

Why Dental Implants?

Okay, so if just understanding them is not enough, we at Ipswich Dental Surgery have piled together all our favourite bonus points of dental implants over other systems.


Look, let’s cut straight to it here; tooth replacements can sometimes just not look great. For example, you can sometimes tell that someone is wearing false teeth. However, with implants, this is not an issue; your false teeth are basically real teeth, so no need to worry about how they look.


If you are one of the younger patients, we’re talking more about how you feel since how your teeth feel in your mouth can be really important for your confidence. You wouldn’t want to worry about teeth slipping or moving or even think about removing them before or after meals etc. You also wouldn’t want to be running your tongue and thinking they don’t feel right; it’s just a daily reminder of what you have lost. With dental implants, this isn’t an issue either.


Now for the cherry on top of the implant cake: bone development. You may or may not know that one of the biggest causes of tooth loss is bone regression, which is basically the breaking down of the jaw bone. Bone regression is only made worse when the jaw bone is not stimulated when tooth loss occurs, but with implants, this is not the case. Dental implants in Ipswich stimulate bone development at the core of the bone and help maintain healthy levels of bone development to keep both the implants and natural teeth strong and healthy.
